Signs of a Failing Circuit Breaker

Indications that a Circuit Breaker May Need to be Replaced



When a Circuit Breaker May Need Replacing

Electrical Question: I have an above-the-stove Microwave (Sharp R-1406 Sept. 2002) that trips my circuit breaker in the garage on mornings when the outside temp is about 40 degrees or below.

Thanks for your help.
