Re: Double Breaker
Some panels DO have restrictions on just where in the panel the double breakers can be placed. Look at the panel manufacturer's label, this will tell you what "type" of breakers can be placed in each space.
The "type" is usually a one or two letter code, and it should also be labeled on the breaker.
In some cases, you can physically install breakers of a different type than is specified, but you would be stepping outside the ratings of the UL listing and your electrical inspector may not appreciate that.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
