    Did you check the power in? A bad CB, or fuse (if you don't have circuit breakers)? A bad bus bar in the panel...

    A new breaker doesn't mean: it is installed properly, is the proper type for that panel, or that it works, or that it is wired properly, or that the bus bar in the panel is not bad. You need a meter or test device to check voltage.
