Circuit Breakers

These offer benefits over old fashioned safety fuses, they react faster, and when they trip you just have to reset the switch instead of changing the fuse.

My problem is my flat is getting older and a couple of times circuit breakers tripped and then could not be reset.

I had to call in the electrician to take the power panel apart and connect the power cables to a new Circuit Breaker as this work is beyond my wife's faith in my DIY abilities.

I am surprised there are no plugin type Circuit Breakers so one could just pull out the broken one and stick in a new one instead of changing the cables over. Or maybe they do exist? Does anyone know and what would they recommend to comply with the fussy Swiss regulations?
