One of my circuit breaker entered the "tripped" state (switch is in the middle position). I can move the switch to "on" and back to the middle, but I can't move to off.
This breaker has two switches (it's a duplex) and only the bottom switch has this problem. The top switch is working normally, and is able to turn off and on.
The label on the breaker says:
Both switches say
The circuit controlled by the bad switch did not have much on it - a freezer that draws max 1.45A according to the label, and a handful of LED lights. The freezer is working without issue from a different outlet.
This happened while I was turning off breakers to do some other electrical work. I was replacing a dimmer and installing a timer switch in other rooms (not the one controlled by this breaker). Both the dimmer and the timer are currently working.
What's wrong with the breaker and why can't I turn it on/off?
