I'm asking because I've had a funny problem with my clothes dryer. The
electronic circuit board keeps acting up and I wondered if the circuit
breaker was introducing noise on the line which could affect the board. I
have replaced the board a couple of times ($100 each time). The electronic
board will freeze up and not allow any input. After awhile (an hour, a day,
it varies), the problem will go away. I can't find anything wrong with the
dryer and like I said I've replaced the board. I've no reason to suspect the
breaker but something is acting up. The dryer is 5 yrs old and has been
doing this for a couple of years now.
This is Turtle.
Breaker can become noisey if the connection at the clips are not tight and set off a
arking of the clips to the service box spade.
The noise will be a buzzzzzz of the breaker when under any good load at all. If it
was the connection. You should have stopped the
buzzz when you put the new breaker in there. It is very rare to see a breaker buzzz
but they can do it.
