There is a circuit breaker that has been sporadically tripping for my living room at night, after everything is shut down. What could be causing the issue?
The breaker is marked with a 15 on the switch. In the picture, it is the breaker in the middle. This has happened about ten times over the course of the last two months, generally 5 to 10 minutes after everything is shut down.
I have read other questions that involved a "loose" switch, this does not seem to be the case. It requires about the normal amount of pressure to flip the breaker switch.
On this circuit there is a 40" lcd tv, Playstation 4, 3 Sonos speakers(1 playbar, 2 ones), a lamp, and a small space heater that get used. There are also 4 track lights that are very rarely turned on. I believe, but I'm not positive that this problem started before we got the space heater out. By shutting everything down I mean that we turn off the lamp, tv, and space heater, and the speakers and playstation go into stand-by mode.
The breaker has only flipped while everything was in use once while I've lived here, at that point in time a vacuum was added to the load. The ongoing sporadic issue had already begun when this happened.
Any idea what could be causing this issue? Is this a cause for concern (do I need to get my landlord out here)?
