Powerpact P frame breaker will not turn on. Handle goes to tripped position.

Issue:
Powerpact P frame breaker will not turn on. Handle goes to tripped position.

Product Line:
Powerpact P frame breaker

Environment:

Cause:
Breaker won't close

Resolution:
The spring on the right needs to be removed.  Current production does not use this spring.  The torsion spring on the left (looks like a wire) should be located in the groove, not located to either side.
Also, make sure the trip unit tab is pressing down on the trip unit interlock.  The interlock should not be on top of the trip unit tab.

Please see the attached photo.
