hope this helps..on this question, my problem was a loose wire on the flat plug that is attached to the battery cable. apparently the stereo installation people pulled this plug apart too roughly and loosened the connection. it later came apart inside the plug, causing my headlights, door locks, to not function.

What must you know before you change a circuit breaker?

Before you change a circuit breaker it has to be established that the breaker is at fault and not some other part of the circuit.

Can you upgrade a 15 Amps circuit breaker for a 40 Amp for a 8.5 Watt shower?

Not unless you change the wiring for that circuit. The breaker protects the wiring and if you install a 40 amp breaker on a 15 amp wire circuit you will have a fire in your home.

What is a tandem breaker?

Tandem breakers, often called split breakers or double breakers, provide two separate circuits in the space of a regular sized breaker opening. Every circuit breaker panel has a limited number of circuit openings available. The problem is that when the openings are all used up and you still need to add another circuit, what do you do? You could change the electrical panel or double up circuits on a breaker, but this could place too much load on a particular circuit. So what then? The answer that many have found is a tandem breaker. This type breaker is the same size as any other breaker, but it has its difference. This breaker sports two smaller breakers built into one regular sized breaker. Each has its own breaker switch and the breaker snaps in just like a regular breaker. With this simple innovation, you can add a circuit and protect the circuit on its own dedicated line.

Why main circuit breaker shuts off?

a circuit breaker trips on overload,if this breaker has tripped many times it may be worn out,if there is a overload happening the breaker is doing it s job keeping you safe.Main breaker needs to be replaced when your meter has been pulled(removed from metersocket)Have a electrician look at it and verify problem, you should not attempt to change out yourself it will be live.......

What if your circuit breaker started tripping with no change of things plugged into an outlet Does this mean the circuit breaker needs to be replaced?

Circuit breakers can degrade over time but it would be better to get a competant electrician to do it. It might also mean you have too many things plugged into one outlet. Sometimes one circuit breaker may protect several outlets so it might be tripping because of a change in another outlet. ELECTRICTY IS DANGEROUS!!!! Don't do it yourself.

Can a 8 amp be changed to 15 amps on circuit breaker?

If you are asking if you can change an 8 Amp Circuit Breaker to 15 Amps, the answer is no. If there is an 8 A breaker in place it is sized to protect the wiring and devices on the circuit. Increasing to 15 A would defeat this protection and could cause a fire or cause a connected device to be destroyed with higher amperage.

Is it possible that a circuit breaker can explode?

The definition of the word explosion is, a rapid expansion of gases. It may occur from physical or mechanical change. As there in no gases involved in a common circuit breaker the answer has to be a definite no. If a circuit breaker short circuits internally across the line the only thing that will happen is the safety protection up stream from the breaker will trip and take the faulted breaker off line.

How to create a single 220 volt circuit from two 110v circuits?

All you have to do is install a 2 pole circuit breaker. You don't need a second 110v circuit, you can change a 110v circuit into a 220v circuit by removing the 110v circuit's neutral (white) from the neutral bus bar and connecting it to the second pole of the new 2 pole breaker. A single pole breaker feeds only one hot and returns on a neutral to the panel. a 2 pole breaker uses two hots, you would be using the old 'neutral' as the second hot from the breaker. Keep in mind this wil only be safe provided your breaker only changes from 1 pole to 2 pole and the actual breaker amperage doesn't change. So you could get a 15 amp or 20 amp 220v circuit in this manner. For anything larger than that, you would need to actually replace the wire with a larger size.

What causes circuit breaker to trip even when it's properly rated?

A circuit breaker is dual function. The only time it will trip is if it senses a fault current that is rated higher than the breaker rating (short circuit). The other trip condition is if the circuit is overloaded and is drawing a current higher than the breaker rating. On breakers that protect motor feeders the breaker has to be rated 250% higher than the motors full load amperage. If the breaker has lots of use and is used for a switch being manually turned off and on will weaken the trip value of the breaker. If you have access to, or know an electrician, a clamp on amp meter on the conductor that the breaker feeds will tell you what is happening. Clamp the line and turn on the load to see exactly what the current is. If, like you say, the breaker is properly rated and the current is within the breaker limits then change out the breaker for a new one.

Why do you convert 120v circuits to 220v circuits?

You would need to change a circuits voltage if your adding a load that requires 220 when the present circuit supplies 120. If you need to do so it's pretty simple! First purchase a double pole breaker at the proper amp rating. Next find the breaker in the panel that supplies power to the circuit you wish to change to 220. Turn off the breaker and pull it out. Find the neutral for that circuit. Then double check and make sure it's the right neutral. Then check one more time. Now take the neutral and the hot wire for that circuit and connect them to the double pole breaker. install the breaker into the panel and turn it on. If you connected the right neutral you'll have 220 on that circuit. If you didn't you'll know because you'll trip the breaker.

Can you replace a 20 a breaker with a 25 a breaker?

For typical residential house wiring 12 AWG wire is required for a 20 Amp breaker. If you change out the breaker for a 25 A breaker you would have to rewire the circuit with 10 AWG. In that case you could up the breaker to 30 Amps. All outlets and switches should be rated at the same voltage and current as the breaker.

How do you change one breaker on a 3 wire that feeds two regular circuit breakers to a single arc fault circuit breaker - or do you have to change both breakers to arc fault so each has a neutral?

You can't change the one breaker, but you can't use two separate arc fault breakers unless you separate the neutrals. However double pole arc fault breakers are made for this purpose and the common neutral would be O.K.

Can you change a double pole 15 amp breaker into 2 15 amp breakers?

Yes. An everyday occurrence of this circuitry is in your kitchen counter split receptacles. The top half of the receptacle is a 15 amp circuit and from the same breaker the bottom half of the receptacle is another 15 amp circuit. A two pole single handle breaker is a common trip. If one of the circuits fed from the breaker faults the other connected circuit will shut off also. If you are talking about slot position in a breaker panel, you can remove the two pole breaker and install two single pole breakers.

How do you repair short circuit when all appliances are tested to work properly?

If the appliances all test out and are found to have no short circuits in them then the next step is to check the supply conductors that feed the appliances. This can be easily done by unplugging the appliances and turn on its circuit breaker. When voltage to the appliance circuit causes the breaker to trip. this is the circuit with a fault on it. The most likely place is at the receptacle where the appliance plugs into the power supply. Turn the circuit off at the breaker and inspect the receptacle. If it looks suspicious change it out with a new one.
