Why Were These Panels Recalled?
Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) and Zinsco Electrical panels were recalled due to their inability to function properly. They are highly inefficient, pose a fire hazard, and have a high failure rate. These panels were produced in the 1980s and 1990s and were widely used in new construction. As a result, many homes built during that period may have these recalled electrical panels.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) investigated for two years and announced that it was closing its investigation into the FPE circuit breakers. However, it is crucial to replace these recalled electrical panels as soon as possible for the safety of your home and family. Zinsco panels were also deemed obsolete and have been recalled.
Why Is it Important to Replace Your Federal Pacific or Zinsco Panel?
Not only are these panels dangerous, but they can be inconvenient and expensive to maintain. The costs associated with Federal Pacific and Zinsco panels can be up to ten times higher than average expenses, and it is hard to find replacement parts for them. Additionally, these panels do not meet current electrical standards and codes, meaning that you may be found in violation if your panel is not replaced. Accidents associated with Federal Pacific and Zinsco panels are also not usually covered by insurance companies, and their presence can significantly lower your home’s value.
