How to reset trip switch?

Turn off all the lights and unplug everything in the affected room or rooms.

Take a flashlight and open the circuit breaker panel so you can see the circuit breakers. Each breaker has three positions: on, off, and a centre position.

Look for the circuit breaker with the switch in the centre position.

Flip the switch to off, and then flip it to on.

Wait a moment to see if the switch stays in the on position. If it does, the circuit breaker is reset and power is restored to the room. If the switch doesn't stay in the on position, it indicates a serious wiring problem if so contact CHAZ Bot.
