  • Can I change my circuit breaker?

    I have a 150 amp circuity breaker..I believe? well the circuit breaker to the kitchen dining room area kicks off when I have the coffee maker and the microwave oven on at the same time..is there a way I can change this one room to upgrade this cirucit breaker for the dining room so I can run my appliances at the same time without having it *click* off and I have to run downstairs and trip the circuit breaker?

    Re: Can I change my circuit breaker?

    In order to replace a common household circuit breaker that is housed in a regular 2-pole main breaker with branch circuit compartments, you would first turn off all of the branch circuit breakers and then the main circuit breaker. Never assume the breakers are off; you need to check for voltage on adjacent breakers to make sure the breaker panel is dead.
