    Are you referring to a circuit breaker in the main service panel or a breaker on the compressor? Does the compressor run on 110volts or 220volts?

    BY "CIRCUIT BREAKER" YOU MEAN THE PRESSURE SWITCH. THE THING THATS SCREWED ON THE TANK AND HAS WIRES IN IT? IS IT 115 VOLT? JODY

I need to put a circuit in a distribution board for a 19Kw 3 phase 4 wire + earth deep fryer. What size wire and circuit breaker do I require for this unit? Please help.


Assuming you are at 480 volts you will need a three pole 50 amp breaker supplied by #6AWG copper wire.
19,000/480=39.583
39.583 x 1.25=49.478

I purchased a 90 amp breaker from ebay to power my garage, but it wont stay in the on position unwired, is it faulty?


I have bought electrical products from ebay to discover they were defective, and once the item had been on fire and smelled like it was burned and had to set it outside to avoid PCB contamination.

What to do if 30 amp fuse keeps blowing in main breaker box


A 30 amp circuit breaker or fuse is NOT a typical size used for the protection of convenience outlets & general lighting circuits, especially in a residential setting. In fact the National Electrical Code (NEC) prohibits anything larger than a 20 amp breaker to protect a #12 copper wire and and a 15 amp breaker to protect a #14 copper wire. These are the size wires used to supply nearly all outlet and lighting loads in a residence.

It's not clear to me from your question if this 30 amp breaker is a double pole type that is providing power to a second, smaller circuit breaker panel and these outlets are fed from it. This would be in line with what the NEC would allow and what I suspect is the situation. I'm only going to get into this a minimal amount as more information is needed for me to be able talk intelligently about it.

I would shut off the loads that are connected to the 30 amp breaker. If that is a panel, I would shut off all the circuit breakers in it, then turn onn the 30 amp breaker. If it trips, then there is a problem between the 30 amp breaker and the panel. You may have connected line cables to ground or neutral - and vice-versa.

Can you please explain in as much detail as possible what is connected to the 30 amp breaker? Is it a single pole (120 volts) or double pole (240 volts) circuit? What size wires are connect to the breaker terminal(s) What type of cable is connected to it? How many wires are in the cable assembly or pipes? What is the size of wires? If they feeds a second, smaller breaker panel, where do the wires terminate - into lugs on the top or bottom of the panel or terminals of a circuit breaker? What happened or changed to cause this circuit breaker to start tripping? Is this part of a new installation - and if so, was the wiring done by an electrician? Was the work inspected?

Please try to answer as many questions as possible. The more information you can provide will help me get you the best answer.

Had 1/2 of the outlet on breaker go off over night unable to reset and get ele to about 5 outlets


When circuit breaker trips, all the outlets and devices on it shut off, so I'm not sure what it is that you are unable to reset if only 1/2 of these devices are off. I suspect a GFI outlet has tripped, not the AFCI circuit breaker.

Make sure that there isn't a tripped GFI outlet somewhere. Look at all the outlets for a RESET button that has popped out. These outlets usually have two buttons: TEST and RESET. Press the RESET button firmly in on any outlet found with this button. These devices will only protect downstream outlets, so it is possible for part of the circuit to work and the rest not - due to the tripped GFI. If you can't reset a GFI, simply replace it and carefully replace the wires exactly as the original. Pay attention to the wires at the LINE and LOAD terminals.

An arc fault breaker that will not reset has either failed and will need to be replaced, or has detected a condition in the wiring, outlets and connected devices or appliances that prevents it from being reset.

Disconnect all devices that are plugged into all the affected outlets and attempt to reset. If a reset is possible, turn back to off and plug one device in and reset again. If a reset is possible, turn back off and remove the device plugged in and plug in a different device. Continue in this manner until all the devices have been checked. A device that prevents a reset or causes a trip should be professionally serviced before reintroducing to the circuit.

If unable to reset, there is a problem with the breaker, outlets or the wiring. You should check each outlet and make sure the wire connections are made up tight. A loose connection will be detected by arc fault breakers and trip. If your outlets are connected by wires inserted into holes on the back of the outlet, remove or cut them close to the outlet and connect to the terminals screws instead one at a time to prevent "mixing up which wire goes where".

If it still won't reset, check to see if there are any light fixtures that do not work. You'll probably have to check the connections for those, too.

If none of these steps solves your problem you'll probably have to call an electrician to make repairs to wiring.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply "4 thumbs up" if you found it helpful - thanks.

HOW TO WIRE


A single pole ground fault breaker has a screw terminal on one side for the black wire to the ciorcuit, a white curly pigtail that goes to the panel neutral/ground bar, and a screw terminal near the white wire for the white neutral wire from the circuit.

A 2 pole GFI breaker is similar, But it has another screw terminal for the other hot wire in the circuit.
For a 220 volt, 2 pole, GFI protected circuit, you need to run a 4 wire cable. black, red, white, green.

Two 15 amp arc fault breakers installed on two adjacent circuits. One works fine - does not trip. The afi breaker beside it trips as soon as it is flipped on. We tried switching circuits, but both circuits...


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.

Circuit Installation


The process contain a certain degree of risk, but if you follow all safety steps, you should be just fine. Most standard electric panels have a main disconnect switch or breaker at the top of the panel or load center. It is a code requirement. If the load center doesn't have one, then look for the main disconnect at a different location possibly near the electric meter. Turn it off. You better have a flashlight handy or a caving or miner's helmet, because you are going to need a light source. Circuit breakers plug into the load center. The electricity flows into each breaker via a large metal strip inside the panel or load center. It is called a bus bar. This strip is HIGHLY dangerous. Touch this strip while it is energized and you will very likely die. If a screwdriver you are holding slips and touches it, expect nearly the same result. Keep in mind that even though the main breaker may be off, the bus bar may be energized for any number of reasons! Also, the wires leading into the top of the main disconnect are always energized and represent a life safety hazard. In other words, the inside of an electric panel or load center is ALWAYS a dangerous place to be. The black wire to a circuit attaches to one end of a standard or AFCI breaker. The location is almost always a hole that is drilled through a threaded cylinder. A screw twists into this cylinder and tightly clamps down the wire. When installing a new breaker, I always find it easier to attach the circuit wire to the breaker before I plug the breaker into the panel. When removing a breaker, I usually unplug the breaker from the bus bar and then remove the circuit wire from the end of the breaker. Make sure the breaker is in the off position. The end of the breaker where the circuit wire attaches almost always has a small notch in it. This notch fits under or slides into a metal tab strip that runs parallel with the bus bar. This is what stabilizes the breaker. Without this secondary attachment, the breakers would flap in the panel much like a sail that is not tied down to the mast or the side of a boat. Tip the end of the breaker so the notch slides into the metal tab. You then align the breaker with the bus bar and push it down onto the bar. The tension tabs on the breaker open slightly and grip the bus bar as the breaker seats itself. If you feel the breaker seated itself correctly, simply turn it on. All should be well. Remember to follow the instructions that come with the breaker. Always follow the sequence the manufacturer suggests. AFCI breakers require one additional step. You need to locate the white wire that is paired with the black wire in that circuit. The white wire actually attaches to the breaker as well. There is a coiled white wire that leads out of the breaker. This white wire attaches to the neutral bus bar in spot that is vacated when you disconnect the white wire of the circuit. If this answer scared you, call an electrician!
