Changing a breaker?

I currently have a 30 amp breaker that keeps tripping. Not all the time, kinda goes in spells where it will trip every 5 minutes or so.
I am in the process (next day or 2) of changing said breaker with another 30 amp. My question is, can I change it to a say 45 amp? Would that screw up anything?

I am not very experienced at electricity, so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

When main breaker is off, I have 3-4 live circuits anyway.

I'm having trouble with 4 separate circuits, at the same time, suddenly going dead and usually in a few minutes they are live again. The circuits involved are single circuits. Washing machine, both kitchen receptacle circuits, and the clock in the range yet the burners do come on. Possible the burners are only live with 110. Most recent testing was this..With the main breaker off, these prementioned circuits were still live. Does this mean I have a bad main breaker?

When we closed my father-in-laws estate, we found the attached in his tool box and are wondering what it is. Both cylinders are aluminum, connected by a bracket and approximately 7/8th "in diameter. The right cylinder is almost 5" long and has screw on caps on both ends. The bottom appears to have a wax seal inside and the upper cap houses a cotton wad. The left cylinder is about 4 1/8th" inches long and the neck at the top is about 1". When the cap on the angle is removed, there...

Hard wire vs plug in...

I have a house that has a Mercury vapor light in front and I bought the house this way 16 years ago, now I am selling the house the inspector wrote me up for not having the light on a switch. Can I change the outlet to a combo switch and outlet and continue to leave it on a outlet?
