How do I install this ? Do I put 1 black wire and 1 white wire into the breaker and then ground the copper wire in the panel?
Asked by: Frank
It sounds like you are connecting to a 120V load as the white wire would be a neutral conductor. Q220U is a 2 pole breaker and would typically be used to service a 240V load within the home. 120V loads would typically use a 1 pole breaker like Q120U with the neutral connected to the neutral bus. We recommend you contact your electrician for guidance. Our Technical Support team can also assist at 1-800-333-7421.

The description of this 20AMP Double-Pole Siemens circuit breaker says that it accepts wire (CU and AL) up to size 6AWG, but other sites and when you zoom in on the photo seem to say 8AWG wire is maximum. Can someone clarify for sure? I need to connect 6AWG AL wire (from an old 50AMP circuit) to a new 20AMP breaker. Thanks!
Asked by: Tim
Tim, I believe that it would depend on the application of your install. To be safe my recommendation would be to consult a professional electrician or reach out to one of the associates in the electrical department at one of your local Home Depots.

How many come in a carton? -5 or 6? And is there a volume discount?

Asked by: SolarInstaller
There will be 6 circuit breakers in a carton, the same applies for all of our Double-Pole breakers. There is not a volume discount if ordered online. If you have any other questions please let me know!

I discovered I have a rare siemens breaker box in my pole building when I needed to install a double pole breaker. I could not find one anywhere until I checked Home Depot and there it was. I ordered online and they quickly delivered my new breaker and I was in business.
