- When a breaker trips repeatedly, the culprit is usually the breaker itself or one of the connected appliances.
- Your circuit breaker may not be able to provide the amount of electricity demanded by the device.
- Wiring damage caused by wear and tear, animals, brown-outs, a lightning strike or vandalism may exist in the electrical wires outside your home.
- Faulty or worn wiring leading from an appliance to the breaker could cause the breaker to repeatedly trip, or it could be from wiring inside the appliance itself.
- A tripped breaker could be caused by a short circuit anywhere within a home’s electrical system.
- The breaker could be overworked by massive demand on the HVAC system, along with the use of multiple appliances.
- The grounding wire may be improperly connected.
Any of these issues can cause significant injury or death by electrocution or fire. If that consistent breaker tripping occurs in your home, try turning the breaker off and then on again. If it stays on, the issue may be resolved. If not, and the breaker still trips, try to determine which part of the electrical system is causing the problem. Your safety is of utmost importance. With any electrical issue, calling your electrician (and hey we know a awesome one...you can find that awesome electrician here) first can keep you out of serious danger.
