Did this video help you?

Jared Waterman: I have the same Siemen's breaker you demonstrated, and this fits in my GE sub panel.  Can you mix/match them, or do I need to get a GE AFCI breaker for a GE panel?

chienmichael: Will you be able to recommend AFCI breaker manufacturers? Thank you.

Death ToTruthers: This is an excellent video.  Thanks.  I was wondering if it was possible to install an arc fault breaker on an existing/old panel, given that I didn't know which one would be the neutral for that circuit.  This video has a great explanation of how to do that.  As soon as I can find my main breaker, I'm going to install these on my kids' room circuit.  Thanks!

Steve D: Thank you.

Sandra: Make all your 110 circuits AFCI or  AFCI /GFCI Dual Function

Wayne Somcher: Excellent video - very clear and instructive.  Thanks for taking the time to inform us.  Does the AFCI offer any GFCI protection?  To bad AFCI isn't the standard period, and priced accordingly.  

Shadow of Palms: Great tutorial.  Thanks

ozzstar: good video, thanks

Mary Howard: I'm pretty sure the NEC 2008 says something like "all power sources" meaning Lights and plugs are required to be Arc Fault protected.  All bedrooms and all habitable spaces that are not GFCI protected (bathrooms kithens unfinished basements).  REMEMBER TAMPER RESISTANT PLUGS ARE NOW REQUIRED.  Great teaching job - especially telling people to read. 

B Carr: I am replacing a arc fault breaker but this particular one has only a neutral line connected to it and the coiled white out is connected to the neutral bar. The load line black for that circuit is connected to a regular breaker. I have never seen this type of connection. Do you have any ideas as to why they wired that circuit this way. 

Robert Rooney: This guy must hv the worst looking pannels. Who wires breakers tht aren't attached the circuir. Momo

askmediy: By code it's just the outlets.

Carlos Gonzalez: Excellent video my friend. But I have a question. I wired my all bedrooms on its own circuits. Lights on 15A and plugs on a separate 20A. In short each bedroom lights and plugs are not sharing one. So to the question, what do I put on an arch fault? The plugs or the lights? Or both with 20a arch fault for plugs and 15a for lights?

Ben wanan: Great video,u install 2 wires,b and w.to have 240v,but what about the n wire to the switch?

PianoUniverse: I'll use both, one AFC! for the panel and GFI for the outlet. Thank you!

askmediy: They are not the same. If the wetness you're worrying about use GFI

PianoUniverse: Great video. I will be installing two for some aquarium equipment. Does these AFCI breakers super seed a regular GFI outlet? Meaning if I use this breaker I don't need a GFI? Thanks again...

Brian Coley: If a breaker tests and resets, is it possible that it is still bad? I feel that I may be dealing with that very issue. But I am definitely no electrician.

askmediy: Awesome, glad I could help out

Albert Maruggi: Sorry hit done on my phone I meant help to me. Outstanding information delivered in a way that is understood. All the best
