Customer Questions & Answers

How do you wire this breaker w/GFI

Both poles plug into the Square D buss = ok There are 2 screws for the 2 hot lines on front of breaker = ok. This breaker has an extra wire coming out of the bottom of one of the 2 poles. How do you wire it? Is it a ground wire? How do you wire the ground (3rd wire in 240 volt #6 wire combo/green wire) coming from the under sink water heater? Do you connect it to the wire coming out of the left side of the circuit breaker i.e. the ground wire coming from the water heater? Are there any other grounding issues/considerations? Is this ground setup any more sensitive than just connecting the ground wire from the under sink water heater to all the other grounding wires in the electrical box with a non-gfi breaker?
Asked by: bill
It is recommended that qualified licensed electrician install and wire to ensure local code requirements are met. For discussion, please contact our Technical Support group at 1-888-778-2733, option 1.

Is this gfi breaker interchangeable with a GE breaker?

This breaker is going into a GE 200 amp electrical panel. Will it work? Is Homeline interchangeable with a GE breaker? Thanks!
Asked by: JJSJ
No! Use Homeline branch circuit breakers in Homeline load centers only.

Can this be installed in an outdoor breaker box?

My box is outside. Will this work for a spa hookup? If the spa is the only thing on this breaker, will it keep tripping since these are sensitive?
Asked by: anny
It will work for a spa hookup if it calls for a 40 amp double pole hookup. Additionally, you will need to make sure that this Homeline Square D breaker will fit into your breaker panel to ensure it will fit safely. As for it being 'sensitive', this GFCI breaker, when installed correctly, will work when it detects water on the circuit, causing it to trip. So it's really not sensitive, in so much as its doing its job properly. Joseph

Customer Reviews

Homeline 40 Amp 2-Pole GFCI Circuit Breaker is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice breaker Nice breaker. Pigtail was long enough to go to the neutral buss bar without adding more wire. As with any GFCI part it is sensitive to how everything is wired. A bit pricey but what can you do. I would purchase again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best price I could find. It's a ground fault breaker. It either works or it doesn't. So far, this one works. The Home Depot version had best price.
