How do i install a 14-3 wire with ground to the breaker


Following wiring diagram is for general purpose household 120V-240Volt service.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Inside-Main-Breaker-Box-10-1000.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html

Why are you asking that question without saying what you are wiring? 120Volt, 277V, 480V etc?
What does rating plate say on device you are connected to 14-3 wire?
And what amp/volt/watt rating are you connecting to 14 gauge wire?
No electrician would omit that information.
14-3 wire is usually only for 3-way switches and other light duty applications.
Must be connected to 15 amp breaker and no larger.

GE electrical house breakers keep tripping. Any problems or recalls


You may have overload that power circuit with too many appliances.
Check the load of each of the appliances on that power circuit, add them together and check to see that it does not exceed the rating of the circuit breaker.
OR
You have an overload or short/fault on an appliance on the power circuit that is protected by that circuit breaker.
To identify the faulty appliance, disconnect all the appliances on that circuit and then connect each appliance one at a time to see when the circuit breaker trips out. When that happens you have identified the faulty appliance.

Blown circuit breaker will not reset and lock into position


Replace the breaker. You could switch it with another same rating just to see if that is the problem.

Breaker installed on generator. Keeps tripping under no load after approx. 1 minute of generator running


A tripping circuit breaker is an indication of an overload. You say there is no load on the breaker - how are you making this determination? Are you using an amprobe or some other meter?

A circuit breaker with NO load shouldn't ever trip. Likewise a circuit breaker carrying up to 80% of of the current it is rated for shouldn't trip either. Circuit breakers that carry more than 80% of their load will trip - if the load remains connected long enough. This is called "duty factor" or "service factor" The greater the load is in excess of 80%, the less time that the breaker will carry it before tripping.

An example of a 100 amp breaker with different loads on it (this 100 amp value was chosen for ease of doing the math):

80 amps - never trips
85 amps - trips after 48 hours
90 amps - trips after 16 hours
95 amps - trips after 8 hours
100 amps - trips after 4 hours
105 amps - trips after a few minutes
120 amps - trips after a few seconds
150 amps - trips instantly

This is only an example to show how a certain circuit breaker might trip under a load less than the rating stamped on the body or handle.

A circuit breaker that trips with no load or a load equal to or less than 80% of its rating is most likely defective. You need an amprobe or ammeter for amp readings. If the load is found to be 80% or less, there may be an issue of harmonics that is causing the tripping. You'll need to have special equipment and qualified persons to check harmonic problems. Most harmonic problems occur when the loads are not linear device (transformers). Examples of non-linear devices are "switching" (or solid state) power supplies like those in computers.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

What would cause a 1200A CB Main at exterior switch-gear when running only a chill water pump? The chill water pump circuit breaker is on a 1000A CB panel main. The 1200A CB would trip but not the 1000A...


Well 1000 amp stuff is out of my league, but I would guess it is possible the main circuit board might have sensing ability to detect a wiring problem. Perhaps the 3 phase polarity is wrong, the 4th ground pole is not making good contact, or something. With that much amperage, it could be the main needs more grounding rods spread further apart, and make sure you run an explicit ground wire between pump and main. Don't rely on ground rod at pump. Too many people get electrocuted that way.

LAst night we lost two rooms completely light and outlets. we try the reset the breaker nothing would come on. This morning we unplug everything turned on the breaker, and plug everything back in...


1) A circuit breaker will not reset if breaker is hot, or if there is a short to ground.

2) Hot breaker: If circuit is pulling more amps than the breaker rating, or if breaker is loose on the busbar, then breaker gets hot, and trips.
3) Volts x amps = watts. Add up wattage of everything on breaker and divide by 120Volts and that gives you amps.
If your breaker is 15 amps, the SAFE maximum is 80% or 12 amps.

4) If breaker is loose, you can smell burning and hear crackling sound. Jiggle the breaker around and listen for crackling.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-circuit-breaker.html

5) If there was a short somewhere on the breaker circuit, the breaker will trip.
When you unpluged each device and then the breaker was reset, then that says problem is probably NOT the wiring or breaker.
The problem was probably inside one of the devices that was plugged in.

6) If breaker trips again, unplug each device one at a time, and then try to reset breaker after each unplug to see if you can isolate suspected device.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance.

Drying is too slow
It overheats
It seems to run forever
It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work

GE OVEN DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY JBP69SGH2SS


I am not an expert, but this has happened to me. Examine your circuit breaker and see that it provides the amps that your oven requires. If it just barely provides it, then it could be that your circuit breaker is tripping if you have anything else on that line and it is being used. Especially hair dryers. If your circuit breaker is not tripping, you should contact GE or repair service because you may have a "power module" problem. Good luck.
