bought a house last year... breaker panel is ITE/Siemens, I invested in
a 2-pole 20A combination breaker/TVSS for piece of mind. There are two
green LEDs on the front of the breaker, that show that the TVSS/surge
projection is working. Was down in the basement doing laundry the other
day and noticed that one LED is still bright while the other is dim. I
switched that pole off and it's definitely glowing, not just getting
light from the other LED, but it is noticeably dimmer than the other
one. Does this mean that the MOV in there is getting ready to s**
bed? Will I have to replace this breaker every year or so? At close to
$200 a pop, that could get spendy. But I did notice after I installed
it that the clock in my coffee maker stopped freaking out and I do have
lots of electronics that I'd like to keep protected.
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
