200 amp disconnect breaker from meeter box
I just had service put in a building out back. The main disconnect breaker keeps tripping. All wiring is correct and has passed two electrical inspections.

Question... Can the 200 am breakers be bad, go bad, or come from the factory bad? Oh, and there is 250 at the meeter. I tested it and it does have it at the meeter.

yes, breakers can be defective.

when you say 250 at the meter, do you mean amps or volts. Also, do you mean that this service out back has a separate meter or is it a subpanel that branches from your main panel.

Also, is the main at the outbuilding or at the house tripping?

Who did the work?
You need to call them back to check it.

It is unusual, but not unheard of to have bad breakers out of the box. 250 what at the box?
