SOURCE: Looking for 2 15amp single pole pushmatic circuit breakers.

A Google search for "15 amp pushmatic" turned up several links. Here's one for a retailer with new ones and an eBay store with cheaper prices (maybe pullouts):

Main oven wont come on or the light but the fan does


Hi, I hope I can help you. If you're referring to the overhead fan above the oven, that fac is usually on a separate circuit. The oven itself is connected to a separate circuit breaker, hence, that is why the oven and light won't come on.
Check your circuit breaker box, and see what circuit has tripped. Check to see if there are any burn marks around the breaker before resetting it.
The reason the breakers may trip, is the breaker is old, may have the incorrect rating, or may be linked to other circuits, such that when too many items are all drawing power at once, it will trip the breaker.

Outside overhead wires crossed and shorted while removing a small branch. It tripped the breaker. I reset breaker, then lost power to circuit without tripping breaker. Also lost power to a separate...


You need to trace out the circuit. Find out which receptacles,
and switches are not working. Starting at the panel, following
the branch circuit that doesn't work and check all the wiring connections. Make sure the power is off before you check these
connections for safety sake. NO SHORTCUTS!

Replacing a handle on a kitchenaide microwave


Hello

Unplug the microwave oven from its power outlet or turn off its circuit breaker. Remove the right fuse from the home fuse-box if your microwave is a built-in model.


Open the microwave door and take the top pin off its pivot bracket. Lift up the door and remove it from the bottom bracket. Lay the microwave door with its front side down on a folded towel. Remove the two choke screws from the door frame using a Phillips head screwdriver.


Remove the choke cover with the knife blade, starting from the microwave door's top right corner. Pry out the bottom and top right sides, leaving the side which houses the door handle in place.


Remove the choke tabs from their slots on the microwave door frame using the knife blade. Continue to work clockwise around your microwave door; remove the choker cover when you get to your handle's side to separate it from your choke.


Remove the two handles with the Phillips screwdriver. Remove the handle from the microwave.


Screw the new handle in the position of the original handle. Lay the choke on the microwave door; set the choke cover right on top of it. Insert the choke tabs into their slots on the microwave door frame using the knife blade.


Secure the two choke screws using a Phillips head screwdriver; set the microwave door back on the bottom bracket. Slide the top pin into the microwave's pivot bracket.


Press the top pin down until it pops securely into place.

I BOUGHT A REFRIGERATOR, IS IT NECESSARY TO EARTHED THE APPLIANCE? WHAT IF I DID NOT EARTHED IT, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN?


All the neutral and ground (or "earth") wires in a building are tied (or "connected") together at the incoming service main breaker panel - and that is the only place they should ever be tied together - because it is "upstream" of all the fuses and/or circuit breakers which are there to protect the hot (or "live") wires for the various circuits installed in the building.

In the absence of an earth wire (= ground wire in US/Canadian English), if the appliance suffered some damage that caused a short circuit between the high voltage "hot" lead and the case of the appliance, the damage would make the case live and it would cause an electrical shock to anyone who touched it.

If the case is earthed by using a ground wire (= earth wire in British English), if that same damage occurred the hot lead would immediately be shorted to ground and in theory cause the fuse to blow or circuit breaker to open, thus eliminating the danger of a live case.The ground or "earth" wire is a circuit's safety protective wire that normally carries no current.

It is there to force a fuse to blow or a circuit breaker or GFCI to trip if a fault condition occurs in any appliances, their flexible cords or plugs that are connected into the circuit.

By carrying away the excess current in a fault condition - which should cause the protecting fuse to blow or circuit breaker to trip - the "ground" or "earth" wire protects the building and its occupants because the power should be cut off before anyone gets electrocuted or any overloaded circuit wiring or appliances catch on fire.

The neutral is the normal "return" wire: in systems where the load is supplied from only one hot (or "live") wire, the neutral completes the circuit and carries current back from the load to the power station.

All the neutral and ground (or "earth") wires in a building are tied or linked together at the incoming service main breaker panel. This is the only place they should ever be tied together because it is "upstream" of all the fuses and/or circuit breakers protecting the hot (or "live") wires for the various circuits installed in the building.

Warning: we must never assume that a neutral is safe to touch: it has to be checked with a voltmeter or a voltage indicator to be sure it is not "live". This is because a neutral wire is designed to carry current under normal circumstances.

So, if a neutral wire going back to the incoming main breaker panel has not been properly connected - or suffers a deliberate disconnection or some accidental damage which causes it to break - then it and any neutral wires connected to it further downstream will go live up to the break because of being connected to the downstream loads which still have hot feeds coming into them!

That is why we should never use a neutral as a substitute for a proper, separate, ground or "earth" wire.

LD3600WV MAIN CIRCUIT BREAKER


I'm not sure what your question is - since all you did was put in a model number of a circuit breaker.

If you need to reset this circuit breaker: 1) Slide the handle to the OFF position. 2) Slide all the other breakers in the panel to the OFF position. 3) Stand to the side (not directly in front of the panel) 4) Slide the handle of the main breaker to the ON position. if it trips, there is a majot fault that should be addressed by a qualified person (electrician).

If the main breaker does not move to the TRIP or OFF position: 1) One by one, starting with the double wide / large value circuit breakers, slide the handles to ON. 2) Any breaker that goes to TRIPPED or OFF should be attempted to be reset ONCE. If it trips again, an electrician should be called, and the breaker left in the TRIPPED or OFF position. 3) One by one, return the handles of the remaining circuit breakers to ON.

If you're looking for different information - please provide as much detail as you can. Include the breaker panel manufacturer's name and model - and the circuit breaker data.

How can you tell the difference between a 120v and 220v circuit on your circuit panel


The 220V circuits are always a pair of full width circuit breakers right next to each other with a clip that ties the two handles together. A 220V circuit has two hot wires instead of one. It doesn't need a neutral wire, but will have a ground.

Bathtub pump totally dead, pump ran dry for 10 sec, is there circuit breakers on pump motors, switch or is it the motor shot. any way to test motor with removing it?


Normally pump motors are connected on a separate
circuit with its own circuit breaker. At your house there is always a electrical control panel housing several circuit breakers for lights, power outlets, range, aircon, motors, etc...Find a tripped off breaker and reset it. To reset the circuit breaker is to switch it to off position and back to on position. Better still you may reset all the circuit breakers except the main
circuit breaker (biggest amp rating).
After resetting the circuit breakers, try to switch your
bathtub pump on, (to test it, if it is still okey). Other-
wise, your motor is damaged and you got to have the
motor rewinded, to be operational.

Backfeed Miniature Breakers with Solar?


I'm not up to date on PV systems so i will answer what i can about your question. The NEC applies to these installations so i hope you are familiar.

If the dc-ac inverter puts out 2 phase power then yes any two pole breaker rated for the amperage you are putting out would be fine. If the inverter puts out 120 then any single pole breaker will work.

That i know of, there are no 2 pole miniature or two handle breakers. There are breakers with two handles on them but they are tied to the same phase. the only thing i can think you may do would be to put a two handle single pole breaker in place of a regular breaker and then the one below it also. Then hook one leg off your inverter to one of the handles on the top breaker and the other leg to the bottom breaker.

Breakers do not have a line and load per say. The screw where wires are hoooked to is the load side of the automatic trip in the breaker however. The line would be where the breaker hooks to the bus bar but you can't really hook to that anyhow.

I would ensure what you do is up to code. There are safety issues involved. i assume you know your job though so i will leave it at that :) Hope this helped, write back if you feel i misunderstood.
