You have a double pole breaker for 240Volt supply. The maximum current is 15 amp.
It's the amps that are controlled by the breaker not the volts. You can have a 600 volt 15 amp breaker, you can have a 347 volt 15 amp breaker. The breaker will trip when you exceed 15 AMPS.
Depending on what circuit breaker is purchased, depends on what amp the built in circuit break is.
A 20 amp circuit with #12 gauge wire will work in any event but if the nameplate recommends a 15 amp circuit then #14 gauge wire on a 15 amp circuit is sufficient. In either case you will have a double pole breaker and your equipment may not require a neutral. Always run a grounding conductor.
Yes, the 15 amp breaker can have "20 Amp" (12 Ga.) wire run from it, but it would be a waste of money as 14 Ga. wire is less expensive.
No, it is a 30 amp breaker on each side. Remove it and install a 15 amp single pole breaker.
50 watt equals less than 1/2 amp current flow at 120 volts so you can have 30 light on a 15amp breaker or 40 on a twenty amp breaker.
No, a double pole 50 amp breaker protects a 240 volt supply at 50 amps. The number that is on the handle of the breaker is the amperage that the breaker will trip at if an overload occurs on the circuit.
Just change the breaker on the 30 amp circuit to a 20 amp breaker.
The minimum size wire a 20 amp breaker needs to be connected to is a #12 wire. The 15 is probably connected to a #14 right now which is only rated for 15 amps. Remember the breaker is sized to the wires ampacity not the load .
Yes as long as you change the 50 amp breaker to a 15 amp breaker. You will be hard pressed to get the 50 amp #6 wire under the terminals of the 15 amp receptacle.
If the 12,000 BTU A/C only requires 20 amps to run then yes you can use the same 12 gauge wire but you cannot change it to a 15 amp breaker. You will need to install a 20 amp double pole breaker. If it requires more than 20 amps you will have to replace the wiring and breaker.
Of course you can. What you can't do is the opposite as in run a 20amp device on a 15amp circuit since it would draw to much current and trip the breaker.
No, you will need to use 10 gauge wire or change the breaker to a 20 amp breaker.
Eight gauge wire should be used to sufficently carry current for a 15 amp circuit.
Usually a double pole 30 amp breaker for and electric dryer.
I don't understand the question, but if you want to make the line into a 20amp instead of 15amp, you just install a 20amp breaker, but remember,the wire must be 12ga wire to be connected to a 20amp breaker.
Technically, they can be on a 15 amp breaker when you use 15 amp outlets. There is a difference. Be sure to check your local code (just call the city building department and tell them you have a code question). some cities require the bedroom outlets to be on an arc-fault breaker.
R=E/I. R = 120volts / 15 amps = 8. A load of 8 ohms or less will trip a 15 amp breaker.
No, it is only used for 15 Amps at 240 Volts. If you need 30 Amps at 240 Volts, use a 30 amp double pole breaker.
The only way you can change a 15 amp to a 20 is you have to replace the 14 gauge wire going to it with a 12 gauge wire, then replace the 15 amp breaker with a 20 amp breaker. You can put a 15 amp outlet on a 20 amp circuit as long as there is more then one receptacle. A double receptacle counts as two receptacles. Steve Green Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
You need to look at the rating on the fans to see how much current they draw including lighting. Add up the currents and stay below 16 amps for the 20 amp breaker and below 12 amps for the 15 amp breaker. If all fans were to start at the same time the excess starting currents could trip the breaker.
