I have a breaker that keeps tripping even when no load is on it. I have already replaced the breaker with a new one, replaced a ground fault outlet and a dimmer switch (all on that circuit), and the same thing happens. There are two outlets I haven't checked and the light itself. Also I have checked for loose neutral wires at the panel. How do I find the problem?
I guess the first step is to find out everything that's on this circuit, is the breaker a ground fault breaker or a regular breaker with a ground fault recepticle. If it's a regular breaker and you changed it, then it's not like an older one getting weak. So there has to be something else on this circuit drawing excess power. Flip the breaker off and start testing everything to see what's not working, recepticles as well. In the event the breaker is a ground fault breaker, you need to remove the ground fault recepticle.
