Do you think I should keep this breaker panel?


I called one of my suppliers and found out the cover is available for $40 plus tax. It was available off the shelf.

Look for a Rexel distributor near you.

It's a shame. I have an extra one of those covers. I had a customer lose a CH main 200A breaker on a Saturday. The only way to get her back in action quickly was to buy a whole panel at Home Depot and charge her for it. Left me with everything but the breaker and a new breaker from the supply house would cost as much as a new panel.

Maybe you and the OP can work out a deal?

It frustrates me when you can buy a panel enclosure with a breaker cheaper than the breaker alone.

I never bothered to price the breaker alone, but it was $170 to buy the panel from HD and it came with 12 circuit breakers also.

That breaker could have cost you over $250.
