I have a Square D panel with a Square D break homt220240cp. its a quad tandem breaker dual 20a and dual 40a. 40a for oven.
I need to replace it with a homt230240cp but cant find anything nearby. Its shown on Homedepot but special order and weeks to get.



Ive read that only Square D breakers can be used in Square D panels.


So is there any compatible mfr breaker for my panel that will do the homtt230240 job?


Reason for change is 20amp is to small for my new table saw.



Thanks for any tips!

Your trying to go from a tandem that has 2 20 amp single poles and a 40 amp double pole. To a 30amp double pole and 40 amp double pole.

I'm confused because one has 2 240v circuits. The original has 2 120v circuits and a 240v circuit. If you need more amps on a 120v circuit that double pole 30 isn't what you need.

If the original wiring is for 2 120v circuits with their own neutrals and grounds and you go installing it with a double pole 30 several issues will arise. Do you plan to rewire both 120v 20amp circuits with 10/2 wiring to support the upgraded breaker?

I’d try the electric supply houses in your area to see who carries Homeline. Someone should stock that breaker.

Going to 30 amp, you will need to rewire that circuit.
