How do I reset a Circuit Breaker?

1 When a circuit breaker trips, it moves about midway between the full-on and full-off positions.

2 To reset a tripped breaker, push it to the full-off position (opposite all the other breakers in its column) then push it to the full-on position. If it trips again or does not stay in the on position, push it to full-off and contact Schamber Electric Inc.

3 Sometimes when a breaker trips, it will not move to the middle position. Run your finger down the on side of the breaker. If it's tripped, the breaker should easily move to the middle position. Proceed as follows in 1 and 2.
