what is


Question by  Caitlin (52)

What are the different breaker sizes for appliances?

I want to make sure I have the right ones.


Answer by  scaremall (202)

All appliances have different requirements. 10-20 amps would handle most countertop appliances. Big ranges and ovens could require a 50 amp 2 pole circuit breaker. Your best bet is to look on the appliance for a rating tag and compare this with the circuit you plan to use. Consulting a qualified electrician could save you in the long run.

Breakers are just like fuses, you need to base it on the amps your device will draw. So a 30 amp device needs a 30 amp break etc.

The breaker size that you use should be dictated by the appliance itself. You should review the appliance's specifications and consult an electrician. Most have 20-40 amp breakers.
