Circuit Breakers are safety devices. In the event of an overload, they should automatically trip to prevent further electrical flow. Each breaker can only handle a certain volume of current. When your circuit becomes overloaded, your breaker will trip to turn itself off. This prevents overheating which can result in fire.
Federal Pacific, Challenger and Zinsco Brand Panels and Breakers have been recalled because they failed to properly function as they should.
