Federal Pacific Panel Issues

Please click link for 8/21/10 article from the Dallas Morning News.  Click Here

The following is the comment I include when a home has an FPE panel.

This home is equipped with a Federal Pacific electric panel with "Stab-Lok" breakers.  "Stab-lok" load centers and their components are considered problematic by industry professionals due to their high failure rate as documented by the Consumer Products Safety Commission.  Failure of any component within the electrical system may result in fire and/or electrocution.  Evaluation of the panel by a qualified electrician is strongly advised to determine its safety, integrity and performance.
