Question about Heating & Cooling
Breaker heats up ,both elements ok,using lots of electricty,30 amp breaker,10/2 wire
Typical H2O heater with 4500 watt elements should draw around 18 amps. Check to make sure the connections for the wires at the breaker are tight, loose connections will cause the breaker to heat up. If all of this is good and the breaker is still heating up, it is time for a new breaker.
