Main Breaker FAIL

Main breaker is not staying on? Don't try this; call an electrician!!!

I have seen pennies stuffed in the fuse box. That was the old trick that handy men did to bypass a fuse box. It is also a great way to burn down a house if you have a short circuit. That is one of the main benefits to upgrading to circuit breaker. They are harder to bypass with simple house hold objects. 

I guess I spoke too soon. Here is a picture sent in by one of my Technicians. Here someone has wedged in a screw driver between the main breaker and a wall. WHY? Electrician put in fuses and circuit breaker to turn off you power if there is a problem. Forcing you breakers to the ON position is just dangerous.
