Circuit Breaker Tip

It’s a weekend, and you just lost power to my refrigerator and a counter outlet. Most service companies charge hefty fees for night and weekend work.

Check your circuit breakers first see if they are tripped.

If one is tripped, unplug the appliance and then reset the circuit breaker by taking it to the full off position then on. If the breaker stays on then plug in the appliance. If it trips out right away, or when the cooling compressor turns on then you have a bad appliance.

If there isn’t a breaker tripped, go to an outlet that you know is working and plug in an extension cord, to connect the refrigerator.

This should hold you over for the weekend, then you can get a service company on regular time and rates.
