Customer Questions & Answers

Suitable for electric range circuit?

My electrician is trying to be very careful with this. He and I are trying to determine if this gfci breaker if suitable for replacement of a conventional GE 50 amp breaker for use in the circuit going to the electric range. The reason we are considering a gfci breaker is due to the bathtub being directly behind the wall where the 220V outlet is mounted on the baseboard of the kitchen wall for the electric range. In other words, there is nothing between the fiberglass bathtub and the back side of the 220V outlet except a few inches of air, without any kind of shielding or waterproofing. So, the basic question is: Is this GE 50 amp gfci breaker suitable for use in the panel for the cicuit going to an electric range? I think he's concerned about robustness and reliability, and probably if it would trip the gfci unnecessarily in this application. We realize we'll have to determine whether it actually fits the panel or not. I believe he said it's a Federal Pacific panel.
Asked by: Randy
First off, your electrician should be more concerned by a federal pacific panel. Major red flag. Second, even if a federal pacific panel was not an fire hazard, you void and warranty/manufacturer liability by installing a breaker by a different manufacturer. Insurance companies will often refuse to payout on electrical fire claims for this violation and may even go after the electrical contractor who did the work. Thirdly, there are plenty of similar situations where a bathroom or half bath is sharing a wall with a kitchen. Given his logic, every room with a recessed receptacle in a shared bathroom wall should be GFCI protected, such as bed rooms and hallways. Not code required. If your truly concerned by the open void, pull the range, install a piece of greenboard sheetrock and surface mount the range receptacle. Bottom line- it may fit the panel but it's not code legal. It will function correctly if it would fit- but is not necessary, and you run the risk of arcing and possible electrical fire because it was not designed to fit any panel other than GE.

How to Install a GFI Circuit Breaker

Purchased a GE 50 Amp 2-1/4 in. Double-Pole GFCI Circuit Breaker to switch out with my existing 50 amp breaker. The package did not have any installation instructions which is what I asking for.

2 120v hots-black, 1 neutral-white and 1 ground-green. The neutral and ground go to the same bar in panel. Turn off the main breaker before you start!

Dear Valued Home Depot Customer, We reached out to the MFG for more information and find their response below. "We recommend using GE breakers in GE load centers. Using them with other brands or vice versa will void any warranty should failure occur."

50 Amp 2-1/4 in. Double-Pole GFCI Circuit Breaker is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. Product works great in my GE box. Shipping time was good too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dubious quality I had one of these fail after 3 years in a Midwest spa panel. This GE breaker comes preinstalled in that panel which costs less than the breaker by itself. I bought another panel kit and pulled the breaker out of it. If it fails again I will have to go with another brand even though it will cost more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as it should. Seems to be less sensitive to false tripping in high humidity where the competitors product would annoyingly trip quite frequently after a steamy rainfall or foggy morning.
