Locating a Circuit Breaker or Fuse :
1. Plug the transmitter into the receptacle.
2. Go to the circuit breaker panel box.
3. Turn the receiver on.
4. Place the flat surface of the tapered end of the receiver directly onto the circuit breaker or fuse as shown. If the receiver is held at any other angle, inaccurate readings may occur.
5. Slide the nose of the receiver down each breaker along both sides of the panel. Note that the receiver will beep frequently as it measures the relative signal strength.
6. Move the receiver down each breaker once more. On the second pass, the receiver will beep and the red LED will not light only at the circuit breaker powering the transmitter.
7. Trip the breaker off and check that the LED on the transmitter in the outlet is offto confirm you have found the correct breaker or fuse.

Locating a Circuit Breaker or Fuse Controlling an Incandescent Light Fixture :
1. If the incandescent light fixture is controlled by a wall switch, make sure the wall switch is OFF.

4. Plug the transmitter into the adapter.
5. Turn on the wall switch and follow the procedure described in Locating a Circuit Breaker or Fuse, steps 3 through 7.
