Your Home - Limiter Service
In order to maintain limited service, you must do the following:
Remove all loads from your electrical system that will exceed a total of 1200 watts (10 amps) or 3600 watts (30 amps), depending on the size of limiter that has been installed. This can be done by physically disconnecting those appliances/devices or tripping breakers or removing fuses in your service panel.
Below are lists of various appliances and the approximate wattage/amps to help you determine which appliances/devices you can operate.
When the load exceeds the rating of the service limiter, the device will operate and interrupt your total electrical service.
If you wish to restore your limited service capability, you must first reduce your load to that of the rating of the service limiter. Wait two to three minutes then go to your electric meter and pull down then push up on the reset button. This button is located on the bottom of the meter.*
Any tampering or damage to the service limiter or its seal is a criminal act and subject to prosecution under the Ohio Revised Code.
* for members with remote disconnect collars, the procedure is the same except when resetting the limiter, you will only push up on the button not pull down then push up.
