Hello my name is Oscar Moreno with Moreno Custom Home Visions and today we are going to teach you guys how to replace a circuit breaker. It is real simple and we are going to open up the circuit breaker box here and we are going to go ahead and flip off the main and once we have that done we will go ahead and remove the two screws that are holding the panel in place. After doing so we will have a breaker that we want to replace. On doing so we are going to use our screwdriver to loosen up the screw that is holding on to the hot wire and then after that we are going to pull that wire out, grab on to the circuit breaker, hold it out and pry it out and it comes right out of place. After that you get your new circuit breaker and go ahead and clip the back into place. Use your black wire to insert them back into your breaker, tighten them back up with your screwdriver and then we are going to go ahead and put the lid back on it and turn your main breaker back on and there you are you have yourself a new circuit breaker.
