Federal Pacific Breaker Box relacement question
Hi Everyone, I have a house built in 1978. It,s all electric. I have read some articles on the FP boxes that say they are dangerous, because of defective circuit brakers. I currently have a 200A panel, but it has no main breaker to isolate the panel from the incoming lines. Is there a way to identify a safe breaker from one that is defective? The panel carries a UL sticker, but I'm not sure about the individual breakers. Is it necessary to to replace the whole panel ? If so what brand should I request, and what is an appx. price range ?Thanks in advance for your comments.
