Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Will not stay "ON"

\015 For no reason i can see one breaker in my breaker box will not stay on, a Cutler hammer 15 amp arc test, only my daughters room ( w/3 outlets and 1 double light switch 1 for the lights others for the ceiling fan installed when built) and hallway and attic light and (1) outlet all of them off and nothing plugged in. Last night I reset it and it worked for about 5 minutes tops and now after the best inspection i can do in the attic can't see any frayed wires (???) the breaker when pushed to the on position will immedatiedly(sp) click off.\015\012\015\012Side Note: for about three days before this we could hear a clicking in my room (the box is attached outside of my room) right where the clicking was coming from.\015

Answers :

That clicking is probably arcing from a loose wire somewhere like on a outlet or the hot wire is touching a ground ( metal) somewhere.. you have to disconnect every light and outlet that the fuse is on and one by one reconnect them to find the culprit...Also it is possible for the breaker itself to be bad
