How to Reset a Circuit Breaker

Locate the tripped circuit breaker.

Here’s where the flashlight comes in handy! Find the circuit breaker that is near the Off position or not in the fully On position. The circuit break flips the switch toward the Off position, but it doesn't move all the way off.

Some breakers will show a bit of red (on the switch) if they’re tripped.
