Check ot see if its on a shunt trip system. what it means is that in order to reset the breaker you have to see what made it trip. Look for a 115 volt breaker that is tripped in the panel that serves tha line. good luck.

When this breaker tripped, it did not go fully to off. Push the breaker all the way off and then all the way to on. It should be fine. If not manually push it to full off once again and then back on. If both attempts fail the breaker will have to be replaced. good luck.

Autofry trips the breaker when i turn it on. do i need a new power cord?


First thing to check would be your circuit. Fryers take a lot of amperage. I am guessing you need at least a 20 amp circuit for this fryer and if you are running it on a 15 amp circuit it is going to pop all of the time.

2-pole 240Volt gfci circuit breaker requires the white wire be connected to neutral busbar.

Easy solution for 240Volt spa that comes with gfci:
Replace spa gfci with regular non-gfci breaker.
Install 2-pole GFCI breaker in main panel, and connect wire to spa breaker.

Crouse - Hines Murry Style MP or MD 200 Amp Main Breaker Difficult to Reset


A 200 amp circuit breaker has a large spring to assist in rapid opening and closing a load of this size to minimize damaging arcing every time is it operated under electrical load

The larger the circuit breaker is and the more poles (1, 2 or 3) that are being opened / closed; the more force it will require to operate - both by hand or when tripping. Compare the tension or force you need to apply to a similar sized circuit breaker at Home Depot, etc.

The troubling issue about this for me is the fact that the 200 amp service disconnect / main is tripping. This is an indication of an overloaded panel / circuit. I usually see individual circuits that trip in a panel - but often find the that main breaker has only 20% - 60% of its rating on it at any given time. If you're tripping a 200 amp service disconnect / main breaker repeatedly - something has got to give - and eventually the circuit breaker will fail. That may be where you are now with this breaker. You may be in need of a service upgrade (if it is the service disconnect) as clearly, you have out grown the 200 amp size one you currently have or need add a new sub-panel to ease the load that this 200 amp main is trying to supply now.

Either way, you should call a reputable electrical contractor to have your service / sub-panel evaluated very soon. Good luck!

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!

Can i make a 40 amp circuit breaker with two 20 amp breakers?


Yes. A two-pole breaker is just two breakers hooked together. But the very important part is that if one pole trips THEY MUST BOTH TRIP. If only one trips, then the circuit won't operate the appliance (whatever it is) but one of the poles will still be live!

Hello, my Breville deep fryer has suddenly powered off because I moved it. What is the matter, please?


Some deep fryers have a magnetic quick release on the power cord. First, check to see if the power cord is securely fastened at the wall and at the base of the fryer.
Safety features of deep fryers include auto shut-off when oil overflows or reaches a certain vertical point in the fryer, or if there is too much or not enough oil. Drain the entire fryer and slowly refill it to the maximum fill line.
Some outlets, especially in bathroom and kitchen areas, have GFI (Ground Fault Interrupt) circuits which detect overload or short situations and shut off. You can see an example here. Ensure the "reset" button is pressed down. Another cause could be a tripped circuit breaker. Check the circuit breakers to ensure all of them are in the "on" position.

How to reset Cutler Hammer 1 pole 15 Amp


Turn handle to off position and then back on. Same as any other breaker. The red test button can be pressed which will trip breaker. If it trips immediately,unplug all devices on circuit and try to reset. Reconnect each device and see which trips breaker. If this goes to outdoor receptacle, check behind cover for moisture.

I have a 15 amp single pole circuit breaker that


It could be either or at this point. First thing to do, is unplug all electric devices from the plugs on that circuit, and then attempt to reset the breaker. If it does not trip, one of the devices plugged into a receptacle on that circuit could have a short. If it doesn't trip, plug each device in one at a time to see it it trips the breaker to pin point what is causing the short. If the above has no effect, I recommend replacing the breaker. It is easy and inexpensive to do. Just make sure you main is shut off before doing any work on the panel. I hope this helps and good luck!

Star deep fat fryer model #EM14


You should determine how many amps the unit is pulling, you will need an ammeter to do this. Continuity through the internal circuit breaker does not determine the current being pulled by fryer only that it can pull current. If the fryer is pulling more than 50 amps the problem will be in the fryer, if it is less than 50 and the breaker trips you could have a faulty breaker.
