Federal Pacific Panel
My daughter and son-in-law recently purchased an older home and had it inspected prior to closing. It turns out that the home has a Federal Pacific Breaker Panel (200 Amp). I have heard a lot of bad things about this product. I thought that the inspector would have given the kids a warning about this situation in the inspection report but he did not. I took the cover off and did a visual inspection and did not see any apparent problems with overheating at the buss. The know problems are with the stab-lock connection and the failure of some breaker not tripping when called upon to do so. What should they do, have the panel replaced?
