25 amp max. sticker?? Stupid question but, huh!!


Recommended Posts

I'm willing to bet you that sticker was meant to be somewhere else.

If the main is within panel limits as shown on the label, ignore the sticker. Just pay attention to the panel label.

100 amps Siemens sub panel. Beside its obvious informational role, this 25 amp. max sticker right next and, pointing to the 100 amp main breaker makes me wonder which one should'nt be there, the sticker or the breaker?? What say you?

I'll bet it's a Canadian thang.

What did the schematic show?

Everybody is right so far, the Max arrow is indicating the position opposite the 100 amp breaker. The label looks to be factory installed.

Yes, the Canadian factory might still be churning out product, amazing, or maybe the factory is offshore, who knows?

I think they are saying the max total capacity for each of those tabs is 125 amps, eh?

It is actually more common to see a sticker prohibiting the use of those slots altogether, probably a safer choice if the main breaker could be upsized to 125.
