Here’s a 50 Amp 2-pole Circuit Breaker that John Bowman have in his collection of defective equipment.

Joe,


If I remember correctly this breaker was discovered when we remodeled a kitchen. We replaced this breaker because of the breaker having been compromised with the placement of a (allen wrench) hex head screw as a replacement of the regular head screw. I don't believe the replacement screw meets the specifications for range cable (aluminum).
