Some breakers don't visibly trip. You'll have to turn the breaker off, and then on, and it should be good. If not, then it could be anything from a lose wire or bad breaker. I'd start with turning it off and then back on to see if that works. (kinda like rebooting a computer lol)

You need to clear up your post - it is too confusing. Did you have the whole panel replaced?

I see nothing confusing about that post: clearly indicates panel was replaced.
Most of the time you can't visibly see the tripped one.
Sometimes you can find it by lightly touching the breaker switches. The tripped one will often flip off with little pressure.
If that doesn't work flip them off and on one by one untill you find the winner. Then spend some time to label your panel

Some breakers are hard to tell if it was tripped postion however there is one more item is check the GFCI receptale to make sure they are not tripped as well.

Merci,
Marc

Seimens had recall on breakers recently. It involved spring pressure no being able to hold the break points closed. Google it and check the dates.
