How To Check Breakers & Reset GFCI
5 years ago
Occasionally an appliance which is plugged into a wall receptacle is not functioning properly and will cause a tripped breaker, which shuts off all electricity to that particular circuit. If this should occur, unplug all appliances in the home and proceed to the exterior circuit breaker enclosure. Turn all circuit breakers to the OFF position briskly, and then to the ON position. All power should be restored. Check that ALL circuit breakers, including the main breaker, are on before any call is made for assistance.
In the event that the circuit is interrupted, reset the button on the GFCI, which will re-engergize the protected circuit. To do this, disconnect the appliance, which caused the interruption, reset the circuit breaker in the exterior panel and depress the RESET button on the device.
