    I use them regularly. When a system has a grounding, they save some time when searching for the ground, meaning pulling and replacing fuses. And reseting a breaker is easy peasy.

    Someone will come along and tell you about another neat ground finder that is slipping my mind....


    If thinking was easy,
    everyone would do it!

    I had the same issue, then I replaced a rooftop unit with a 3.2 breaker in the control circuit and robbed the breaker when the unit was getting decommissioned. Have not had an issue since. I bought a couple of new ones for techs, they were cheaper than the poppers.

    Poppers can be had in 3 amp and 5 amp, did you blow your xfmr on the 3 amp one? Maybe it's got a slow-blow curve that's too slow.
