Circuit Breaker Basics
Circuit breakers are very durable and it is uncommon for the modules to break down. Older panels with fuses required replacement, but a tripped breaker can usually be reset. However, there are still circumstances where the breaker will have to be replaced.
Some of these circumstances include:
- A burning smell around the panel
- A breaker that is hot to the touch
- Wires that are frayed and exposed
If you notice any of the described conditions, it is important to have your electrical panel serviced immediately. Improperly maintained circuit breakers run the risk of faulting or arcing, as corroded components can breach and directly contact one another. The resulting sparks and heat can cause a serious electric shock or a catastrophic electrical fire.
A faulty circuit breaker may not trip, so it is important to look for any signs of a malfunction. Burn marks on the exterior or a low humming noise are indicative of a dangerous arc fault. In addition to repairing the breaker, an arc fault circuit interrupter will close down the circuit if an arc fault is detected.
Electrical Panel Replacement
If you determine a circuit breaker has failed, it may be more cost effective and safer to consider replacing the entire panel. Newer panels incorporate breakers equipped with a more accurate tripping mechanism when compared to older units. Previous generations of panels were sensitive and prone to short circuits.
A replacement panel is not only safer, but it will also help improve the performance of your electrical system, especially if you upgrade to a 200-amp service. As new appliances and electronic devices continue to place greater demands on your electric service, a 200-amp panel provides the surplus capacity required to meet all your future electric needs.
What if My Circuit Breaker Trips?
If a circuit breaker trips, it doesn’t automatically mean it needs to be replaced. A breaker can trip for a variety of reasons, including a bad connection with a defective device. A breaker can be reset by flipping the switch back to the “on” position. If a breaker trips repeatedly, it is important to isolate the circuit and reconnect the appliances one by one to determine if the source of the problem is a device or the breaker itself.
