Double Tapped Breaker

2272 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  frenchelectrican
hello all,
at a recent home inspection, the inspector noted that a breaker was double tapped and this is not good because it could arc, one wire is for lights and the other is for the doorbell transformer, he mention i could use a 2 pole breaker like the one pictured here, is this true or safe?? what else could i do with the doorbell wire? put it on another seperate appropriate breaker?

Remove the 2 wires from the breaker, wire nut them together with a single pigtail. Run the new pigtail to the breaker. You do not need to dedicate a breaker to a doorbell xformer.
