These electrical circuit breakers automatically cut or trip the light in the event of an electrical dispute.

Eletrical panel plays a vital role to maintain the balance among the circuits. Also ensure that you do not plug too many switches to the electric outlet.

  • Overloading

The overloading circuit is one of the main cause of electrical circuit breaker tripping. It happens when you put high power consuming plugs or multiplugs to a single electrical outlet causing the supply to overload. When the outlet capacity is overburdened, the circuits breaker trips and cuts off the power supply. Never try to put too many plugs into a single electrical outlet at a same time. Avoid the high power consuming appliances
