The new Eaton Cutler Hammer UL series circuit breakers are made to be interchangeable with panelboards from different manufacturers. If it is a UL series, the answer is yes.

What's the difference between a GE THQL 2150 GFI and a GE THQL GFP breaker


i am not an electrician, but i know they are not interchangeable. i think gfci protect the circuit, and gfp protect equipment.

Bought a Eaton Cutler Hammer Arc Fault 15 amp Single Pole circuit breaker for my old CH20 model Cutler Hammer CB Box (vintage about mid 1960s). CB package says "Use in Type CH" boxes. It...


I used to run into that being a service electrician all the time Smains! These problems can involve a little more legwork to figure out than some. The best advice that I can give you is, if at that age you can still find a part number on the breaker panel (they renamed them load centers to sound fancy lmao), if you can actually fine a legible one. Write it down and go to Eaton's website, then to load center. They have a parts number search that should take you right to your PANEL lol, and all the specs. I'm not there or if do it for you, hope this helps!!!

Can a 240 volt outlet be ran off this breaker and can a 240 volt electric baseboard heater be wired to it or should i use double pole breaker?


You need 240 breaker:
Notice that your 240V breaker is twice as wide as regular 120V breaker.
Notice that both switches are tied together on 240V breaker, making this a double-pole breaker.

Is there another breaker i can use instead of challenger breaker less expensive


A Challenger 20 Amp single pole breaker shouldn't be priced much different than any other brand of breaker if you buy them online and not at Home Depot. That is if it isn't the Zinsco style like these:

According to Eaton's cross reference a BR 120 will cross with a C 120. You can find the cross reference here:

Lowes shows the BR 120 at 3.47

They look like these:

When Working with Household Electricity you want to always keep in mind that the BLACK wire ALWAYS carries DEATH. What I mean by this is that working with a Single Phase Circuit (one that uses 120VAC) the only wire that should be carrying a voltage is the BLACK one, the other 2 wires (typically the White Neutral and Green Ground) should both be electrically connected to Earth Ground (usually by being attached to your water pipe.)

It is also possible that your hot tub may use more than 20 Amps.

Eaton Arc Fault Breaker type BRAF tripped. I reset it but lights will not work. Ideas please?


My arc fault breaker trips in my bedroom when ever a load is put on line. The trunk line comes into a three gang switch box and feeds the entire room. At times I can turn my ceiling fan and light on for 10 to 20 minutes before the breaker trips. Other times the breaker will trip when either switch is first turned on. I plugged a 4 watt night light in a wall receptical, without the ceiling light or fan on, it also trips the breaker. I have had other plug in lamps, 60 watt, work in other recepticals for a while. The problem seems to appear in all recepticals and lighting in the room.

CAN A EHD1020 CIRCUIT BREAKER (CUTLER HAMMER) BE USED IN A 120/240 APPLICATION? BREAKER IS IN A SFDN100 ENCLOSURE (CUTLER HAMMER)


For 240 if it is a single pole breaker then no. You need a double pole breaker or 2 single breakers , one above the other, connect the red wire to one and the black wire to the other. this way you are drawing from both legs. hope this helps you...
