On this particular breaker there is a several ceiling fans and outlet strips that were not on there before and I think it is putting a strain on the 20 causing it trip? Going to a larger amperage be a good idea?

Hi GilSandoval,

The duty of a circuit breaker is to protect the wiring in your home or business from becoming overloaded. DO NOT place a breaker of additional amp rating on wire that is never intended to withstand such amperage.
Separate the excessive load by dispersing the power demand over additional circuits, not by changing the breaker.
Too much demand on a limited circuit will cause excessive heat along the supply wiring, thus creating the likelihood of a fire.
Going to a larger amperage is NOT a good idea.
Thank you for asking,

3. take a flat blade screwdriver and turn the screw(s# holding the wire#s) in place a 1/4 to 1/2 a turn just enough to slide the wire out of the breaker.
to install just reverse removal.

Answer: 
Hello Money, I’m Newf from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.
After switching off the circuit breaker, you simply pull out the center end by the “on” label and the breaker pivots out from the back latch.
I hope this helps,
Newf.

I need to replace a GE breaker which is a single pole. The only thing that appears as a model number is RV 2242. Is a GE THQL 1120 the correct breaker to replace it with?

Answer: 
Hi Hunter, I reached out to G.E. technical folks, who searched their data bases and did not find a circuit breaker with RV 2242 as a model. The circuit breaker THQL should only be used in a G.E. load center. You will have to bring the circuit breaker into the store to see if we can match what breaker you have.
