Replace a circuit breaker, learn how it works, and overload the old one

This video is all about having some fun while learning stuff. Learn how thermal circuit breakers work, then see how to bypass the thermal breaker in a space heater, then see how to replace the breaker in this thickness planer, then watch me take apart the old breaker, and finally see what happens when I overload the disassembled breaker with almost 40 amps.

The thickness-planer circuit breaker can become increasingly sensitive to heavy workloads after tripping several times, and replacing the breaker is the best option at that point. This is an easy procedure that can be completed in ten minutes with some basic tools and an inexpensive part. Save yourself some money and two trips to the service center and do it yourself.
