funny breaker

Hi Billy,
One of the white wires from the breaker goes to the nuetral bar,the other white wire gets wire nutted to the nuetral wire from the circuit that the the breaker is feeding.The black wire just ties in under the set screw on the breaker.
hope this helps.

Is your breaker a single pole, or double pole?

Is there a "test" button on it?
