I'm adding this breaker to my load center. What is the proper amount of torque for the wire connection screws? I found 1 "not so tight" screw on a 20 AMP breaker causing other problems. "tight" isn't the answer. I'm looking for in/lb or ft/lb.
Thanks
Joe

Answer: 
The torque value is posted inside the panel door. 10 lbs/in comes to mind, but the amount of torque should be sufficient to prevent the wire from moving, when wiggled.
Although required by Code, I've never seen anyone use a torque wrench on branch wiring circuit breakers.

Answer: 
For a residential 200-amp service panel, a foot-pound torque wrench may not be required. The highest torque value for a 200-amp service panel usually is around 250 inch-pounds. These connections are for the service-entrance conductor (SEC) terminations with an Allen set screw termination. A foot-pound torque wrench will have the higher ranges needed to achieve values higher than 250 inch-pounds and will Read More

The torque screwdriver is used for the circuit breaker and ground/neutral bus terminations. Smaller service equipment, such as 100 amps with smaller service-entrance conductors, will likely terminate at a smaller mechanical lug with a slotted setscrew. A good rule of thumb to keep in mind is that the torque value for a slotted setscrew is not over 50 inch-pounds. Read Less

Answer: 
TQL is the GE designation for their most common circuit breakers and are readily available at all Home Depot Stores.
The breaker used must match the manufacture of the panel, with the exception of Cutler Hammer (Eaton) Type CL in sizes up to 50A., which may be used with most any panel.

Answer: 
You cannot just replace the 30 amp breaker with a 50 amp breaker without first replacing the circuit with 6-3 NM-B cable. To protect the existing 30 amp circuit with a 50 amp breaker is both a code violation and a fire hazard.

Most all new stove and ovens require a 50 amp breaker with #6 wiring. Even my old range used a 50 amp breaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breaker Aging I was about to completely rebuild a 44 year old water heater. It was tripping the breaker about once a week. I figured that the elements had so much sludge on them that they were not necessarily shorting out but just drawing more current. As I researched the water heater, I found that both elements were allowed to be on a the same time -- equating to about 30.5 amps. ...on a 30 amp breaker. Aha! This is an old water heater, salvaged from my first house. I got to thinking, "how come it has been working for 40 years?" So I looked up the current/time trip curve for this breaker. It should be able to carry 31 amps for about 15 minutes! So I decided that the breaker had gotten weaker with age. (They do that when heavily loaded.) When I replaced the old one, I discovered that it was an ITE, which changed to Gould in 1976 and Siemens in 1986! The breaker must have come from the other house as well! No wonder it was weaker! It was also 44 years old! The moral of the story: don't rule out the basics. $9 & 5 minutes vs. $200 & a long hard day vs. $300-$400 + plumber!
