I have a 7 yr old home and twice in the last 6 months or so I've had to reset the breaker for my bedroom light circuit. It handles a circuit powering a ceiling fan, 4 can lights, and a couple outlets in the room.
I believe the circuit breaker is an arc-fault circuit interrupter and was wondering the best approach to trouble shooting this.
I'm assuming I should check all table lamps, clocks, etc for sound wiring but should I also pull the overhead lights to look for issues? What exactly would I be looking for?
Lastly, do these circuit interrupters ever fail? Or better stated, do they fail often enough that I should suspect it might be a bad breaker?
