Hello dana... No lock. A large breaker does require quite a bit of force to go from on to off. That said, having a breaker that is not working properly could be a serious issue. Please replace that breaker or call in an electrician as soon as possible. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

I have a 440v 50 amp and a 220v 30amp main breaker box outside my house. the 440 goez to the inside of the house and i have to unplug the 440 and plug in myown 440 plug i connected to another breaker box...


Some of these numbers don't make sense?
I have Never heard of 440v and 220v in a residential application, they are two different systems, 480 volt is typically 3 phase power, and 240v is typically single phase, more in likely you have a 200- 400 amp main service, and a 100- 200 amp secondary service for the welder, that can't be 110 @ 200 amps?
I would need more info, and pictures of actual nameplates of the equipment,
and then I could advise a safe NEC electrical code answer...

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

Rheem Rudd G91-200 will not start. After waiting 10 minutes, it does fire up for about 2 minutes, then it locks out. Bad gas valve?


ive never seen one of these water heaters but most gas apps have a thermo-couple which the ignition flame needs to heat the top of.if the ignition flame is missing the top of this the main gas valve will shut off.it may just be a bit of dirt in the flame director.which aims gas at the couple and main gas burner.hope ive helped.good luck

Crouse - Hines Murry Style MP or MD 200 Amp Main Breaker Difficult to Reset


A 200 amp circuit breaker has a large spring to assist in rapid opening and closing a load of this size to minimize damaging arcing every time is it operated under electrical load

The larger the circuit breaker is and the more poles (1, 2 or 3) that are being opened / closed; the more force it will require to operate - both by hand or when tripping. Compare the tension or force you need to apply to a similar sized circuit breaker at Home Depot, etc.

The troubling issue about this for me is the fact that the 200 amp service disconnect / main is tripping. This is an indication of an overloaded panel / circuit. I usually see individual circuits that trip in a panel - but often find the that main breaker has only 20% - 60% of its rating on it at any given time. If you're tripping a 200 amp service disconnect / main breaker repeatedly - something has got to give - and eventually the circuit breaker will fail. That may be where you are now with this breaker. You may be in need of a service upgrade (if it is the service disconnect) as clearly, you have out grown the 200 amp size one you currently have or need add a new sub-panel to ease the load that this 200 amp main is trying to supply now.

Either way, you should call a reputable electrical contractor to have your service / sub-panel evaluated very soon. Good luck!

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...


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

I have a 200 amp service panel i have a 100amp


Theres a few different ways to set up the secondary panel. The most efficient way, in my opinion, would be to set it up as a subsidiary. This is a really great way to allow power to be shut off for sections of a house instead of killing everything. This requires wiring it to the main panel on a breaker which will serve as the main for the 100amp subsidiary. Obviously this will require that a comparable breaker be installed in the main 200 amp panel to support the new subsidiary 100 amp panel.
Here's where it gets tricky and you really should either consult or contract a licensed technician. Because the amperage rating does not dictate the amount of power that is supplied to your house on the primary line you are essentially using the new box as a splitter. The danger in this is that just like any common electrical outlet, the more stuff you plug into it the more likely you are to overload the circuit and risk catastrophic failure, like a house burning to the ground or worse.
Knowing that your panel is side by side, you should be fine with #2 AWG, I would confirm electrical code before installing and ensure that grounds are diverted to the main panel to avoid the risk of running live current through the otherwise 'safe' ground.
If you are installing the panel to increase the amount of breakers it is probably safe to assume that there has been some previous work done that fills up the main panel. I would strongly encourage you to talk to an electrician about your needs and the changes in your house that require the additional breaker slots. There is a certain amount of artistry involved in 'designing' the house and you could probably accomplish the same end result with one panel and a more efficient wiring plan.

Replace 200 amp breaker


If this is the Service Disconnect Switch or Main Switch for the panel, this job should probably left for an electrician to perform, as power should be shut off at the meter socket or at the roadside first. If this is not done, the work will be "hot".

Unlike most circuit breakers in electrical panels, Service Disconnect Switches and Main Switches have the power brought to the panel by entering terminal screws. Shutting the Main or Service Disconnect breaker off prevents the flow of current *into* the panel and other circuit breakers. The large wires that are connected to the terminal screws are LIVE, and will remain so until shut off *upstream*.

Working in a panel with two large diameter cables that do not move easily is a hazard and should not be done unless you are very familiar with this work - and of course, have shut the power off.

Please, reconsider doing this work yourself.

Bought wrong panel


no, not to code plus the expense would not justify , you can purchase the 200 amp panel with the main already installed cheaper than purchasing the 200 amp breaker in most cases and still meet the code check on a panel package called a home owners kit ge makes one square d , makes one either good quality , you get the 200 amp panel, several breakers such as 20 amp 50 amp 30 amp by far the best route for you
