How much should an electrician charge to change a circuit breaker?

Our stove stopped working. Appliance man came out and said the circuit breaker needed to be changed (wrong size, loose fitting). About how much should I expect to pay electrician?

slippery slope. First Appliance repair means they don't know enough to get a real job. Leading a trade will sometimes get you paying more, ie you phone a plumber and tell him your hot water tank is gone, he will show up with a hot water tank, and sometimes even if it isnt gone, to save the time of returning it he will...

I suspect that depends quite a bit upon the area in which you live. We're in Atlanta and had an electrician to the house recently. The charge just to come out was $75. He replaced a light switch and the total was $125.

Isn't that just a fuse? It is simple to fix. But, it take people hour or two to travel to you and look at it. If it is me I won't do it less than $50. By the way anyone give me thumb down, I give everyone else a thumb down to hide my bad answer.

To swap out a circuit breaker, depending on where you live, should run between $250-$360.

service call + labor $125

Probably $75-$125. It's a simple fix, only takes 10 minutes to do, but they will charge a service call plus a minimum charge for labor. That is just the labor part. The breaker itself will be anywhere from $20-$50 depending on the type.
