Question about Siemens Main Breaker Load Center 200 Amps

1 Answer

Siemens main breaker won't shut off. It's a 200 amp breaker. When I throw to the off position, andeven if I hold it there, it just springs back to the on position. The lights in the house of course remain on.

The breaker needs to be replaced, sometimes you could take the back of a screwdriver and tap the front of the breaker and that may help release the mechanism but more than likely you will have to replace

200 amp


I am pretty sure you would have to order that breaker to get it. if its 200 amp panel it will hold 200 amps. why do you think u would have to derate it for the solar panels. they do not create any electric load as I would think they would actually feed power into the panel and feed it back to the power grid. that would in itself lighten the load on the 200 amp main. I am going to sign up for the mobile app thing. as soon as I read up on it and will be able to discuss this more as u wish and offer assistance if need be.


have a great day and good luck

Main breakers keeps blowing what is the reason i had the electrical company check there stuff up to the house said everything was ok no smaller breakers are blowing just the 200 main is it possible i did...


Add up all the amps from active breakers. Do they add up over 200? If not, then I suspect a bad main breaker. If they do, then you need a larger service box and or main breaker.

Main breaker tripping


get acceess or rent an amp clamp meter with a "max hold" and clamp it on each line wire coming into the box (if you're not experienced in this hire an electrician being tht it can kill you if not done correctly and safely) when it blows check amps to each "leg" and see if it is over 200 amps. if it is under, the main breaker should be replaced . If it is over, clamp it on the "hot" side of each
circuit that you suspect may be pulling too much. If this all comes out ok, have the main service connections to the main breaker checked for being tight. This is a last resort, but I'
ve seen them heat up from being loose and then throw the main. The over all amps could be pulling too much, but it takes alot of things running at the same time to throw a 200 amp main.

Goodd luck!

My 200 amp Siemens main electric box is heating


This is a dangerous situation! There is a short in the furnace. It is NOT a breaker problem! You need to check the current draw in the furnace circuit, This requires an Amprobe meter. If you don't have one, contact a technician at once! You have a fire hazard!
