SOURCE: how to determine electrical power panel load capacity

The total panel ampacity should be rated first by your load, then by the main breaker. if you are feeding it out of another box, it will probably be a double 100amp. In that case you will probably use 100amp SER cable.

How do i add a second switch to my rc8233r?

I would try Ebay first (or search the net for availability and prices). I bought CR2032 3V Button Cell (that are used in my Carlon door chime buttons) batteries. I got 10 for under $5. Carlon (Thomas & Betts) still makes a variety of door chimes and accessories. However, on their site, the prices are atrocious. But, I think that Thomas & Betts deals in bulk (as in dealing with retailers). Because they list their items in bulk price form. I personally have 5 T&B wireless door chimes. Hence, 4 of the buttons are in storage. Out of curiosity, I tried all of them. All 4 extra buttons rang all the door chimes. Caution, on the packages of the door "chimes" I purchased. There's a blurb on there that states the wireless buttons for the "door chimes" will not work with the "doorbells". If you have the packaging for the one you have. It will explain. I'm not positive, but it seems the variance is due to whether you use battery or electric powered models. Hope I was of assistance...Greg

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.

Since a new meter was fitted my lights keep tripping

1) Understand electric service:

2) Do a heat test on breakers and outlets and switches, than a stress test on main breaker box.

3) Check that wire size and breaker size match

4) Break new meter with hammer and they will replace with another new meter made in China, intended to put local workers out of a job, so we can pay for automated meter reading requiring software owned by foreign investors charging at least 25 cents per month per customer to read the meter, using workers located somewhere else, which doesn't include cost of necessary towers and maintenance, or include software upgrades, or include needed security upgrades. Oh, but you will be able to pay additional monthly fee to get static snapshots of power usage at 15 minute intervals, and the switch controlling your power will be located somewhere besides your town.

I am looking to purchase additional T&B breakers. I need type TBBR2020 SWD double pole 20's and 15's. Where can I find them (I think they stopped making them about 10 yrs ago...) ??

i will double check my supplier to see if they actually stopped making them but even if they did almost all breakers will interchange with other brands like a siemens and a ge will interchange etc. any electrical supply store should be able to cross reference your model number to one that will work

What is the approved listed replacement circuit breaker for a T&B panel type TB breakers?

The last post on this page contains a list of T&B compatible breakers:

That said, T&B breakers are still available but they're not the easiest to find. If you go to a true electrician's supply house and ask they'll either have them or be able to refer you to somebody that does.

Good luck!

You will neeed an AMP meter.

Take the face cover off the breaker box.
Very carefully, without touching any wires and frying yourself check the amperage on the wires (one at a time) coming off the breaker to the dryer. (While its running with a load of wet clothes)

If the amp draw is very close to the amp rating of the breaker (IE 30 AMP breaker dryer drawing 28.5 AMPs) then you likely have an issue with the dryer and s the amp draw fluctiates a little it pops the breaker.
Several things can cause this. Motor windings going bad, elements going bad, dryer in need of a thourough cleaning etc.

There could also be a short to ground with one component/switch that is only energised during certain cyles. Keep note of when it trips the breaker. If you notice a pattern, that will help determine the problem.

If none of this applies, and the breaker is just poping randomly without having an amp draw higher than its rating, then you have a bad breaker.

If you have no amp meter. You could try replacing the breaker.(With the same rating, DO NOT go higher unless you want a really big bonfire.)

Most breakers are less than 20 bucks.

Thats an easy job, and if will help you isolate the problem by knowing if it's the dryer or breaker.
Otherwise you must either have a good Volt/OHM/Amp meter to trace down the problem.
