i installed a new AC unit which ran fine. while still running, i ran my
microwave (on the same outlet) and both units died. i checked the circuit
box and saw only one switch that looked like it had been set to the off
position. i've tried pushing this switch back into the on position, which it
mostly seems to sit in okay, but i'm not convinced it's set all the way (it
doesn't give me the 'snap' sound when i push in on and doesn't seem fully
committed to the position). my questions are:
1. is there a way to tell if this switch is really in the on position?
2. if it isn't in the on position, and there's nothing else attached to the
outlet when i try to reset it, what could be stopping it from turning back
i'm not even entirely convinced this is indeed the circuit breaker
responsible for my AC outlet, but since everything else seems to be okay, i
have to assume so.
tks in advance
