How to properly stop a #Federal Pacific main breaker from tripping

Another one from years ago…
I’d bet I will get a bunch of hits on this one…



Roy, that may be the most egregious inspection item of this year or more! :flushed:

I had to look that one up!
I really found it that way… Remove the broom handle and it would trip…Yep!

Good one! :sunglasses:
Circuit breakers will trip even if locked in the ON position. My guess is that the spring latching mechanism was broken.

Good to know, Robert.

I think I remember that but I’m getting a little forgetful. I have to take something out of my brain to add something new and I couldn’t decide what to remove. :smile:


At least the pole was “safety red”!!

I understand that but this one didn’t work that way.
