WHAT IS THE PROPER PROCEDURE FOR OPENING THE SIEMENS JD63400 CIRCUIT BREAKER IN ORDER TO REPLACE THE JD63T400 TRIP DEVICE

Posted by on

  • Eddie Enfinger Jan 09, 2013

    Does this breaker have to be physically removed from the panel? Can the trips be changed by killing the power at the breaker and working one side of the trips hot without any load on them?

SOURCE: Ground Fault circuit Breaker trips each time a load is applied

The most likely causes in their order of probability are: 1) water somewhere in the circuit causing the hot wire to ground; 2) a legitimate trip caused by a defect in a device plugged into the circuit; and 3) a defective GFCI breaker. In the first case, wait until it has been dry for about a week and see if it trips. In the second case, make sure there is nothing plugged into the circuit and try resetting. In the third case go ahead and put the regular breaker in, then put a GFCI outlet into the first box downstream from the breaker. If installed according to the directions, that outlet should protect all of the outlets downstream.

SOURCE: What type circuit breakers can be used in a 125A Siemens load ctr

Hi,
Circuit breakers for most residential applications like your load center are not specific to a manufacturer, you only have to get the same "form factor" as the box uses. Most often one end of the breaker clips into a slot on the box and the other end (the one with the metal part) slides into a rail that's electrified. You can probably use whatever breaker you see at Lowes or Home Depot.

Regards,
Carl

SOURCE: two 15 amp arc fault breakers installed on two

It's possible that the first breaker that you said does not trip - it could be that breaker is failing to trip on a bad circuit. That is, it could be you have a bad circuit but that first breaker is not detecting it and pretends everything is OK. If your new breaker trips on the first breaker's circuit, the curcuit it probably bad and the breaker in not working properly. The most common problem for failed circuits is a stray ground wire in a box somewhere in the curcuit resting against a hot or neutral wire. You'll have to take apart every connection on that curcuit to find it. Not fun.

If the circuit breaker as tripped ,how do I get it to untripp it


If the fault that caused the breaker to trip still exists, it will not reset. Unplug any devices from the circuit in question and reset the breaker. Then plug in items one at a time until you find the device that is causing the breaker to trip. Then fix or replace. You may also have a bad breaker that needs to be replaced if it will not reset even with all devices off the circuit.

Siemens breaker just for overhead lights in bathroom and hallway Why does it buzz for a second then TRIP off?


You say the breaker supplies power to just one or two lights? And no outlets, fans, attic circuit? Map out all affected electrical boxes.
Move wire from suspect breaker to another same-size breaker and see what happens.
Move wire from the other breaker a to newly installed breaker, to check if breaker is main suspect.

Open each switch and outlet box affected by suspect breaker.
Disconnect power at light switch, and see if breaker still has problem.
Unplug all things from outlets on circuit.
One by one, check each electrical box for burned wires and loose wires.
Use nose to smell for burned condition.

My e wave microwave appears to be in fine working order until the door is opened. It then trips the breaker and ceases working. Ater the house breaker is reset, the power is restored to the microwave...


You may have a short circuit on the INTERIOR LIGHT BULB circuit in your microwave.

This might explain why the breaker trips every time you open the door.

If so, you would have to unplug and disassemble the unit in order to access the wires and light bulb socket inside the case in order to troubleshoot and repair the problem.

If you are unfamiliar with safe electrical troubleshooting and repair procedures, please be extremely careful or consider hiring an electrician to do the work. There are some hazardous components inside which remain dangerous even after the unit is unplugged.

Good luck.

Do you have anything plugged in? If they keep tripping with nothing plugged in I would call a electrician to troubleshoot or replace the breakers. They may still be under warranty from Siemans.

Trouble of closing circuit breaker


Breakers are designed to trip when the amperage draw is more that it's rated for, or there is a short in the circuit that it is protecting. If you can reset the breaker and it trips under load, you are exceding the rating of the breaker. If your breaker is tripped and you try to reset it and it will not reset, chances are that your circuit is shorted somewhere. Replacing the breaker will produce the same results. You have to fix the short, then your breaker will work. Lots of luck for the do it yourselfer, or call a qualified electrican. Hope this advice helps you. Please remember to rate this response. Thanks.

Opened breaker to change light switch.closed breaker numerous times before it engaged.


When you relaced the light switch, did you use the "quick stab" holes on the back or the side screws? The arc fault breakers can trip if using the quick stab holes on the back because they may not make a tight contact. This could be represented if the circuit breaker trips when the light switch is turned from "off" to "on". Try connecting using the screws on the side of the device instead.
