breaker compatibility


I have a Sylvania BC32125DS Panel and am looking to add a 20amp GFI breaker for some exterior plug outlets, I was wondering what breakers are compatible.

Cutler-Hammer type BR and CL breakers should work fine in a Sylvania panel. I believe that ITE/Siemens breakers are also compatible.

ALL bets are off if your "Sylvania" panel is the old-style Zinsco type.

Can you post a picture of your panel?

THAT is a bolt-on panelboard. You will probably have to remove one of them, and take it to a wholesale house to find a compatible replacement.
