Using 20/30 amp breakers

We’re having some problems using the 20/30 amp breakers. They are not fitting into the PDP without leaving a gap. We have never used these slots before, so we’re hoping to get some assistance on using these since we need the extra slots for motor controllers. Thank you so much!

Could you post a picture of the problem?

A moderate amount of pressure is needed to get the breakers to seat but you shouldn’t feel like you’re pressing hard enough to break anything. Have you confirmed that there’s no debris inside the PDP that might be causing the gap?

We will check for debris, but there shouldn’t be any. No amount of pressure will get them all the way in.

That is correct - they will sit high like that if you do not grind their contacts shorter.
