Can Circuit Breakers Go Bad?

If you’re asking “can circuit breakers go bad?” – it’s most likely because yours stopped working, or at least it seems like they’ve stopped working. The short answer is – yes, they can actually go bad. Like many electrical items, circuit breakers could break down due to a few reasons. It’s a good idea to check and see what the culprit is. It may be as simple as resetting your main breaker panel or it might be more complicated and potentially dangerous. Some issues could be caused by a short circuit, an overload, ground fault, etc.
