Duel element or time delay or K5 etc fuzes are to allow a motor to start since that may be like 5 times the run current!!!!!!! Yeppers, youre right on, the breaker or fuze in the panel is to protect the branch circuit feeders while the thermal overload device is to protect the motor, two seperate and distinct functions....Its NOT rocket scient but to lay persons it may be hard to understand???

It's sometimes difficult for me to understand! It is the same principle on that the breakers protect property and Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFI's) protect people. If you don't understand the function it makes the rest of it confusing.

Good analogy to a point Id say,,,,,,the breaker protects the branch circuit feed wires from overheating and shorts and that can prevent a fire that could destroy LIFE ORRRRRRRRR PROPERTY

The GFCI is indeed aimed more towards saving a life!!!!!!

The thermals or heaters or internal thermal overload device is to protect the motor

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeAdditionally, many motors already have thermal protectors built into the motor.
