Your circuit breaker is

In reply to my two cents is that 15amp outlets are good enough by LJ in TX on February 23rd, 2003 06:02 PM [Go to top of thread]

sized to protect all the wiring and components of the circuit it services. You could possibly overload a receptacle rated at 15 amps (15 to 20 amps) without the circuit breaker tripping to protect it. For this reason, 20 amp circuits must have wiring and components rated for the circuit. Luck, Kizmet
