Perhaps if you describe the problem and how you are trying to install the breakers someone might have an idea of what is going on.

Are you sure the panel is a Homeline and not a QO? Square D catalog indicates those panels should accept 12 and 6 tandems respectively.

thanks.

the label says homeline and everone supplier i speak with says they should work but they dont.

the breakers should just snap in but the only way they would fit is if you used a sludge hammer to seat them.

appreciate the help. larry

It sounds like a non-homeline breaker trying to be jammed into a homeline bus. But I have seen crazier things ...

the model # of the panels is what i listed and the model # of the breakers is what is listed on the breakers.

i've been trying to get some type of access to homeline but no luck.

looks lie i am stuck. i can chaqnge the sub panel esily enough so that might be the simplest direction.

thanks for your help

Installing tandems into a Homeline panel can be a tricky thing. You have to slide the backside of the breaker firmly into the pan rail slot before the breaker will properly seat into the buss. It's almost a matter of pushing it backwards to seat into the pan rail, then swiveling the breaker down on the buss.

Try again.
