Product Overview

Siemens 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 Siemens 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. While thermal-magnetic circuit breakers are the key element for overload and short-circuit protection of your electrical system, there are potentially dangerous conditions that do not involve over current.

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

    Used a smidge of dielectric grease to press it on to the bus bars and torqued the connections, works perfectly (bad compressor tripped it instantaneously)!

    Siemens breaker replaces Eaton BR230 breaker.
    This breaker replaced an Eaton BR230 breaker. I replaced 2 faulty BR230 breakers in a year. The Siemens breaker is identical to the BR230, hopefully it will last.
