How do I properly reset my A/C breaker?
- Category: AC / Heating Repair Question and Answer
Resetting an air conditioning breaker can be dangerous and should be done with caution. It's very unusual that a breaker trips for no apparent reason. If you notice your a/c breaker is tripped, you should push it further to the "off" position to make sure it is completely off, and then, with some force, push it to the "ON" position. Now, if it trips immediately, either right under your fingers or just a few seconds after you reset it DO NOT RESET IT AGAIN and call an air conditioning company immediately. If you reset it and your system begins cooling again with no problems just watch it, it may trip again later. If it begins to trip more and more frequently then you need to call an A/C company to check out your system.
