        Q: What to do with the circuit breaker?
A: A circuit breaker is an overcurrent protect device . They 's use everwhere from the miniature circuit breaker which protection a simple light circuit in your home , to enormous circuit breakers that protect transmission lines . 

Q: Two breakers controlling same circuit?
A: Circuit breakers 're like fuzes that you are able restart . There was not necessary for two though since they do the same work as one , which consisted in open the circuit as briefly as the voltage that is being are asking for by everyone the devices becomes larger than the twelve0v you mentioned.\n . \n . It sounds to me like you 're speak about a three wire splitting receptacle On kitchen counter plugs and are sometimes other placements the electric code required to splitting receptacles install them . Thhereby requests comes justbout by people was endeavouring to plug too numerous appliances into one fifteen amp circuit . The circuit not being able to carry the loading and continuously tripping the breaker . On a splitting receptacle the tie bar is deleted on the hot side ( brass ) of the receptacle but not on the neutral ( silver ) side . The red wire 's connected to the top brass screw members , the black wire 's connected to the bottom brass screw and the white ( neutral ) wire 's connected to the other side of the receptacle The rating of the breaker in the panel will be , 2 pole fifteen amp . What this gives you is 2 separated 120 volt fifteen amp circuits on one receptacle If the voltage 's measured between the two hot slots on the rights side of the receptacle upper and lower you would measure 240 volts . This voltage would solely be 240 if the breaker feeding the receptacle was properly documented sized 2 pole and not mini breakers.. 

Q: Circuit breakers can be reset and used again?
A: I 'm assuming this situation is a feature breaker you would find in your home . Pull the breaker to the off stance was later to the on stance . When the breaker blows on overcurrent , it will go to somewhere between the off and on stance and open the circuit . From this position , you are able not force it to close ( on stance ) without firstly taking it totally to the off stance .
