Circuit breakers serve two purposes. One purpose is to allow electricity to flow through a circuit and reach the things that require the power to operate. The second purpose is to stop the flow of electricity through the circuit it controls. What else do you need to know? Here are a few items…

- To reset a circuit breaker, push to “off” position and then back to “on” firmly. It will not reset if you flick it
