Question about Electrical Supplies
I think I have the wrong breaker or maybe i connected my wires incorrectly.
Hello, First, you need to determine if you are installing a 220 or 110 vac circuit breaker. The 220 is a "double pole" and will have (on the underside) 2 tabs for each 110 phase on your breaker box. It will also usually have a double switch tied together. A single or 110 breaker will just mount to one of the "hot bars" on the breaker box. Again, look at the underside of the breaker. Just remember you need 2 wires (usually a black and a red) for 220 and only one wire (usually black) for a 110 single. The neutral shouls tie to the neutral bar on the box (where all the white wires are connectoed to)
Of course, use extreme caution and insulating gloves when working on a circuit breaker.
Hope this helps and good luck with it. Gary
