What size circuit breaker is required?

Asked by: jj
3800 / 240 = 15.83a, so use a dual 20a breaker.

Breaker and Wire Size There is an old question on this topic, but the answers conflict. The 1st set of answers say 3800w/240 volts would be 16amp requirement. The second set says 7600w/240 would be 31amps (7600 is the combined output of the 2 3800w elements). Can an electrician or rheem clarify which is accurate and explain? Thank you.
Asked by: Jerome
Disclaimer: I'm not an electrician, and I have no particular credentials to speak on this issue. I just tinker around the house and read stuff when I want to learn. For what it may or may not be worth: Something that should be understood is that the breaker amperage must be selected to protect the wire that runs from the panel to the unit. The "instructions/assembly" guide is probably worth following. The answers provided here by readers refer to normal operation, of course. The breaker's function is for abnormal conditions. If the unit malfunctions and tries to draw too much power, the mismatch of either an undersized wire or an oversized breaker can cause big trouble (ah, perhaps a fire?). Just a few thoughts...

Rheem Performance 38 Gal. Short 6 Year 3800/3800-Watt Elements Electric Tank Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1152.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected. Works as expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I needed a 30 gallon but could not find one... I needed a 30 gallon but could not find one with an 18 inch width or less to fit in the space for it. I had to get the 20 gallon tank which is not really big enough. The water does not get hot enough or last long enough. I'm very disappointed that there is not a size to fit my needs.
