How does circuit breaker work?

In the circuit breaker there are two electrodes with space some distance.
There are many types of circuit breaker air blast,oil C.B, vacuum C.B etc.
Most probably oil circuit breaker is used. In the OCB, the transformer oil fill.
And these electrodes are submerge.
Now when the electricity flows from one terminal to another terminal, the arc is developed between terminals end inside the circuit breaker. This arc is quenched by transformer oil.And the electricity flows without any fault.

Installing new flomaster xp2 pump. what color wies

Are you asking about the cord from themotor to the control? If so It should either be Green Black and white or all those plus a red. The green is the ground and it goes on the green screw. White goes to the common or line(1) post, and usually red is Hi and Blk low for the speeds. If it is a single speed only no red and black will go to the other line(2).

If this does not answer your question please post a comment with what wires and where you are dealing with.

How do i clean out my system for my oil hot water heater? some how we ran out of oil, i guess we used way too much oil, it usually lasts until november but went out mid sept, i had oil delivered and now it...

It sounds to me like you probably have a clogged oil nozzle. Of course I'm am assuming that you bleed all the air out of the oil lines that run both to the hot water tank and the heating appliance. If you have solid flow at the water heater pump, and the unit still does not ignite, it is most likely the nozzle. Hope this helps

Starting a pilot light on a hot water heater

Hi blaineandhea,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your statement is: You ran out of oil,so got more oil in tank.blead the lines.but now you cant get pilot to start

Every oil burner I ever worked on had a type of spark ignition. No standing pilot. If this is the case for you then the only reason it won't turn on is that the lines weren't properly bled. It only takes a little bubble to ruin the day. Don't be afraid to blead lots of oil, you should be catching it anyway to put back in the tank.

Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,
Harvey your Master Plumber
