How to turn off electrical power?
â€¢ Find your circuit breaker box or fuse box.
â€¢ Open the box’s cover and locate the breaker or fuse on the circuit you want to kill power to. (Circuit breakers are small, usually horizontal switches.)
â€¢ Make sure breakers and fuses are labeled with the area of the house they serve – for example, “kitchen,” “bathroom” and so on. If they aren’t labeled, identify the proper circuit by turning the breakers off or removing the fuses one at a time and checking to see which lights or plugs haveÂ lost power.
â€¢ Flip the circuit breaker from “on” to “off” or remove the fuse.
â€¢ Turn the electricity back on after you’ve finished working on the circuit by reversing this process.
