Check this out. http://www.inspect-ny.com/fpe/fpepanel.htm I didn't say FEDERAL POINEER. I have replaced a few Federal Pacific panels. When you take the cover off the the breakers almost fall out. The only place any stab-lock belongs is in the trash. I would check, and see how loose the breakers are, or how easy they come out, and then throw the whole mess in the recycle barrel.

Robert, that link was quoted by the OP back in post #14.
Also, that does not apply to Canada's Federal Pioneer, or so I'm told.

Where's our Canadian friends when we need them?

This is getting funny. OP said his panel is a Sq D QO. One guy posts a picture of a homeline breaker and claims that's it. Another recommends a federal pacific. Then we have a discussion about Federal Pioneer.

How many posts until someone tells him to buy a double pole Square D type QO breaker and that it will be good for 4800 watts at 240 volts?

You better check it again. The OP was about a QO, a pic was posted of a QO, then he said Federal Pioneer.
