Circuit breakers

Posted on June 24, 2012 at 4:53 AM
Do you have a fuse board that has circuit-breakers?
Most breakers trip into the down position, and are reactivated by simply pushing the switch up again. However, in some makes of breaker, if you just push the switch up it simply falls back down. To reactivate this type of breaker, the switch has to be pushed fully downwards before pushing it back up.
People are frequently known to call an electrician because they don't know about this; there are some firms out there who will charge a call-out of £75 + VAT just to reactivate a breaker, so try pushing the switch down then up, before you call someone in.
This being said, if you reactivate a breaker and it trips out again straight away, then you should definitely consult a qualified electrician.
