SIEMANS vs NEW MURRAY CIRCUIT BREAKERS

I HAVE A MURRAY MAIN PANE AND I WANT TO CHANGE THE CIRCUIT BREAKERS.
MURRAY CO. WAS BOUGHT OUT BY SIEMANS A WHILE BACK AND MURRAY BREAKERS BECAME UNAVAILABLE, WHEN SIEMANS STARTED MARKETING COMPATIBLE BREAKERS UNDER  THEIR OWN NAME. THE OLD MURRAY BREAKERS KINDA SUCK. TODAY I FOUND MURRAY BREAKERS AVAILABLE @ HOME DEPOT. MY QUESTIONS ARE:  THE "NEW" MURRAY BREAKERS  MADE BY SIEMANS OR ARE THEY THE SOME OLD MURRAY BRAND? ALSO, HOW DOES QUALITY COMPARE BETWEEN THE TWO? AND, ARE THE SIEMANS COMPATIBLE BREAKERS STILL AVAILABLE?

Hey Steve,


Thanks for your question and joining us on the community.


Every Siemens breaker panel I have ever sold and seen at The Home Depot is what is considered a QP type. This means they have a female contact that snap into the bus bar just like other compatible brands we sell like GE, and Square D Homeline.


Although your Murray breakers will most likely fit and be compatible, you'll need to go over any local codes to ensure that brand compatibility will not be an issue and can pass an inspection.


Beyond that, the breaker can and will work since they are modeled in the same Siemens QP type format.


Let us know if you have any further questions,


Joseph
