Hi everyone. I had actually to turn off my circuit breaker at the key switch. As soon as i walk to turn it ago on, it will not move, prefer its locked or something. Ns think the difficulty is me - I need to be doing something wrong. Ns looked on the web, too many of information on resetting, breakers grounding in the middle, etc....but no advice on just how to relocate a key switch earlier to the on position as soon as it appears frozen or locked in the off position. Any advice? Thanks!!
Did you press real hard. The main switch has more resistance than the ordinary breakers to rotate on and off.

thx for your reply. It\"s already in the off position. I propelled it over there intentionally but now that is stuck in the turn off position and also will not move earlier to the on. It\"s prefer it\"s locked.

Yep, that about covers it! ns went the end tonight & purchase a headband flashlight & will shot again in the morning. Then reach the end for help. Ns really was hoping I could have tackled this one myself, however no go.
Read this again and follow directions. Girlfriend MUST fully turn the breaker turn off to reset the bar. You have actually not turned that off, you\"ve turned it come neutral position. Push the breaker all the method off. You\"ll more than likely feel that click and also you might hear the click. Climate it\"s reset and also you can turn that on.
Either it have the right to be manipulated or something inner broke... In 35 year installing and also working top top residential electric panels I have only had two v defective breakers... One had the Bakelite part break therefore the it just flopped and the other was literally shed up inside.Worse situation would it is in buying a replacement.Main breakers deserve to take a lot come reset.I have a industrial building with a 1200 amp main... That takes both hands and bracing come reset...Remember snap off every the means and climate push difficult to reset...

thanks for your reply. No, it\"s all the way in the OFF place & it made a distinctive click once it popped tnto place. That wasn\"t easy relocating it the direction either. However now that it\"s there, it\"s no budging. I never had to touch the main breaker before. Ideal now, all I have the right to go with is the they space buggers to move. Its definitely not in the neutral position; I\"ve had actually to reset or turn off individual circuit switches prior to & psychic /know the procedure & the neutral position...this one simply does not want to budge.
