main breaker-how to tell if defective?

I remember what Sam Walton said when the stock market crashed in the 80's. He lost a few billion dollars and he said "it's only paper".

True, he still had a few billion, but it helped me to realize that stuff is....well....it's stuff.

You will shake off your losses and move on with your life. I consider any money I've ever lost, tuition. If you have learned something from it then it wasn't in vain.

A breaker may be really inexpensive...less than $30. I save all the old main breakers I pull out and would gladly give one to someone in need. If you can get a breaker (don't steal one...karma's a *****) ask the power company guy to install it. Sometimes they will help you out.

If you have a camera, post a pic of the breaker.
