The Bigger Breaker
The unschooled person will just put in a bigger breaker. The bigger breaker now is stronger than the wire, and now the breaker won’t trip and the wire melts because of the heat. Electric Service Panels are designed with electrical loads in mind. Wire is strung throughout a structure with electrical loads in mind, and exactly correct circuit breakers must be installed to protect the circuit. The funny thing is, almost every electric service panel is designed differently because of the layout of the building. For example a long narrow house with the kitchen far away from the electrical panel will likely have a different make up than a small two story house with the kitchen right next to the electric panel.
In short, electricians must pass stringent tests to know proper codes, and most municipalities have stringent code enforcement with electrical inspectors to proof any major project.
