Hello gurus and mini-gurus. I would like specifics on “allowable” double-tapping. If the breaker is Square D, CH, or other approved by the manufacturer for double tap, I think the gauge must still be the same for each conductor AND each conductor must be in its own slot, that is, one on each side of the screw, is this right?
In a case of double tapping not permitted, is it a permissable repair to join the two conductors to a short pigtail with a wire nut in the service panel, so that the pigtail goes to the breaker? If that is OK, provided the total load is still acceptable for the breaker size, double taps are not that serious of a defect in terms of repair, right? :neutral:
