20A fuse not tripping?
I was measuring the current going into a 20A circuit breaker in my main panel using a clamp meter. I was seeing 25A for at least 1 minute or more. The breaker did not trip. I understand that they might not trip right away, but is this within that realm of tolerance? What is the best way to test a circuit breaker? FYI, loads into the circuit were a gas dryer (just the tumbler), washing machine (agitation cycle), and a microwave rated at 13.3A. There may have been a small wine frig going on this circuit at the time as well.
