[6] Description: Circuit Breakers – inspection and maintenance. Maintenance Frequency: Annually.

CLEANING

Circuit breaker cabinets should always be kept clean of foreign matter. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning. Dust may be removed with a vacuum cleaner or a lint-free cloth or brush. Do not blow into the circuit breakers or use compressed air for cleaning, as this may drive dust deeper into the components and result in damage. Avoid using hydrocarbon based products unless the manufacturer approves the use of such chemicals. If the finish becomes damaged, it should be touched up with an appropriate corrosion-resistant paint or other finish.

MAINTENANCE

1. Circuit breakers should be inspected annually or after a short circuit by maintenance personnel.

2. Operate each switch to ensure ease of movement and to clear the contacts of any debris.

3. If the breakers feel hot to the touch, or frequently trip, contact a qualified electrician to perform repairs and adjustments as needed.
