I killed the breaker on my hot water heater circuit without turning off the inside 12V lighted switch and it caused the left reset switch to trip. I thought the left one was for LP.
Does this sound normal? Flipping the breaker without turning off the lighted 12V inside switch causes the thermocouple reset switch to trip.
