Circuit Breakers Aframe A213HW



Wondering about the last 15 AMP breaker. Why does it look different that the other 15 amp breaker.

Welcome to the forum!

Things change from model year to model year.

You might get more help if you post a photo.

It may be a GFI breaker. Without pictures we can only guess.

Everyone gets confused at some time, some are better at hiding it than others.

Without pictures we are only guessing, but it may be a single 15amp breaker for a single circuit whereas the other breakers are dual with 2 circuits each.

I just looked at ours. Navy is correct. The single is #4 for the microwave.

Yep, the only difference is that it is a single circuit breaker rather than a dual circuit breaker.

The disadvantage of the factory configuration is that the converter does not have a separate circuit breaker. It's usually combined with the fridge AC on a single breaker since the 2 combined are less than 700 watts. Combining the fridge and converter on the same breaker means a problem with one device takes out the other. I felt (and feel) that was an unnecessary risk with an extra AC breaker slot readily available.

Since I was replacing the WFCO/Converter panel (8735P) with a Progressive Dynamics equivalent (4135), I bought 2 half width breakers (combined in one package) to replace the single wide breaker. This gave me an extra breaker to move the converter to. A 10 amp breaker each for fridge and converter is more than sufficient, although wiring will support 15A. 15A breakers are more commonly available, but HD had both sizes in the right format.
