Federal Pacific Electric Panel Replacement

Federal Pacific Electric Panel ReplacementWhat is the Problem?

  • Federal Pacific Electric (FPE), a major electrical component manufacturer in business from the 1950s to the 1980s, sold millions of Stab-Lok® branded panels and circuit breakers.
  • In 2002, a class action lawsuit in New Jersey ruled that FPE Stab-Lok® branded panels were not tested to UL Standards over the years, resulting in breakers that are slow to trip…or don’t trip at all up to 80% of the time.
  • There is no practical way a licensed electrician can tell if a circuit breaker will work properly in the case of an overload at your home – it would have to be removed and tested in a lab.
  • If a circuit breaker doesn’t trip, damage to your home can occur.
  • Many insurance companies will not insure a home with an FPE panel…or they will charge a premium for the additional risk.
  • In Feb 2012, Orlando’s WFTV Channel 9 recently ran a story on FPE panels: http://www.wftv.com/news/news/inspectors-find-hidden-danger-many-central-florida/nHWCQ/
    You can read more about FPE here: http://inspectapedia.com/fpe/FPESummary.htm
