Question about Circuit Breakers & Wiring Panels

Please What is the meaning of this? are you serious or you are kidding me? suggesting users to give their email away is not a good idea, not even as a joke.

    I cannot understand that thing on Welcomejee, it was not clear if it was a joke.

    Can I know why the problem should have been passed privately to welcomejee. Not only the picture requested were there, and welcomejee did not post anything significative, but there were also more experts involved. Jaime867 posted the schematics, and I gave some instructions.
    I cannot see any good reason for this.
    Hope it was just a mistake.

I don't follow you, Ginko. I didn't suggest the customer give out his email address.

He has a board nick, its easy enough to reach him with the Ask feature.

    It dawned on me what you were driving at. Jee gave his email out (he's new) and even though he had done this in a reply in the Premium, The customer should only access Jee via his profile page.

    I emailed Jee and explained how to continue this properlyu and apologized to him and then CC'd Lauren.

    You are right and I was wrong. Jee and I both were. Nice catch and thanks. It gave me a chance to email Jee and tell him to have the customer access him via Jee's profile page to continue the repair.

    Your instincts are right. I'm just getting over missing Pneumonia because I had had the vaccination luckily. I was hospitalized for a day while they poured IV antibiotics in me and gave me breathing treatments. I've been on medication ever since and "supposed" to be resting up.

    I have a stack of computers waiting to be fixed too, besides the laptops and I'm getting really behind. Maybe that state of mind is what you witnessed and I exhibited.

    I was really very ill and I've been inactive except for requests because of that. I just finished the antibiotics and was watching the board. So, I think I jumped the gun and its too early for me to get involved this weekend as I hoped to. This type of mistake is unacceptable for my standards and I'm glad you spoke up about it.

    Since the customer had rated all the solutions offerred prior to my comment, doesn't that lock you and the others out from further comments?

    I had read his remarks to indicate he wanted to pursue this with Jee. But, I'm probably wrong.

    Thanks again,

On a 63 amp three phase circuit breaker. is that 63 amps per pase or total over the three phases.

Total amp rating of breaker.
Total amp draw across all three hot wires.
If one leg is weak or gets hot enough to exceed heat rating of breaker, the breaker will trip all 3 poles.

Need information on circuit breaker BR2100 60amp

Hi - I'm an electrician and can help you with your question.

A BR2100 circuit breaker is a 2 Pole 100 Amp (for the part number "BR2100", the "2" indicates the number of poles and the "100" indicates the amperage) circuit breaker. It can be installed in a single phase or three phase 120/240 VAC system panel that specifically lists the BR series breakers as acceptable for use.

A BR260 A BR2100 circuit breaker is a 2 Pole 60 Amp (the part number BR260, the "2" indicates the number of poles and the "60" indicates the amperage) circuit breaker. It can be installed in a single phase or three phase 120/240 VAC system panel that specifically lists the BR series breakers as acceptable for use.

It is not possible to have a BR2100 rated for 60 amps, 1 or 3 poles, or a BR260 rated for 100 amps, 1 or 3 poles.

It is not permissible to install any circuit breaker brand or type in any panel that does not specifically include it on a list of acceptable circuit breakers.

Circuit breakers are designed to carry 80% of the amperage rating.
To determine the load a circuit breaker can carry, multiply the circuit breaker amp rating by 80%.
This means that if you need to supply more than 80 amps, you cannot use a 100 amp circuit breaker. A higher rating is required. A BR2110 would be acceptable for loads greater than 80 amps, but less than 88 amps because the formula above says: 110 amp x 80% = 88 amps.

To determine the breaker size, determine the load (by measuring with a meter or obtaining amp rating of the load from the data plate) and multiply it by 125%. Using the same numbers in the example above; assume an 88 amp load. 88 amps x 125% = 110 amp circuit breaker. The 60 amp breaker is acceptable for up to 48 amps because 60amps x 80% = 48 amps. A 48 amp load needs a 60 amp breaker because 48 amps x 125% = 60 amps.

I hope this helps and good luck!

My 200 amp main well not shut off is there a locking part on this

Hello dana... No lock. A large breaker does require quite a bit of force to go from on to off. That said, having a breaker that is not working properly could be a serious issue. Please replace that breaker or call in an electrician as soon as possible. Joe

Everything I read says this is a 120VAC Single pole breaker.

There is a 120/240 version THQB1120AF that is also a 20A

This link shows a picture of one but please NOTE the link is for a reconditioned CB

Here is a link for a NEW breaker:

^--Seems a bit pricey to me. I would shop around. I have seen these in the $80.00 range but never thought to look to see if they were new or re-conditioned until today.

There is no way I would use your THQB1120GF on a 220VAC circuit.

Aca tenes un manual de tu tv:

La pantalla esa que te quedo fija debe desaparecer a los 10 sec si no apretas ninguna tecla.
Creo que antes de hacer nada con tu tv te recomiendo que seria bueno que te consigas el control remoto original de tu televisor.

aca tenes una opcion a 24 dolares ---->>>

y aca el original por 34 dolares ---->>>

Seguramente con el remote original desbloqueas tu televisor.

Espero que soluciones tu problema pronto.

Dejame saber como te fue
