Product Overview

Murray offers a wide array of thermal-magnetic circuit breakers that are the key element for overload and short-circuit protection of your home's electrical system. To provide additional protection Murray offers circuit breakers to protect against severe electrical shock or electrocution, mitigate the risk of electrical fires and protect against damaging surges and Voltage spikes. Circuit breakers are intended for switching and protection of your home's wiring from high temperatures caused by excess current higher than the rating of the wire.

The breaker easily fit my Murray breaker panel inside my mid-1960's house and, after rewiring the circuit with #10 wire, is able to deliver 30 amps of power to my water heater outlet. I'm now ready to replace my water heater with a 4,500 watt model.

The existing breaker panel was built by Crouse-Hinds. In the past Crouse-Hinds purchased Murray and the breaker configuration is the same for both. To further support this, the UL Breaker Interchange chart shows Murray breakers are a direct interchange with Crouse-Hinds.
