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.
