Knob and tube wiring is single strand wiring installed up until 1940. It is not grounded and is unable to safely supply power to modern devices. The electrical joints are not safely inside junction boxes and could arc. The insulation can deteriorate after time and the wire can heat up causing fire hazards.
Knob and tube wiring should be replaced so that the modern appliances in your home are safely grounded and your home is not put under unnecessary risk.

First, determine what caused the breaker to trip and shut off all electrical appliances in the affected area. In your breaker box, find the effected switch and flip it into the OFF position. This resets the the tripping mechanism. Next, flip the switch ON, restoring power to the area. If the breaker trips again right away, do not reset the breaker and call an electrician to find the cause of the short circuit and repair as needed.
