    GE THQC Circuit Breaker Failures

    Has anyone had trouble with breakers overheating and becoming open internally? The particular breakers we've seen were 60/2 240V in a 20KW strip heater. Breakers were manufactured during the fifth and sixth weeks of 2005. Any comments would be appreciated.

    That would be two, but only had trouble with the first stage (also powers 2.6A blower).
