Answer

Our apologies. The listed #14-6 AWG wire range is an error. The correct range is #14-8 AWG as listed on the breaker label.

Asked by PatUrbani December 4, 2020

Answer

We would need the part number of the Westinghouse breaker to determine if Siemens would have a similar breaker that could be used in place of the existing.  Once you have the breaker part number, please contact Siemens Customer Support with your request via an email to productselection.us@siemens.com or by calling our Customer Support Center at 1-866-663-7324 for further assistance. It would also be helpful to understand what the breaker itself is mounted in. Any pictures you could provide with your request would be appreciated.

Is this 240-Volt?

Asked by Mark October 17, 2020
1
Answer

What information are you seeking? If you're trying to find out if Siemens breakers will fit in Murray panels, the answer is Yes they will. Siemens owns Murray products which are no longer available so any replacement parts will be branded, Siemens.

Is this breaker two different 15 amp breakers? Meaning for each switch? I have a 15amp breaker that allows me to switch one off and keep the other on?

Simens/Sparky.. I went into the Home Depot and this particular breaker is not mine and I asked the retired licensed electrician on site.. He said that is the bottom half does not have wire attached, I can use it.. I checked and there is nothing connected. When I switch it of course, no impact because nothing is connected. It doesn't affect the top connection either.

What is the terminal rating of this breaker. It says AL-Cu 75C wire, that means wire should be 75...

Asked by Designer September 24, 2020
1
Answer

The terminal rating is based on the conductor which would be 75C. 60C or 75C wire can be used and sized per NEC Table 310.15(B)(16). 90C wire can be used but must be sized for 75C ampacity per the same table.

I was installing breaker and the plastic clips broke now it won't stay , it falls off because it has nothing to attached

Asked by Kaseway July 28, 2020
1
Answer

If the plastic hook rail of the load center is broken replacement of the complete interior is required, or perhaps even the load center itself depending on availability. Please send a request to productselection.us@siemens.com with your load center catalog number from the label to check availability. If the plastic housing of the breaker is broken the breaker must be replaced.

Answer

Q230U is listed to accept #14 to #6 wire as shown on breaker label. Please confirm your label lists the same and contact our Technical Support Line at 1-800-333-7421. There may be another issue.

Are Siemens breakers compatible with Crouse-hinds breakers

Asked by Salsaman November 25, 2019
1
Answer

There is no UL letter to support the use of Siemens labeled breakers in legacy Crouse-Hinds load centers. There is a UL letter authorizing Murray-labeled breakers. Consider MP250 instead. For a copy of the letter please send a request to productselection.us@siemens.com.

Description says "Accepts #14-6 AWG Cu or #14-6 AWG Al wire" Will it also accept 12-3 wire?

Perfect fit. We moved a mobile home office to a different location, inside our plant area. At the old location the power supply for the A/C condenser unit was on the power pole for the mobile home. The new location required us to run a 460 v. 3 phase power to the side of the mobile home to a step down 240v/120v. transformer, then wire the power supply to the breaker box in the mobile home. We had to match the breakers in the Siemens box with a Siemens breaker. Easy installation and working well.

Response from SIEMENS Product ExpertJul 13, 2018
Hello Ray,
This has more to do with a shipping error (which can happen sometimes) rather than actual product quality. You can contact the Home Depot store you purchased the breaker from and they will help with a replacement. SIEMENS
