You should call our licensed electrician at Matt Pearson Electrical when:
  • Your circuit breaker trips constantly, even after being reset
  • The circuit breaker is hot to the touch
  • You can smell burning from the breaker panel
  • You can see visible damage, such as burned metal or frayed wires
  • You can hear buzzing, hissing, or popping noises from the breakers
Never ignore a tripping circuit breaker.  If it is tripping, there is a reason.  If a breaker trips again, immediately after resetting, this is a good indication that there is a short in the circuit and it should be evaluated as soon as possible.
