7. What is the difference between a circuit breaker and a fuse what is the difference between a breaker and a fuse ?
- Both are designed to interrupt the flow of electricity either from an overload or short circuit.
- A circuit breaker is the more modern method used. It has an internal switch that will trip during an overload or short circuit. This prevents the current from going any farther and damaging equipment or in the case of your home, anything plugged into the outlets, like a refrigerator or a computer. Once the danger of the surge has passed, the circuit breaker can be reset.
- A fuse on the other hand, isn’t used in new construction. You can find them in older homes and buildings. A fuse is either AC (high voltage) or DC (low voltage). It acts like a breaker, but instead of resetting it, you manually have to replace it since it has a metal strip or a strand that sparks during an overload or short circuit. That strip melts and the fuse burns out. The fuse is just less efficient and has to be replaced while a circuit breaker switch can be reset easily.

Ans. Check your metre box to see if any switches are off and if it still persist to keep tripping after attempting to turn on contact an electrician.
10. Why won’t my tripped circuit breaker turn back on?
Ans. You will need to make sure the switch on the circuit breaker is completely in the ‘off’ position first. If you can flick it back to the ‘on’ position without it tripping again, it should work. If it trips again or won’t switch back to the ‘on’ position, you will need to call an electrician.
