Furnace circuit breaker fried

My furnace has two double pole breakers, The top double pole breaker died and needs replaced. Evidently, this breaker does not snap in like some breakers. How do I get the top breaker out? I notice there are 4 screws holding both breakers to a plate.

Thank you for any help you can offer.

My power went out then came back on and now my ac will run but doesnt cool.any sugestions


Check the circuit breaker for the condensing unit. If this is a residential split system, there will be a single-pole breaker for the furnace and a 2-pole breaker for the outdoor component. NOTE: They don't ALWAYS LOOK tripped! Cycle the breaker to its fully OFF position and back ON. Good luck!

There is no power to unit


If there is no power going to your unit, then check the service disconnect that is located near the outdoor unit. If you don't have power there, then check the circuit breaker in the panel box. There should be a double pole breaker that feeds power to the outdoor unit.

Put in a new breaker box, wiring to furnace is not right. There are 3 wires coming from the furnace, a red wire, a brown wire and a white wire. The white wire is the ground, the red wire is attached to a...


I don't know where you live, so I don't know if there is a color code used like there is here, in Massachusetts. Typically, white is neutral. Neutral and ground are not really interchangeable terms to electricians - but often are to homeowners. Read this until you understand:

1) If you have two separate bars in your panel, and one has only white and / or gray insulated wires connected and the other has only bare or green or green and yellow striped insulated wires connected, you must connect the white wire to the bar with the white / gray wires. Do NOT connect it to the bar with bare / green insulated wires.

2) If you have one or more bars in the panel, and both have a mixture of white / gray and bare / green wires, and the bars are screwed directly into the panel back - or have a jumper connected between them, you should be able to connect the white wire to any available terminal on the bar(s).

Colored insulated wire (not green, white or gray) usually means it is not neutral or ground. In an electrical panel, most times if it is not neutral or ground, it is "hot". If there are two colored (hot) wires and a single white or gray (neutral), the white goes to neutral bar and the hot wires go on adjacent circuit breaker terminals - in this case, a 2 pole circuit breaker.

Your gas or oil fired furnace likely operates on 120 volts (hence the white wire for neutral), while the AC compressor and blower is probably 240 volts (hence the need for the second colored wire). You may need to connect these two hots to one "2 pole circuit breaker" for the AC to work.

A typical 2 pole circuit breaker has two handles tied together - and internal connections.

Look at the wires to get an idea as two what size breaker they need to be connect to - #8 copper 40 amps, #10 copper 30 amps, #12 copper to 20 amps and finally, #14 copper to 15 amps. If you are unsure, and my background on the way things should normally be do not jog your memory, STOP. call an electrician and have it connected correctly and safely.

Try reseting it by unplugging it. Also is there any display lights on (troubles). If that dont work it might have fried the circuit board in the black out.

The furnace part of my central air is wired to a seperate breaker but keeps tripping the breaker and making a spark in the breaker box.


Usually a Central Unit is wired seperate, the Air handler inside and the
Cooling unit outside. It appears that the breaker is bad, is it a Single Pole Breaker?

Another possibility is that the indoor blower motor might be bad.

Breaker keeps tripping from a/c unit


That is usually a sign that either the compressor has shorted to ground or the fan motor is bad.

GFI on cord trips out.


Probable cause is a single pole gfi opposed to a double pole gfi.
* Do not use a single pole GFCI ON A MULTI WIRE CIRCUIT, IT WILL NUISANCE TRIP IMMEDIATELY
Use a two pole GFCI circuit breaker on such circuits.
