SOURCE: 125 MAIN CIRCUIT BREAKER REPLACEMENT

I would tend to agree with "Tripleauto". If you do not disconnect the electrical supply to the house, you run the risk of having 240 volts at up to about 75 KVA coursing through your body. Needless to say, before the transformer blows out or someone cuts off the power, your corpse will be mostly ash. Call the power company to co-ordinate having the power turned off while you or your electrician do the work. Once the power is off, swapping out the main breaker is a relatively simple job, assuming you can find an exact replacement. If there is no exact replacement, as in the panel is fairly old and the breaker is no longer available, you will end up having to replace the whole panel or add a 125 amp breaker in a separate enclosure in an accessible location between the meter socket and the breaker box, preferably within reach of the breaker panel. The International Residential Code requires a disconnct where there are more than six breakers needed to turn off all power to the dwelling. Check with your local Building Code office before doing anything.

SOURCE: installing a 220 circuit breaker

First you must have space for a double pole 30 amp breaker in your panel.
Otherwise is is almost the same as the one you installed before, exception is 2 hots both going to the breaker.
The green goes to ground. The white goes to neutral. The black and red go to the breaker.

SOURCE: Need Alternate for Federal Pacific Breaker

Does the panel have room for the breaker?

Federal Pacific is a brand name panel and you may be able to find breakers at Home Depot, Menards, or Lowes if those stores are in your area. Bring the panel number to the store with you.

Here's a link for additional info:

There have also been some recalls for these panel breakers. See:

SOURCE: AC Breaker trips and AC Fan turns slow.

Sounds like you have a bad capacitor for your squirrel cage fan , now as for the a/c unit sounds like you have a direct short in compressor to ground or leg to leg , check all wiring to make sure that it is not grounding out or melted together.

SOURCE: is bryant breakers ok in a murray box

Look on the label inside the door on the circuit breaker panel. It should list part numbers for acceptable breaker. The key is the part number. Bryant is now owned by Westinghouse. Murry is now owned by Siemens. While many breakers will fit in other brand panels, they are only code compliant if they are listed for that panel in which they are installed. Since names have changed go by the breaker numbers. If the breaker number you have is listed on the label then it would be ok. Breakers aren't that expensive, if you have doubt, go to your supply house that carries Siemens and buy breakers listed for your panel.

110v working 220v


Okay here goes, voltage does not matter as long as the breaker has the correct current draw (amps) for your load. Also 220 vac is normally provided by running two different phase hot lines into a double breaker. The difference in phase is require to make the item work properly. If you run two lines of the same phase into a double breaker then you still wind up with 115 vac. You might want to have an electrician do this if you do not know what you are doing. Not doing this properly can cause fire and/or lose of life and property.

Electrical on but dryer does not start


Sounds silly, but because it's an electric dryer, it's run on a 220 line. Double check your breaker box to make sure both breakers are in the correct position. If only one breaker is in the correct position, you'll have electrical power, but the drum won't spin.

I what to use 2 20a amp breaker with bar across them. I want to creat a 220v curuit connect to a disconnect box. I want to connect a water heater. How do I wire the disconnect lugs. What order do the...


You need a 220v/20a breaker. These breakers are made in one piece and connect to each leg of the 110 lines in the breaker box. Depending on the make of the box and breakers, some just snap into place. BE CAREFUL IN THE BREAKER BOX, ALL THE INCOMING LINES AND BUSES IN THE BOX ARE HOT UNLESS YOU UNPLUG THE METER OR HAVE A BOX WITH A MASTER BREAKER THAT SHUTS OFF THE BUSES. IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT ABOUT ANY OF THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS OR WIRING HAVE A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN DO THE WORK. BUILDING CODE IN MOST PLACES REQUIRE A LICENSED ELECTRICIAN TO DO ANY WORK OF THIS KIND. DON'T ELECTROCUTE YOURSELF OR BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN TO SAVE A FEW BUCKS.

About the two 110 buss lines, they are opposite phases so when you connect across them you will get 220. The breaker will have two terminals. Your 220 line to the heater will have to be a three wire cable with ground. The red and black wires are the "hot" 220, and the white wire is the neutral wire. The ground wire is the uninsulated wire. Be sure the wire size is large enough for 20A. That should be 12 gauge. You will be able to buy a cable with all these wires in it.

My Maytag Bravo Steam Dryer runs for about 5 minutes and gets hot and then kicks the breaker in the breaker box. HELP!!


Hello there:
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. To decide where the problem lies, unplug the dryer, then:It could be also wired backwardes so make sure to have this checked'

If the circuit breakers or fuses remain on and/or intact when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the dryer. Contact a qualified appliance repair technician. If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box.

Compressor causes 20 amp breaker to trip.


If I did the math correctly, 5.5 HP is right at the boarderline of 20 amps, particularly for an older machine that has some deteriorating electronics.

What to do? Can you reconfig the motor to run on 220 Volts??? It would then run on 1/2 the amps.

If you have a dedicated 120 line for this compressor now ... all you have to do to change that to 220 is change the breaker (I presume you have a vacant slot to do this). Find the "neutral" for that wire (white) ane make it the "red" for your compressor line ... (and mark it as such for your future behefit) change the outlet from 110 V 20 A to 220 V 20 A. Both lines will run on #12 with G wire.

If you dont have a slot, you could change one of your standard slots to a "piggy back" remodeling style breaker (has two breakers in one slot). This will free up one slot in your panel for the new 220 (double pole) breaker.

Let me know what you think

Running a 220 volt 40amp service for my hot tub.


By code, this would require underground cable to a breaker panel with a double pole GFI (maybe that's what you were planning). Then from the breaker panel to outlets, pumps, etc.

40 amp breaker will require 8 AWG cable.


More info, let me know...

I would like to know if I can power my hottub right to an existing 220 line the tub runs 220 volts 36 amps and I have a 40 amp fuse already installed in the house plug


Check your local codes, you probably will need a ground fault current interrupting breaker(GFCI). Do not skip the codes, if anything goes wrong, your insurance company will not cover. Putting a special box GFCI protected will give you extra protected outlets for outside use.

Trying to install a 30 amp breaker into a ge powermark gold 200


Hello, First, you need to determine if you are installing a 220 or 110 vac circuit breaker. The 220 is a "double pole" and will have (on the underside) 2 tabs for each 110 phase on your breaker box. It will also usually have a double switch tied together. A single or 110 breaker will just mount to one of the "hot bars" on the breaker box. Again, look at the underside of the breaker. Just remember you need 2 wires (usually a black and a red) for 220 and only one wire (usually black) for a 110 single. The neutral shouls tie to the neutral bar on the box (where all the white wires are connectoed to)

Of course, use extreme caution and insulating gloves when working on a circuit breaker.

Hope this helps and good luck with it. Gary
