Circuit Breaker Failure

A circuit breaker’s job is to limit the amount of current flowing on a circuit so that it doesn’t exceed the rated level. The most common cause of circuit breaker failure is continually overloading it, causing it to trip out or open the circuit.

Breakers are supposed to trip if too much current flows through a circuit or if there is a short circuit. Repeated tripping of a circuit breaker will eventually wear it out. Like other mechanical devices, with constant use you can expect wear. Call Rogoz Electric at 623-363-5648 for all your commercial and residential electrical repair needs!
