Answer: You may have a short somewhere on that circuit.Check your electrical boxes for loose connections.Also believe it or not you circuit breaker may be faulty.If your able to change circuit breakers, get the same amp rating and same brand as the one your replacing.If your not able to do this call an electrician.
