I am in the electrical business and the guy that sells fuses told me that a breaker looses capacity every time it trips and should be replaced. Of course he would say that, he sells fuses that HAVE to be replaced after they blow.

I have a laser thermometer so I will check the breaker for heat, I should have thought of that.
