I'm assuming you mean 100 amp service, not circuit breaker? The NEC code states the minimum service is 100A. Depending on your definition of "small", this would be sufficient. It all depends on your large loads too (Electric water heater, Air conditioner, electric range, etc). These appliances can pull some large amperage.

A circuit breaker has a small handle that will flip to the open position due to overload.

either the breaker is too small or the refrigerator is causing an overload

No, the breaker is there to trip at 20 amps because the supply wiring can only supply 20 amps max at that point. So a larger breaker could give you a house fire.

For small networks, hubs are sufficient.

A small appliance circuit will be protected by a circuit breaker rated at 15 amps if the circuit wires are #14. If the circuit wires are #12 then a 20 amp circuit breaker could be used.

Yep. The water heater will warm up the area in which the water heater is located. You will find out later if it is sufficient heating.

A heater may not be keeping a house warm because it is too small for the space. An older heater may not be performing as it should. If you are getting no heat from the heater, you may have blown a fuse and should check the circuit breaker box.

There is no reset button on a central air unit, there is a small breaker or fuse box outside next to the unit, it is possible the fuse is blown or breaker tripped.

In North America the smallest breaker to be used in the home electrical system is a 15 amp breaker. These breakers are used to protect the lighting and receptacle circuits. The capacity of a 15 amp breaker is enough to power most small appliances for the home. Larger appliances will need larger size breakers and usually are dedicated to the one appliance.

Small size home breakers have a fixed setting and can not be adjusted. Three phase moulded case breakers have adjustable trip settings on the load side of the breaker. These overloads can be set for motor inrush to stop the breaker from needless tripping and yet still protect the other equipment down stream from the breaker.
