Q:Can you a 30 amp breaker for a 30inch induction cooktop
by|Jul 21, 2021
3 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  No you can't, without answering all three of these questions. #1- Are you putting this GE breaker in a GE panel, you can't mix manufacture's equipment, GE goes with GE, Square D goes with Square D, etc. Just because a breaker fits in a panel doesn't make it right, the different manufacturers typically only test their own equipment, so if you mix manufacturers equipment it is not tested and not "UL" listed. #2- What size wire are you putting it on, the wire needs to be a minimum wire size #10 AWG copper, or # 8 AWG stranded aluminum, it can be bigger but not smaller, for a 30 amp circuit. #3- What size circuit does the cook top manufacturer recommend for the cook top, you have to go by the equipment manufacturer's recommendation, for circuit size.

    A:  The question is not clear as to why a 30A breaker is needed and no other parameters to electrically review. Sorry

    Q:will this replace a ge 2 pole 60 amp breaker
    by|Jul 10, 2021

    Answer This Question

    A:  First - consult an electrician. Second, it will physically fit in the same space as a GE 2 Pole 60 amp breaker. BUT. if my understanding of electricity and breakers is correct, it will not trip when/ if your amperage exceeds 60 amps like a 60 amp breaker would and that would be a serious safety hazard. I have used a 20 amp in place of a 15 amp breaker before and didn’t have any issues; I’d be real careful using a 100 where irs designed for a 60.

    by|Jul 11, 2021

      A:  It will take the same space as a 60 amp 2 pole breaker However if the wire is not sized for a 100 amp breaker and only a 60 amp it is not up to code. 100 amp requires a # 4 wire size. 60 amp is a #6 wire size. #4 is larger than #6 GOT IT!

        Answer This Question

        A:  GE does make half space breakers, but not all GE panels accept them, the panel has to be specifically manufactured to except half space breakers and specifically in certain areas of the panel, if you look at the drawing on the inside of the door of the panel, it will show you if and where they can be installed.

          A:  Yes, it comes in a slim or mini breaker. However it will only fit in panels that are rated for it.

              A:  This question is a little confusing. A three phase breaker would have three poles, not two. If you are using this for a 240volt residential type dryer or water heater then this will work.

                    Q:So my panel say only use THQL but this one is THQL2130 will it still work I can’t find it anywhere

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  Yes, THQL is the series type. The 2130 indicates this is a 2 pole 30 amp breaker. As a THQL115 would be a single pole 15 amp type.

                    by|Mar 20, 2021

                      A:  Uhhhhh....I split a big 50amp wire into two circuits for two outlets for a 50amp welder and a 30amp compressor-they aren't used at the same time. I got the load center panel at the Home Depot and right next to it I got the fat double 30amp breaker and a fat double 50amp breaker both made by GE. Everything fits and works fine-I love it. I don't understand panel speak-I wired it up all pretty and got the accessory ground bar. I didn't sink or bind the extra ground screw to the panel box because the big 50amp wire I split came from a grounded main panel. I set my panel up like a load center-which is what I got from GE.

                      by|Mar 13, 2021

                        A:  This is the proper 2 pole 30A breaker for this panel. Thanks for the question.

                        by|Mar 13, 2021

                        A:  Yes it will work, THQL is a breaker type that fits a specific Circuit Breaker Box (GE uses this as their generic Breaker Box). It has a certain type of connectors on the breaker to clamp on to the fittings in the Box itself. There are 2 rows of breaker connections, one for each side of the 240 Volt AC Buss. The '2130' following the THQL designates a particular type of breaker for a specific use. The 2130 is a dual breaker (for 240 Volt use) and both parts/sides of the dual breaker are rated at 30 Amps. This is a typical breaker used for Dryers, Water Heaters, and any 240 Volt 30 Amp load AC item that has heater or light bulb and Coil Heater types of loads. There several types of Breaker types, this one is a 'Resistive' Load Breaker. TURN OFF YOUR MAIN POWER BEFORE OPENING UP THE BREAKER BOX TO INSERT ANY NEW BREAKERS OR CONNECT THEM TO WIRES! IF YOU DO NOT YOU MAY GET SHOCKED AND COULD BE KILLED!
