Q: A: Frank Culley Why shouldn’t I shut off my main breaker? All too often I receive a call from someone who had shut off the main breaker so they could do some electrical repair. They call me because they can’t turn the main breaker back on and thus they have no power. The main breaker should only be used for emergencies such as the Fire Department. Use the smaller breakers to turn off the power. Sometimes an electrician can reset these main breakers, but if not, it must be replaced and this requires a complete PG&E power shut down.
