Signs of a Defective Circuit Breaker

Circuit breakers play a critical role in ensuring that the home’s electrical system functions properly. For this reason, it is important to ensure that you know the signs of a defective circuit breaker and enlist the help of an experienced electrician whenever they may be occurring. Some of the signs that you may have a defective circuit breaker include:

Tripped Breakers

Circuit breakers are designed to trip whenever too much power is being pushed through them. If homeowners notice that their circuit breakers are tripping every time a certain appliance is turned on, it could signify that the breaker is starting to fail. Working with an experienced and licensed electrician can help determine if a single circuit is the cause or if the whole panel may need to be replaced.

Flickering Lights

If the lights in your home flicker regularly or the brightness levels are constantly different, there is a chance that your circuit breaker is not working as it should. While the issue may be tied to certain circuits or the lighting fixture in use, it is important to get an accurate diagnosis from an electrician. With this information, it will be much easier to replace or repair the circuit or fixture that is causing the problem.

Strange Odors

Strange Odors

Any time a burning odor is found near an electrical panel, homeowners should immediately reach out to a licensed and experienced electrician. When this smell is present, it could mean that there is a dangerous wiring problem or insulation issue that is causing the panel to overheat. When left alone, this problem can lead to a more serious electrical emergency or a fire. 

Old Age

Although circuit breakers are designed to last for many years, several homes still rely on dated technologies to power their home. If your circuit breaker has not been serviced in a decade or longer, there is a good chance that it should be checked by an electrician. In many cases, it will often need to be replaced with a safer electrical system that meets modern code standards.

Appliance Issues

Appliance Issues

If you struggle to get your oven to temperature or find your washer stopping mid-cycle, it may not be a problem with your appliances. Instead, it could mean that your circuit breaker is failing and not providing adequate or consistent power. Working with an electrician can help ensure that you do not waste your money on new appliances that will have the same problems.
