Replacement Breaker - Crouse Hind
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hello,

I'm having trouble finding a replacement breaker. The breaker is on the right in picture (It is the 2 pole one...the breaker is for electric baseboards). One electrician told me that they were not available anymore and the entire box would need to be replaced. I've also attached a picture of the box information.

Any help would be great!

Thanks!
Brandon

Thanks...what information do you need to determine the size? I know he referred to them as Minis.

If you can't find any replacements, one thing you can do is remove 4 thin breakers (so you are on 2 busses) and replace with one standard 2 pole Murray (Murray bought Crouse Hinds, now Siemens owns the Murray name) to feed a small subpanel, then move the circuits over that lost the spaces to the new breaker to the subpanel.

when i said size, i meant amperage, the one i linked to is the 'thin' style
