Dangers of Federal Pacific Panels in your Massachusetts Area Home
Federal Pacific panels and breakers have proved to be dangerous and have caused many electrical fires. Let Addarios install a new, safe electrical panel for you.
The following is an excerpt from the web site "http://www.inspect-ny.com".
This document explains the latent electric shock and fire hazards associated with Federal Pacific Electric Stab-Lok electric panels and circuit breakers. Federal Pacific Electric "Stab-Lok" service panels and breakers are dangerous and can fail, leading to electrical fires. The problem is that some 240-Volt FPE circuit breakers and possibly also some 120-Volt units simply may not work.
How Many FPE Stab-Loks Are There? Why Are They Still In Place?
It has been suggested that there are as many as 28 million of these FPE Stab-Lok breakers in use in the U.S. which means that in some conditions as many as one million of them may fail to provide proper fire protection. This includes "new old stock" and appears to include "substitute" FPE stab-lok circuit breakers, none of which have shown an improvement in reliability in independent testing. So the right "repair" is to replace the FPE Stab-Lok electric panel.
