I have never seen one before I don't think that they have one. I was able at one time to get a zinsco GFCI breaker but even that was difficult and it was used with no returns and very expensive. Sorry

How to find zinsco main breakers?


HomeDepot.com carries Connecticut Electric breakers. They can supply breakers for outdated electrical equipment, including Zinsco (Sylvania), Challenger, ITE push-a-matic, Wadsworth, etc. Prices are high though, it would probably be better to purchase and install a new panel.

Panasonic plasma tripping ARC circuits in brand new home


Hi Amy,

I'm an electrician and have a couple suggestions for a solution to your problem.

My first suggestion is to determine if the problem is with only one AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter) circuit breaker. You should locate an outlet on another circuit in the same or nearby room by shutting off a different AFCI circuit breaker; once identified, power your TV from it (via extension cord, etc.). If the TV stays on, then the issue is specific to the original AFCI breaker the fed your TV. You should have the original AFCI breaker replaced.

Secondly, early AFCI circuit breakers had issues with some devices. If the problem continues to plague the TV, it is still possible that the AFCI breakers installed were not programmed at the factory with the info needed to identify the load from your particular TV as being acceptable. Changing the AFCI with an exact replacement may help this.

Lastly, contacting the TV and / or circuit breaker manufacturer with an explanation of the problem may provide a solution when the suggestions above do not solve the problem.

Now, some words of caution: You should not replace the AFCI breaker with a standard breaker. There is some sort problem on the circuit, that may or may not be attributed to the TV. It's just that the TV is on the circuit that has the problem (you'll know for sure if the tripping AFCI follows the TV when connected to a different circuit). There is a problem that can result in fire, and it needs to be corrected. Substituting a standard breaker doesn't solve the problem, it only masks it and allows it to continue to get worse without giving you an indication that something is very wrong; until it is too late.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Where can I locate a copy of a troubleshooting guide for arc fault problems with your product?


AFCI (arc fault circuit interrupter) devices such as yours rarely have a problem - but a trip indicates there's a problem with the circuit it is supplying. It like a fuse - they generally don't go bad by themselves - but do when there's a problem.

AFCI have the unique ability to detect arcing - or sparking. An arc or spark is very hot - and is a fire hazard. An AFCI can sense this condition before it is even seen - if it were in an exposed place that it could be seen and shuts off power. Arcing can occur at a loose connection, such as in a wirenut, terminal screw, etc. The AFCI can also detect when a cable support staple has been driven to deep and crushed through the cable insulation and is beginning to cause a high resistance short circuit. Because these problems often occur where they can't be seen, it is a labor intensive job to locate and repair the problem. Sometimes, entire sections of circuits must be re-fed due to the location of the fault. Due to the complexity of searching for the fault, you may want to call an electrician to clear the fault for you. You should not under any circumstances replace the AFCI with a standard circuit breaker or GFCI type circuit breaker. You may however, change it with an adjacent AFCI breaker to determine if the issue is with the circuit - or the AFCI. If the AFCI trips on the new circuit, you should accept that it has failed and should be replaced. If the problem stays in the same circuit, then the AFCI is good and the problem is in the circuit somewhere.

Here are a couple links to youtube videos that may help you understand the how and why of AFCI devices: video 1 and video 2. A link back to Siemen's site on AFCI is here.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Can and arc fault circuit interupter be on a grounded neutral panel


Yes, the (coiled) white wire that is permanently attached to the breaker connects to the neutral busbar in the panel and the white wire that goes to the circuit that you want to protect connects to the "white" terminal on the AFCI breaker.

How to install arc fault circuit interrupter


connect the neutral from the circuit to the afci breaker, and run the neutral that came on the afci breaker to the neutral bar in the panel. Make sure that the neutral that you connect from the circuit to the afci breaker is the one that belongs to the circuit that you're protecting or the afci wont work.

I need to install a GFI breaker on a Baptistry.


You could install a standard GFCI in line at each component ( heater, pump & timer) or you could install AFCI breakers similar to what are required in many residential codes (provide the same protection at the panel not at the location... http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PUBS/afcifac8.PDF

The AFCI breakers will need to match your panel type (siemens, GE or Square-D) and the amperage/configuration.

I would install them at the lowest level (closest to the components) in the system to reduce possibility of fire in the wiring between the components and the afci breaker.

Hello: I have an old electrical box with the old style Zinsco beakers. For some reason, the left side of the main 200 amp breaker continues to go out. only one side. the breaker arks right where I screw...


The screw is loose. It is always HOT (has electricity going to it) so be careful. If you feel confident, cover a screwdriver with a few layers of electrical tape and tighten it. Depending on how long it has been arcing, the breaker will need to be replaced. Since the incoming wire will have power to it, have a licensed electrician do the job. He will possibly remove the meter head to cut the power while he does the work.
