Hi guys. One of my 002s has a weak breaker it trips at like 7-8 amps of load. I want to adjust the R3 resistor. How do I make the breaker hold more load by turning the R3 screw clockwise or counterclockwise? I need to get it to hold a 26amp load to adjust the R3.
Thanks in advance for any help

See post #15 in this thread. It would be a good read for you to read the whole thread as there is a LOT of information regarding the circuit breaker you are having difficulty with and exactly how it works and how to best adjust it and best tools.

TIP - Using the SS "Google Custom Search" function box at top right of screen with appropriate key words often helps to zero in on something that has been discussed/answered before and you don't have to wait on others to locate it.

I have read everything I could find on as regarding the r3?adjustment but no one has mentions which direction to turn the resister adjustment I’m going with the hit or miss approach until I can get it to hold the load. Thanks for explaining the search feature I’m not very computer literate. Thanks again
