:surprise: Kitchen , Have Split Wall Plugs.. Wife plugged into 2 Separate wall plugs .. Breakers Blew, the 2 / 15 amp Breakers that are joined popped.. Tried Flicking On / Off , No Resistence doesn't seem to want to Click On ?? Would that mean the Breaker is Completely Toast ??:glasses:

Make sure to turn the breaker all the way off, then all the way on if you didn't already. Usually a 240 short will trip a main so check those too. I've never toasted a breaker before but I'm sure that's a possibility.

:glasses: House was Built in the Mid 70's , Breaker Panel / Breakers are a Commander Brand which is Non-Existent anymore.. Apparently part of Eaton Canada now.. 10-4 on Flipping the Switch On / Off a number of times.. It should give Resistence , Hard Click On / Off .. Won't do that... Open Concept , On the Kitchen side , one wall has 2 Plugs either side of the Sink.. Other wall has 2 plugs either side of where the Stove Top Incert used to be .. It was the Breaker to these 2 plugs that Popped.. The Fridge is along same wall with it's own Plug, didn't effect it..

Try disconnecting the wires from the circuit breaker, then reset it. If it resets, you have a wiring problem and should open up the affected outlets. If it still won't reset, replace the circuit breaker.

The Breaker is a 2 pole BQL 15 amp.. The House was Built / Wired in the Mid 70's.. The Panel & Breaker mfg. at the time was Commander which is Defunct and now part of Eaton Products.. Have gone ahead a bought a Replacement Breaker..

@MrElecticianTV.. Considering the Commander Brand Panel & Breakers are now Defunct.. We went ahead and Switched Out the Breaker .. All is Good, Wife is Happy we're back in Business.. Cheers Thanks and Thanks for the Comebacks:vs_cool:
