Check where the main power wires come in to see if is has been properly sealed. Moisture may have found its way in through the opening and caused the problem. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 20 AMP Cutler Hammer CH GFI wont fit in the breaker box

It will fit, the extra bump out on the back makes it a bit harder to hook the back locking tab before you push it on the bussing. Also, make sure no wires are in the way obstructing the bump out since it hangs out further than the standard breakers. The most common problem is the bump out making it hard to hook the locking tab onto the outer rail. Make sure the breaker is in the off position, then try holding it more flat as you insert it keeping it close to the bussing. This will help keep the extra bump out from obstructing the locking tab from hooking the back rail. Once it's hooked on the back rail you can push it on the bussing like normal.

SOURCE: can i use murray in a cutler hammer

You should only use a breaker that is listed for use with your panel. Use of a breaker that is not either listed or classified for use in the panel is a code violation. Check the breaker to see if it will fit your panel (probably not) Murry is now Siemens I believe, and Cuttler Hammer is Eaton. There was a Murry-Cuttler Hammer-Challenger connection for awhile, but just because it fits doesn't mean it's ok.

THere is no electricity in the bedrooms and I can't get them back on?


If the circuit breaker will not reset - all the way off and then back on with a click sound. Then something you have plugged into the outlets in those rooms is probably shorted causing an over current condition. If the circuit breaker won't reset, shut off all lights and then unplug EVERYTHING and then see if it will reset. If it does, then replug everything one at a time until the electricity goes off again, that is the bad apple.But if it won't reset, then your breaker is probably bad. Yes, they do go bad, just infrequently.

Cutler Hammer 20 Arc Fault breaker for bedroom outlets will not reset after activating test switch.


The circuit breaker must be turned to the "off" position first from the middle position, and then to the "on" position. The cutler hammer arc breakers carry a lifetime warranty so if it will not reset you may want to contact the manufacture.

Breaker malfunction- Breaker won't restore power to the circuit


To do this safely you should call an electrician. No way I can give you complete instructions that will be sure to be safe because I can't see exactly what the situation is that you have. But the basic steps include: turning off the main, understanding that you are about to expose the feed lugs TO the main which are still LIVE (and giving them a wide berth!), carefully removing the cover, CONFIRMING that everything else in the box is NOT LIVE (use a non-contact voltage detector - $15 or less), removing the wire from the old breaker, pulling the old breaker out, plugging the new breaker in, connecting the wire to the new breaker (nice and tight), replacing the cover and then turning the main back on.

How to reset Cutler Hammer 1 pole 15 Amp


Turn handle to off position and then back on. Same as any other breaker. The red test button can be pressed which will trip breaker. If it trips immediately,unplug all devices on circuit and try to reset. Reconnect each device and see which trips breaker. If this goes to outdoor receptacle, check behind cover for moisture.

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...
