I.T.E breakers

I have a co-worker who has I.T.E breakers and wants to know are they any others that will fit in its place. He needs a 2 pole 20 amp breaker for a dryer. I know there made by Siemens. Would a Siemens breaker work or does it have to say I.T.E

The Siemens breaker is the legal replacement.

Breakers have a letter code. It doesn't matter the manufacturer, as long as a breaker has the right code, it's legal for that panel. I believe the ITE and Siemens breakers will both say Type QP. The label inside the front cover will list all the good letter codes.

Glenn is correct, if it is an ITE plug-in style breaker it would be a Siemens Type QP. The catalog number would be Q220. Siemens acquired ITE in the late '80s or early '90s.

Most electric dryers require a 30 amp circuit and breaker, is he sure 20 amps is what he needs?

The catalog number for a 30A 240V Siemens Type QP is Q230.
