How To Reset a Flipped Breaker

Home School Care & Maintenance

1. Safety First! Turn off all the lights and appliances controlled by the tripped circuit.

2. Locate the circuit breaker.

3. Open up your electrical panel and look for the switch that is no longer at the “ON” position – whichever switch is facing a different direction than all the others.

4. Push the lever all the way to the “off” position then back “on”. This should completely reset that circuit.

5. To make sure everything is functioning properly, turn some of your appliances back on.

6. If your exterior plugs are not working – press the reset button located on the GFI labelled ‘exterior’ on the side of panel, once the light comes on power will be restored.
