In reply to new garage wiring, still blowing circuit breaker by S. on January 11th, 2003 02:05 PM [Go to top of thread]

I'm afraid you've no choice here but to either 1. add a new circuit, or 2. break up the existing wiring into more than one circuit, which is usually possible, but not always. You definitely do NOT want to install a higher amperage breaker, unless everything in the garage is wired with 12/2G, which is unlikely since it's a 15 amp breaker. If it is 12/2G, then you can go up to a 20 amp breaker.
