I have a panel with Challenger breakers, and they are an exact match (as far as I can tell) with Siemens breakers. If a replacement/additional breaker matches the structure of the originals and fits properly, is there any problem mixing the brands? In this case we are talking about 15A and 20A breakers (standard residential circuits).

A phone call to the manufacturer will settle this issue. Make sure to get their opinion in writeing.

Don't just call the seller, who will probably just say, yea, it's ok. Go to the manufacturer. I believe Challenger has a web site.

I have a copy of a letter from Jim Farley who is with Cutler-Hammer Technology & Quality Center. I can e-amil a copy to anyone who wishes one. The main point of his letter is "specific Cutler-Hammer residential circuit breakers types can be used to replace Challenger, Westinghouse, and Bryant types in equipment and loadcenters that are marked as being suitable for the use of Challenger, Westinghouse, or Bryant circuit breakers." There is also a table of breakers suitable for this application.

E-mail a request for this letter to me at rmiell@hotmail.com

You can easily replace cutler hammer circuit breakers with Westinghouse circuit breakers, just make sure you check the datasheets of the model numbers. Make sure they're compatible with the panel board you're installing them to.
