YOU COULD REMOVE THE ELEMENTS KILLING POWER FIRST AND TAKE THEM TO THE HEATING AND COOLING SUPPLIER NEAR YOU SEE IF THEY CAN CROSS IT WITH ONE THAT WILL BOLT UP OF EQUAL WATTAGE , AS FAR AS THE 72 COLEMAN THE TECH IS MOST LIKELY CORRECT .

I have a 21b20m 20kw electric furnace when weather is cold the 100 amp breaker trips two or three times a day can you help please


If you have a heat pump you usually have 1st & 2nd stage emergency heat . Your 2nd set of elements may be bad. You can test this with a meter by ohming across each element and it should read a ohm value. Then ohm from the element to ground and it should read OL if it does not it is shorted. Also 100 amp breakers for some reason always fail I have changed more 100 a breakers than any other size. You can also get an amp probe and turn your thermostat up and read the amp draw to see if it is close to 100a. Hope this helps

Nordyne model FEH-017HA-04 furnace...the fan comes on full force with ac but not when furnace comes on


On newer furnaces the fan starts in a period of time factory set and is initiated by the control board. The air conditioning fan is started by the thermostat and starts right away when the stat calls for cooling. You will need a tech. familiar with this model and carrying the right parts to look it over. Does the furnace fire and then shut off in a few minutes? If so, it is most likely to be the board. Sorry. It may be pricy.

I need to know if a double pole 30 breaker acts as a jumper from 1 hot bar to the other.


1) Copy following links:
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Inside-Main-Breaker-Box-8-8.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html

2) Double-pole circuit breaker snaps down over both hot busbars.
Each busbar supplies 120Volts, and each busbar is out-of-phase with the other busbar. Together, the two 120volt out-of-phase wires have 240Volt potential.

3) Does the double-pole breaker act as a jumper?
No.
Typically a 'jumper' wire bonds two electrical connections together so power flows between the things that are jumpered together.
If you 'jumper' one busbar to the other busbar in live 240V split phase panel, it will short out.

4) 240Volt circuit requires two hot wires. One hot from each busbar.
When the two hots are applied to two screws on a heating element, that action will complete circuit, and element will heat.
Instead of shorting out, the element has resistance in the form of a coil of wire that impedes the flow of current and converts the electric current into heat at the element.
This is same as filament inside light bulb.
If the element does not have resistance to impede current, then the two hot wires in the 240Volt circuit will short out and cause flash of overheating and burning that will burn out element. If element does not burn out immediately, and short continues, then the wire connected to circuit breaker begins to heat. When heat on wire exceeds circuit breaker rating, then the breaker trips off.
Circuit breakers are triggered by heat.
This is why wire size and breaker size must match.., to avoid overheated wire inside wall that will catch house on fire.

We are past due on paying our electric bill; hence we a a cutoff in our power... though we were told we will have basic electricity... the lights are on .. but we can use the stove only if we turn the...


There should be a disconnect or switch at the furnace, otherwise you'll have to go to the Main circuit breaker or fuse panel and hope the circuits are identified correctly and turn OFF the circuit breaker or unscrew the fuse. If the panel isn't labeled, just turn OFF the single pole breakers until the furnace turns OFF.

Have Challenger Type C 2100 circuit breaker in residential home electrical panel. Manually turned to off position and now cannot turn back on. Pops back to off position. Also says HACR type and common trip...


First HACR is heating, air conditioning,refrigeration. So in other words you could use it on an electric furnace or air conditioning.
IS this the main breaker for the panel? or for and electric furnace. I'm assuming its for the furnace, perhaps back up heat for heat pump. See if there is another disconenct on the furnace, turn it off and see if the breaker resets. IF so you have a short or overload in the furnace.
If' it IS the main for the panel, turn off all the other breakers in the panel, and try to reset the breaker. If that works, turn the other breakers back on one at a time. IF it "POPS" then it is tripping. Don't keep resetting, find the problem.

Nordyne FEH017HA-04 furnace wiring


This should be 110v so you will have black wires, white wires and ground wires. The grounds wires both go to the ground bar, the whites wires both go to the nuetral bar, or can be wire nutted together, the black incoming (feed) wire goes to the buss bar that the breaker plugs into and the black going to the furnace goes into the breaker lug.

Black wire to eliment burned off running on one eliment


Hello, You can try re-terminating the connector with a crimp on style connector. Just make sure the wire going to the element is in good shape. If the calrod heater element has shorted out it may burn the at the connection again. If not, you have fixed it! Good luck...gary

Electric furnace wire heating up


you should have a 3- conductor # 6-3 copper wire running to this 60 amp breaker @ the furnace to the panel if this is not the case you should replace this with a # 6 as of now as it is a fire hazard as it is and needs to be fixed at once , # 10 -2 wire is only good for 30 amps and a 60 amp breaker will not trip under fault condition and you could have a fire , if you need further assistance on this let me know and i will try to help
