The THQP breakers can only be installed in the area that accepts the 1/2” frame “tandem” breaker. In some load centers, it could be every space. In the case of your panel, that would be in the lower 1/3 of the panel. Thank you for your question.

Asked by Clay October 16, 2020

Answer

Your panel needs to support 1/2" breakers for the THQP220, not all panels support these, but most have at least eight 1/2" locations, usually at the bottom of the panel. Take a look at the GE PowerMark Gold 200 Amp 32-Space 40-Circuit Main Breaker Indoor Load Center. Think of two adjacent full breaker locations that support four 1/2" breakers, the THQP220 breaker will use the two center locations and pick power form each power leg. The two outer 1/2" locations will be open and be available for two single 1/2" breakers. Take a look at the third customer image, see how the breaker fits into positions 28 and 30, positions 26 and 32 must then use a 1/2" breaker. The THQL2120 breaker will need two adjacent full breaker locations, which can actually be four of the adjacent 1/2" breaker locations.

How many 1500 watt electric baseboard heaters can I attach to this breaker.

Answer

Based on the math 1500 W / 120 V the amperage required would be 12 1/2 amps per unit. Please check with your local electrician for more details.

can this breaker be used two split 220v to 110

Asked by CB August 23, 2020

Answer

You can check with your local electrician who is familiar with your local code but I would recommend purchasing 2 - THQP120 breakers and putting them side by side allowing for individual operation.

I have a 100 amp GE breaker box. When you engage the main power the bus bar gets 220 and you can not use a 120 breaker.

The product worked in my older (early 90s era) GE load center panel. We installed a 15,000 btu mini-split system that needed a 240v 15a breaker. Lots of 120v 15a breakers, and 20a and 30a 240v breakers in the store, but not the 240v 15a. Was forced to order it online, and wait 5 days for it to be shipped from GE to the store. The breaker itself works fine, and was not a problem to install. Typical GE quality and the competitive price.
