Why do you say forget about Cutler Hammer? My electrical supply store listed this: yblighting.com/… as being suitable for my breaker box.

Thanks. If the water heater was running this way would Just one of the two heating elements be running. (they are 4500 watt) or would they both be running at lower power? Would letting the elements run so much longer damage them? I have been able to find a UL Listed replacement main breaker with the help of my electrical supply store. (my electrician could not and wanted to replace mine with a used one of the same model that he would maybe find online..)

Should I really not do this? My electrical company has found me a UL listed Type CC 200 AMP breaker that matches meets code for my box and I have already scheduled the city to come and disconnect me at the meter. I know how to be safe with electricity and test for voltage before I start touching or changing anything.

Thanks. How do I tell if a breaker is correct for the box other than it being 200Amps? Is there anything to consider other than the mount points and how it connects to it's inputs and outputs?

The electrician that I had diagnose and look at the breaker originally said that it would be very hard to find a similar breaker. I have attached a photo if it to the original post.
