What’s all this hubbub about Federal Pacific (FPE) panels?

Category: Electrical Questions

We’re not very good friends with Federal Pacific (FPE) panels; they have been discontinued since the 1970’s due to a high failure rate.  Our article explains why FPE panels are dangerous and should be replaced as soon as possible.  Because of this, we won’t work on a home that has a FPE panel, until that panel has been replaced with a more reliable brand (which we CAN do!).  Other brands we don’t work on are Zinsco and Bryant, for similar reasons.
