Q: A: Frank Culley Do circuit breakers always protect my wiring from overheating? Not necessarily, breakers sometimes take several seconds to trip, even with a direct short circuit. (Zinsco & Federal Pacific breakers sometimes don’t ever trip) Unfortunately, even correctly sized circuit breakers are affected by temperature, their age and the length of the circuit. Breakers are installed and then forgotten, thus the mechanical linkage inside breakers gets stuck. Breakers (excluding old main breakers) need to be operated at least once a year.
