It's important to learn how to reset your circuit breakers when they trip during an outage. Follow these tips for resetting a circuit breaker:
- Turn off or unplug equipment that connects to the tripped circuit.
- Push the switch firmly to the off position.
- Flip the switch back on.
After the overload is cleared, the electricity comes back on.
When your circuit breaker trips repeatedly, a problem with the equipment on that circuit may be the cause.
Call an electrician if the equipment is unplugged and the breaker continues to trip.
