Electrical problem

#1
I have been having problems with circuit breaker popping that control lights and fridge and rear outlets. I unplugged everything and when I flip switch it pops after 15 seconds to 5 min. The other electrical is working. I was wondering if breaker may need replacement. I know electrical is hard to diagnose just wondering if anyone has any ideas.

Welcome to the forum Andy28. Bet there is something else on the circuit that is throwing the switch but the breaker is not that expensive so try a new one. let us know what you find.

Electrical problem

Just for the sake of asking .... is there by chance a GFI wall receptacle on that circuit ?

I ask because I had that problem in my old motor home and it turned out to be the GFI receptacle was bad. When I removed the GFI receptacle there was rust on the metal parts and the wires attached to the GFI receptacle were "burnt Blue" colored.

I guess it was stuck (or something) from the rust and would not trip, so after a few minutes it would trip the breaker in the electric panel.

I did notice that the face of the GFI receptacle was real warm after I kept resetting the breaker several times..

I think I was real lucky that day, huh ?
