    This was extremely helpful! Thought our over-the-range microwave was on its last leg, as the lights would flicker and power would start to bog down every few seconds. If I opened the door before the time was up it would short out and not turn back on unless I went to reset the breaker and push on it. Ran to HD grabbed a slim dual 20 amp breaker and it's all good. Thanks again!

    You said it is important to look at the numbers on the breaker to make sure you get the right one from the store. Would have been nice if you had explained what specific numbers or other information we should pay attention to.

    What a great video, thanks a lot! Being from the UK I have no idea about how electricity works over here in florida but I've just replaced the breaker to our well pump following your instructions.

    I'm shocked (!!), it works!

    I wonder, if you don't have any stickers on your circuit breakers, what should you do? For instance, if one says, 10kA 50, and the one you need to replace says 30 on the switch and nothing else.

    I have a bedroom circuit breaker which trips when my microwave runs (completely seperate kitchen circuit breaker and room). My bedroom is one one circuit breaker, and the microwave is on another completely unrelated breaker for my kitchen. They all seem to be a kind of GFI Siemens panel breakers. The bedroom breaker works perfectly unless the microwave is turned on, which causes it to shut off. When shut off, the microwave works fine and you cannot tell anything has changed. Any idea what is going on in this Voo-Doo Doo-Doo?
