Is it possible for you to post a picture of what your insolator looks like? Not really sure what it is you are reffering to. I have heard of isolator and insulator but not insolator.

Hi Okkiwi and welcome to the forum.


If your referring to the solenoid, yes it could be bad. Sometime you can take them apart and clean the contacts, have you tried that? A picture would help a lot.

That appears to be a auto resettable circuit breaker.


They are supposed to auto reset after a short period of time. THere should be an amperage rating printed on the side. Available from any auto parts store.

The question is, is the breaker bad or is it opening because you have an excessive current load?

Sorry, but the photo you posted actually appears to be of a "manual resettable" circuit breaker. Notice the reset button in the base.
