What grade of wire should I run for 50 gallon electric hot water heater 20 amps from the panel box

Asked by Ed November 1, 2020

Answers

Minimum requirement for a 240 volt water heater is 30 amps. That would require a 10/2 romex with ground. Your circuit breaker size should also be a double pole 30 amp.

My CH breaker can no longer be reset and is fused to the bus bar connection. How would I get warnty rplcmnt?

Asked by Fitznog September 13, 2020

Answers

First of all, Home Depot is a retail store. Your CH series loadcenter and breaker are both covered by a lifetime warranty. You need to contact Eaton directly about your issue and follow their instructions which I am sure will involve having a licensed electrical contractor replace the CH series loadcenter with a new CH series loadcenter and breakers obtained through an Eaton/Cutler-Hammer distributor. The distributor will probably take the old loadcenter with breaker fused to the bus and issue credit for the replacement parts. It's crucial you start by contacting Eaton or an Eaton distributor to start the process. You should ask about labor as well. As far as I know the parts are warranted, but I suspect you will have to pay for labor.

The Eaton breakers all have mystery designations of BD, BR, CH or CL. What do these mean?

Asked by BigSmiler January 18, 2020
5
Answers

These refer to the panel series designation. Eaton makes replacement breakers for many series of panel. Be sure to match the breaker type to your specif panel series. The series of your panel should be inside the breaker cover door.

Easy to use and understand this product, because the breaker itself always tell you as an electrician what's wrong with it tripintron and off. One way is the melting electrical grease on the switch itself.
