Yes,if it has worn the insulation through on one or more of the hot phase conductors to the neutral phase wire,but also check the neutral busbar in the breaker panel for a high resistance connection as this will also trip the main breaker

Outside main 100 amp breaker is tripping but none of the inside breakers, supposedly when dryer and tv on together but not all the time


Am I to assume your dryer is electrical? If so, I'll guarentee it will draw MORE than 14 Amps if heating. Sorry, can't analyze your problem from here.

Qo260gfi not tripping


Question is not fully clear.

2-pole 240Volt gfci circuit breaker requires the white wire be connected to neutral busbar.

Easy solution for 240Volt spa that comes with gfci:
Replace spa gfci with regular non-gfci breaker.
Install 2-pole GFCI breaker in main panel, and connect wire to spa breaker.

Having 2 breakers is not a problem.
Having 2 GFCI on same circuit is a problem.

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!

Why is my main breaker switch getting hot tot he touch?


Sounds like you're pulling to much current (amps), thats whats causing it to heat up. If its too hot to hold your hand to you have a serious prolem!! The breaker should be tripping and if its not it can cause damage to the insulation on the wire, and could cause a fire or other problems... You can get a clamp on amp meter to check the amperage or call an eletrician ASAP

The breaker is getting hot and then tripping. There were some loose wires that were tightened but it is still tripping. The breaker is brand new. It is a main panel breaker on a utility vessel.


Loose connection does cause heat, and the heat may have damaged the breaker. You must use an ammeter to check the amperage drawn on the circuit. If the amperage is well below the breaker rating, then replace the breaker

GFI on cord trips out.


Probable cause is a single pole gfi opposed to a double pole gfi.
* Do not use a single pole GFCI ON A MULTI WIRE CIRCUIT, IT WILL NUISANCE TRIP IMMEDIATELY
Use a two pole GFCI circuit breaker on such circuits.

Ground Fault circuit Breaker trips each time a load is applied


The most likely causes in their order of probability are: 1) water somewhere in the circuit causing the hot wire to ground; 2) a legitimate trip caused by a defect in a device plugged into the circuit; and 3) a defective GFCI breaker. In the first case, wait until it has been dry for about a week and see if it trips. In the second case, make sure there is nothing plugged into the circuit and try resetting. In the third case go ahead and put the regular breaker in, then put a GFCI outlet into the first box downstream from the breaker. If installed according to the directions, that outlet should protect all of the outlets downstream.
