Can a 125A main circuit breaker be installed in the catalog number HOM12M100RB load center to replace the factory installed 100A main breaker?

Issue:
Product Design features

Product Line:
Homeline load centers

Environment:
Main breaker

Cause:
Application

Resolution:
No, the load center mains rating is only 100amp MAX and to install a 125A main breaker in a load center rated at 100A Max would violate the UL listing and NEC. Although a QOM1 type QOM2125VH breaker may physically fit into the main breaker position on this load center, it would be a violation of UL and the NEC. A 100A rated load center must have a main breaker rated at 100 amperes or less.
