reset your breaker...... make sure it is pushed completely to the off position. then turn it back to on. ...... Or, it may be tripping with your wiring job.


Maybe either the hot or the neutral is still disconnected from the circuit? Or, maybe, within a socket outlet you want to use that is on that circuit, either the hot or the neutral wire is not properly connected into its terminal in the socket outlet?


As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

Before you do any work yourself,

on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,

always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized

No. Power to all the circuit breakers will be cut off except for the Main power breaker.

Does power go to a turned on breaker?

Turning the breaker on allows the power to flow through to the outlets, lights, and appliances on that circuit, so yes power goes to and through a turned on breaker. If the breaker is off, but the main power is on, power still get to the breaker, usually from the bus bar that runs down the middle of the back of the breaker box.

Ceiling fan quit working no power at switch circuit breaker not tripped?

I have seen cases where an open breaker is the cause of such problems. It appears to be on, but is open internally. Check the voltage with a meter or temporarily piggy-back the fan circuit on another breaker. If it isn't the breaker it is a connection somewhere in the circuit leading to the fan switch. If the power is coming from a GFCI outlet, check that. Otherwise, you start at the breaker measuring voltage and then try and find other spots in the circuit before the fan switch and check voltages there. You can also go a bit high tech and buy a signal tracer for about $30 and check out the circuit wiring. Then there is always an electrician who will likely find the problem quickly.
