A/C circuit breaker

Circuit overlaod due to an about to fail component, or possibly a bad breaker.

A/C circuit breaker

Usually overload or overcurrent, or is getting worn out and can no longer handle the ampacity its rated for. If you give a better description of your problem, we might be able to give you a better answer.

Just because you can, doesn't always mean you should
