How Do I Reset a Tripped Breaker?
If you believe an appliance caused the blown fuse, unplug or turn the appliance off. Next, look for your sub panel. The subpanel is a gray or black metal box typically located behind a door in a utility room, closet, or garage. Once you open the panel door, identify the switch in the opposite/ off position. When a breaker flips it will either flip all the way off or partially. If you are unable to identify which breaker has flipped – flip all of your breakers to the off position.
- Flip the breaker all the way off by pressing firmly.
- Flip the breaker back on. A properly reset breaker will snap back into place.
- If the breaker is resisting the on position, leave the breaker in the off position and contact an electrician. If the breaker flips again after resetting, contact us for help.
