Dryer is tripping all electric in the garage everytime it is put on any ideas why? (looked at plug, checked wiring, changed fuse, emptied water and fluff filter)


First of all, if your dryer is tripping ALL the electric in the garage, you may be overloading the circuit capacity of the garage service. A major appliance such as a dryer should have its own dedicated circuit. That is, a circuit that ONLY the dryer is connected to with a separate service breaker. You may not have a problem with the appliance at all. It may be just be a matter of overloading. You should have a 220 VAC circuit breaker rated at a minimum of 30 amps for an ELECTRIC dryer. Or, a 120VAC circuit breaker rated at 15 to 20 amps for a GAS dryer.

You may also want to check to make sure you have the appliance wired correctly. If this is an ELECTRIC dryer, the following link explains how the appliance needs to wired:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575913-installing_a_220_vac_appliance_cord

If you have a GAS dryer, it should use a 110-120VAC configuration using either 14 gauge wiring for a 15 amp breaker and 12 gauge wiring for a 20amp. The power cord should be of the three-prong variety (HOT, NEUTRAL and GROUND). The color code for the wiring is as follows:

BLACK - HOT (110-120VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN - GROUND (Usually wired to a terminal lug at the terminal block on the appliance)

If you're dryer is already configured with a dedicated circuit breaker, please post back with a MODEL NUMBER and WHICH fuse you are referring to that is blowing. I hope this information is helpful.

I have an ITE breaker panel (G2020MB1100) with Q115 breakers, but need to add a 15 amp circuit. Will a Q1515NC fit into one of the Q115 slots?


Yes they will fit. They are both a single pole breaker. Turn the breakers over. They should look the same and snap into a single slot in the panel the same.

Not sure what you mean by No Clip? A Square D QO Breaker has a metal clip that snaps into the panel on the breaker mount and one on the Bus Bar.

I need to buy a 20/20 Amp Bulldog breaker for a dryer and any installation tipes


Most electrical dryers are 220 volt. They usually require at least a two pole 30 amp circuit with #10 wire. The breakers you need can be found at most hardware and buidling type stores, Ace , Home depot, Lowes.
Yes they would have the 20/20 breaker also.

Please Vote !!

Installing a 220 circuit breaker


First you must have space for a double pole 30 amp breaker in your panel.
Otherwise is is almost the same as the one you installed before, exception is 2 hots both going to the breaker.
The green goes to ground. The white goes to neutral. The black and red go to the breaker.

Appliance rewiring wiring WIRLPOOL ULTIMATE CARE II


The Whirlpool Ultimate Care II cannot be outfitted for a standard 115 VAC wall outlet. Your dryer is a 220 VAC appliance. It needs to have it own dedicated 30 amp, 220 VAC circuit with the proper outlet and power cord installed. The dryer heating circuits and timer will not run on 115 VAC. I think you need to reconsider what you are about to do...
