Is everything on that circuit breaker not working? Breakers will go bad sometimes.

Get yourself an inexpensive receptacle tester (~$4.00 at hardware stores) and test each outlet. It looks like a plug with 3-4 lights on the end. It will diagnose simple problems (no hot, no ground, no neutral, reversed wires) and can aid in diagnosis.

My circuit breaker keeps popping I have replace the 2-prong outlet with a 4-outlets and why is it still popping?

A breaker trips when there is too much current. If you unplug everything on the circuit and the breaker still trips then you have a wiring problem or a bad breaker. From your description it is not possible to be certain if the problem started when you installed new outlet or previously. You have to describe your problem in better detail to get a good answer. When you have a circuit that trips the corresponding breaker, you need to go through each outlet on the circuit and rule it out as the problem. This can be done by pulling each outlet, from the wall and systematically remove wires from outlets while power is off and determining when problem goes away.

Can you use 70amp breaker for 40amp device?

The purpose of a circuit breaker in a panel is to protect the wiring and devices like switches, outlets and other devices that are part of that circuit. It isn't unusual to plug in an appliance into a circuit whose amperage rating is less than the breaker protection. If such an appliance doesn't have its own over-current protection it may well "fry" in an over current situation. However, if your 40 Amp device is directly connect to the 70 A circuit and has no over-current protection on its own you are risking a serious problem. If your 40 A device is on this dedicated circuit you should protect it with a properly sized breaker.

Bedroom breaker keeps tripping out what can I do to correct this?

You need to identify specifically what is causing the breaker to trip. It could just be that you have to many devices or appliances on the circuit; or it could be a problem with the wiring, switches or outlets. Some steps to take. 1.) Unplug everything from the circuit. If it doesn't trip anymore you had too much plugged in. Identify what can be switched to another circuit. 2.) What device or appliance causes the problem? It is most likely something like a heater or something with a motor; or perhaps too many higher wattage light bulbs. 3.) If the breaker always trips when it rains, you may have a water moisture problem? 4.) If the breaker trips when nothing is connected it may be the breaker or a short in an outlet or switch.

What would cause circuit breaker to trip in new box from old box?

A circuit breaker will trip if it is faulty or if the connected circuit has a short circuit or a connected device is trying to draw more current than the breaker rating. If you disconnect the output wire from the breaker and it still trips, it is a faulty breaker. If the breaker is tripping immediately when it is turned on then start disconnecting elements of the circuit to see what might be causing the problem. If everything was working and now isn't, it is likely that the wire from the breaker is nicked where it exits the box and is shorting to the feedthru connector.

What if your bathrooms outlets are not working 4 outlets but the circuit breaker is not fliped How do you figure out what the problem is?

Your bathroom outlets might be connected to a GFCI Outlet. The Ground Fault Circuit Intercept outlet prevents you from electrocuting yourself in the odd chance that you drop an electrical appliance into the water of the bath tub while you're in it. Look around and see if there's one outlet with 2 buttons on it labeled Test and Reset and if you find one hit the Reset button and see if the other outlets start working.
