Circuit Breaker, working in reverse

8858 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Stubbie
I have found a nice and small load center to replace my inside fuse box. The box, which is carried at Lowes, uses a 220 circuit breaker as the box main breaker. This means the breaker would need to work backwards, IE the constantly powered end is the breaker wire attachment point.

Does this work? is this allowable? Would it pass an inspection?

This breaker in not a built-in breaker. It is a normal 220 V 100A breaker, installed in one corner. I should have dug around in the box further, when I was there, for an explaination.

If this was the built-in breaker, yes it will work fine. This is how a main breaker needs to work.
