That must be it. Because each of the bedrooms it looks like has one. Seems like overkill to me. I think that bedroom can do without one.

Consider some of the new bedroom "appliances" that do have the potential to get wet.

What you probably have is actually called an arc fault breaker. They are reguired in all bedrooms by the national electric code regaurdless of where you live in the USA. If your home or breaker box is somewhat new than thats it

I thought the same thing until this happen. I have not had one of these type breakers any any house I owned up to now. Only owned two before this, first built in the 70s and the second in the mid 80s.




Thanks for all the replies. I understand why it tripped, it was my daughter using the space heater. Also that one outlet in her room had a TV and an X-BOX connected to it. That is taken care of. I just can't figure why they used a GFI breaker. Why I couldn't just reset it I don't now, a guy at Lowes told me the GFI breakers were a bit more sensitive and once they trip they can stop working. At $41.00 dollars a pop I think I will take my chances with a standard 15 amp breaker.
they are more sensitive, and tend to go bad, just like the gf outlets.
