What Makes a Circuit Breaker Different from an Electrical Panel?
A circuit breaker is a safety device designed to automatically interrupt the flow of electrical current in a circuit when it detects an overload, short circuit, or other electrical faults. Circuit breakers protect your electrical system and appliances from damage and prevent potential electrical fires. They come in various sizes and capacities, depending on the electrical load they are designed to handle. Circuit breakers can be reset manually once the issue causing the trip has been resolved.
An electrical panel, also known as a breaker box or distribution board, is the central hub where the power from the utility company enters your property and gets distributed to the individual circuits throughout the building. The electrical panel houses multiple circuit breakers, each responsible for protecting a specific circuit or area of your home or business. Electrical panels can vary in size and capacity, depending on the property's electrical needs.

Signs that Your Circuit Breaker Needs to Be Repaired or Replaced
- Frequent Tripping: If your circuit breaker trips frequently, even after resetting it, there may be an issue with circuit overloads, short circuits, or faulty wiring that needs to be addressed.
- Burning Smells: A burning smell coming from your electrical panel or circuit breaker may indicate overheating, damaged wiring, or other problems that can pose a fire risk.
- Physical Damage: Visible signs of damage, such as charring, discoloration, or burn marks around the circuit breaker, can indicate internal issues that need to be repaired or replaced.
- Inability to Reset: If you're unable to reset a tripped circuit breaker or if it immediately trips again after being reset, it could be a sign that the breaker is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.
- Warm or Hot Breaker: Circuit breakers should not feel warm or hot to the touch. If they do, it could be a sign of an overloaded circuit or a faulty breaker that requires replacement.
- Buzzing or Humming Noises: Unusual noises, such as buzzing or humming, coming from your circuit breaker can indicate a problem with the breaker itself or the connections within the panel.
- Outdated Breakers: Older circuit breakers, especially those that have been in use for more than 20-25 years, may not provide adequate protection and should be inspected and potentially replaced by a professional.
If you notice any of these signs, it's crucial to call our Albuquerque circuit breaker services team at (888) 246-0785 or our El Paso team at (915) 228-3358 to diagnose and repair or replace the faulty circuit breaker. Our estimates are free!

How to Deal with Frequent Circuit Breaker Trips
- Identify the Cause: Determine which appliances or devices are causing the breaker to trip. Unplug all devices from the affected circuit, then plug them back in one at a time while monitoring the breaker. This process will help you identify if a specific device is causing the problem.
- Check for Overloads: Overloaded circuits are a common cause of breaker trips. Ensure that you're not using too many high-wattage devices on a single circuit simultaneously. You may need to redistribute the electrical load by moving some devices to different circuits or unplugging them when not in use.
- Inspect Your Devices: Check for damaged cords, plugs, or devices that could be causing short circuits. Replace any faulty equipment to prevent further issues.
- Reset the Breaker Properly: When resetting a tripped breaker, turn it fully off before switching it back on. This ensures that the breaker resets correctly.
- Test Your GFCI Outlets: If your circuit breaker trips frequently and is connected to a GFCI outlet, test the outlet using the built-in "Test" button to ensure it's functioning correctly.
- Schedule an Electrical Inspection: If the issue persists, contact a licensed electrician to inspect your electrical system and identify the cause of the frequent trips. They can also check for outdated wiring, faulty breakers, or other potential hazards.
- Upgrade Your Electrical System: In some cases, frequent breaker trips may indicate that your electrical system needs an upgrade. An electrician can assess your system's capacity and recommend necessary upgrades, such as installing new circuits, replacing old breakers, or upgrading your electrical panel.
