gfci's are designed to trip if they receive voltage on there ground/neutral side, therefore my vote is for Smithbrother I would say there is probably a partial short somewhere in you system.

SOURCE: I just tested the breaker and it won't reset. I

yes. If you still have the fault it will not reset. Disconnect the out going wire to isolate the breaker and try again. If it still doesn't reset then the GFCI breaker is bad and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps you, Jeepfxr

You can buy an inexpensive GFCI tester for as little as $10-$12. A better one with several mv settings will cost you a bit more. This way you can test this circuit and even GFCI receptacles. Then you'll know for sure if your breaker is working.

SOURCE: How to replace a Bryant GFCB120 Circuit Breaker

If you have a Bryant load center, you can use other breakers in it, including the Eaton GFCB120 GFI since several companies unified their design. The GFI (ground fault interrupter) or GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter), same thing, may be required for a device you are installing, such as bathroom, kitchen or outdoor fixtures.
The Eaton series includes very clear installation instructions, but if your problem is that they are missing, then all you do is install the breaker in a open slot in the breaker panel, but you have to attach the neutral [white] wire differently. On regular breakers, the neutral goes right to the ground lug in the panel. With a GFI breaker, it goes through the breaker, and then is connected to the ground lug.

Can you ptu 2 wires on a sylvania circuit breaker


Yes, it is fine to put two wires on the output of a circuit breaker, but the wire sizes should each be suitable for the breaker size. That is, don't use two 14 Ga wires on a 20 Amp breaker assuming they will share the load. Each wire must be suitable for the full load the breaker will allow.

What model Leviton GFCL should I use? My wire is a 600 volt 12/2 with ground. Said wire feeds other GFCL outlets.


Any off-the-shelf GFCI sold today with work on 12-2 wire:
By code, 12-2 wire should be connected to 20 amp circuit breaker, but typically most switches and outlets wired to that circuit are rated 15 amp. Amp rating is printed on electrical devices.

I have a 15 amp air conditioner, with afci plug on a dedicated line, on a 20 amp breaker. Why does it nuisance trip, and not allow me to reset it, is it because of the 20 amp breaker? DRJ


It's definitely not related to the 20 Amp breaker. You do mean GFCI, right? The kind built into the end of the cord on the air conditioner, right? The GFCI is either detecting a ground fault (which means it's doing it's job and there is something wrong with the cord or the unit) or you have a bad GFCI. If the GFCI is in the wall receptacle, that could be a different story.

I replaced the light fixtures in 3 bathrooms that are all on the same connection and now when I turn one of the lights on it trips the gfci breaker.


You have a ground fault on one of them. Disconnect the fixtures one at a time until the rcd (gfci) does not trip. then replace or repair the bad one.

GFCI on refrigerator circuit cuts off.


Yes. Refrigerators should not be on gfci protected circuits. They should have a dedicated 120v circuit .If your kitchen is new enough to be wired with gfci breakers ,it should also have an outlet dedicated for the refrigerator.

Everytime I plug in the power cord, it trips the breaker.


Refrigerators are not designed to run on a GFCI. Try a heavy duty extension cord to the fridge from a outlet that is not GFCI protected. If it still trips you probably have a short circuit in the compressor.

Blown breaker


It sound like all of those go through your bathroom GFCI. I would recommend moving your outdoor circuit breaker indoors if possible or enclosing it to make it water-proof. You may also do some rewiring from your main breaker box ( if you are handy) to eliminate the outdoor box completely considering you have 100 amp / 200 amp breaker box inside your house. If you still have an old FUSE BOX with 60 amp service, I would recommend replacing it with a 100 amp or 200 amp breaker box depending on the size of your house. I would separate the laundry room by itself with 12/2 gauge wire with ground on a 20 amp breaker. You can then take your bathroom (using 12/2 gauge wire with ground keeping your gfci ) and run it to another breaker in the house with a 20 amp breaker or add a new one if there is room in your main box. Now all you have left is the porch light. You can run that separate from everything to your main breaker box using 14/2 gauge with ground to a breaker in your main box by adding a new 15 amp breaker or adding it to another 15 amp breaker that does not have a very high load such as a bedroom. In general Kitchens, Bathrooms, Laundry rooms should be on there own separate 20 amp breakers. Most every other room can be 14/2 with ground on a 15 amp breaker... hope this helps....Joe
