This circuit breaker is available new for under $5.00. It is best to replace any circuit breakers with the same manufacture so it will pass code.

If this site allows direct contact, I will be happy to assist you. Your circuit breaker is not a problem to get.
If you need any information about any type of breaker, I probably know the answer
Thanks for filling out your profile. But if you are here to sell or market any product you need to contact the admin. @Cricket

You cannot upload pics or drop links until you reach 20 posts. That is for a very good reason. You may not make 20 posts. I hope you do, but I am not sure you will.
You build control panels and breakers? Was that a typo or do you build breakers?
Direct contact is available by PM. I suggest you clarify your type of electrical work or related field first.
I look forward to welcoming you to the forum.

A “customer” messing around inside a panel is a scary thought!

I've said this before, but it's worth repeating.
There are NO PANELS that are UL listed to be used with ANY breaker other than those from the original manufacturer of the panel.


BREAKERS on the other hand, CAN be listed for use in competitive panels. But to attain a UL listing they MUST be tested I in the specific panel you want to put it in. So what that means is that the breaker manufacturer must buy a competitor's panel and mount their breaker inside of it, then test them together. It is a destructive test and very very expensive, so to limit the potentially extreme costs, the breaker mfrs chose to test their breakers in the MOST COMMON versions of their competitor's panels. In the package with that breaker there is a list of VERY SPECIFIC models of panels that those breakers are listed in. Using them in a panel that is NOT on that list is a violation.


So that is the closest you can find to a "cheat sheet" because, even if a breaker SAYS it can be used in a different brand, that information is qualified to only pertain to what that sheet says. It will also ONLY apply to THAT breaker; the sheet telling you that a C-H breaker can be used in a Siemens panel will NOT apply to a Siemens breaker in a CH panel. Each sheet is narrowly specific to the brand of breaker it applies to, so to go the other way, you would have to look at the sheet from Siemens on their breakers and see if the specific CH panel is listed with it..
