I have a broaster that turns on but will barely heat the oil. Does anyone know what would be causing this?


Is it made by the Broaster Company or a spin off like a Henny Penny? Is it gas or electric? If by the Broaster Company would it be a 1800 or a 1600? Give me this information and than I can tell you what the problem is. Not an expensive fix either.

What voltage and amperage is required to trip a shunt trip unit


The circuit breaker will have a shunt trip voltage & current ratings, a variable current selector knob, etc. - based on the type breaker (Catelog number). Here is a link to images of C-H shunt trip devices and circuit breakers

The power comes on the clock works but the cooktop nor the oven will heat


It is very likely that one side of your power to the stove has tripped at the breaker. Shut off both breakers together and snap them both on. This should reset the breakers and your stove will be working. If the breakers trip often Have the breakers themselves checked. They can be tripping at a lower curent load than rated.

I have a treadmill on a dedicated circuit that trips a 15 amp BR arc fault breaker. When it trips it also trips two other arc fault breakers. Even when I change the breaker on the tread mill to a standard...


u have a loose connection somewhere, sometimes when an arc fault trips it will cause others to trip or you are having problems with more circuits than u think

Furnace runs awhile then breaker trips


Electric furnace I assume- check with amp meter, if amps are below listed on breaker, replace the breaker, [check both the breakers in the furnace and in the house pannel, even if only one is tripping right now, the other(s) may start doing the same thing after you eliminate the weakest link- don't be surprised!] electric furnaces are notorius for "eating" breakers- they overheat the breakers for years then the breakers get weak and trip too easilly... if gas, post more info and I'll try to help further.

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!

Main breaker doesnt stay turned on


Tripping of the main breaker could be an indication of a short or an overload. To check for an overload you will need an amprobe to test the amperage load on the breaker. Turn all the secondary breakers off. Attach the amprobe by clamping it around one power wire. Turn the breakers on one at a time and check the reading of the amprobe. Most breakers will handle about 80 % of the breaker rating before tripping. If it trips below this point the breaker may be weak and will need to be replaced. If the amprobe pegs out at any time and the breaker trips the secondary breaker that was last turned on probably has a short in its wiring somewhere. Cuasing the breaker to trip. Underground wirng that has gone bad can sometimes take a while to trip the breakers so if there is any underground feeders it may be more difficult to track down a short. If the problem is an overload check both hot wire to see if the load is equal if the load is a lot higher on one leg than the other switching some circuits to the lower side may help. If the total load is just too high you may have to increase your service to a larger size. Hope -this helps

Electric Furnace Trips Breakers


it is normal for a breaker that is run right on the edge (50 amp and your furnance to use 45) to get weak after a while . the first thing you should do is change the breaker with the same type and amp rateing . it should take care if it

3 combination arc fault breakers tripping under load


What is happening is the white wire that comes off the breaker is probably too close to another neutral or too close to a hot wire that is on one of the other circuits that will make it trip when you use a drill etc... Check to see if the coiled up white wire off of the breaker is not near a hot in the panel. I have had lots of arc fault breakers trip for that reason.
