Resetting a Breaker

Blenders running full force, hair dryers blowing, televisions running…that’s the sound of morning these days.  All of this busy-ness can suddenly halt if the power goes out when a fuse is blown.

Fortunately, there is generally a simple solution to this problem.  It just takes a trip to your electrical panel.  Once you have located your electrical panel you will need to find which one of the breakers tripped.  Tripped breakers will typically be in-between the ‘on and off’ position.  You can find the tripped breaker by physically touching the different switches; it will most likely feel a little looser than the others.  Once you find the right one, flip it all the way to the ‘off’ position, and then back to the ‘on’ position.  This should get everything reset.  If this does not work, you may need to contact an electrician.

Though fixing a blown fuse in not too difficult, it can become frustrating to do it often.  Therefore, in order to prevent that from happening, you can lighten the load on that circuit.  Try moving devices that are not generally running, such as hair dryers or blenders, and plugging them into a different outlet.
