An electrical panel or circuit breaker panel is where electrical currents from the grid are divided into circuits throughout the house. The panel prevents overloads by temporarily shutting off and tripping a breaker. If circuit breakers keep tripping, the problem may be a faulty or older panel. Another possibility is a short circuit: a hot wire is connecting with a neutral wire in an outlet. If the hot wire is touching the metal housing, then a ground-fault surge will occur. A final possible cause of breaker tripping is an overloaded circuit. To fix problems with electricity, always contact licensed professionals.

Key Takeaways:

  • The panel, not the circuit, could be the problem, and an older panel can be replaced.
  • If an outlet’s hot wire is connecting with its neutral wire, it will trigger the breaker.
  • The problem may also be a ground-fault surge or an overloaded circuit.
