Replacement panel for Crouse Hinds e26095 panel


It is my understanding that the almost 30 year old Crouse-Hinds panel in our mfg. home that we need to replace may be exchanged with a Siemens brand panel? I'm having trouble finding a place that sells them to DIYers, let alone anyone who knows which panels are comparable or compatible -unless I want to pay for a contractor to quote me (a phone guesstimate from one reputable local electrician was about $2K). I'd prefer to do this work myself and save some cash, but need to make sure it is the right panel. Where do I go from here?
It's a 25 am duel pole breaker for my crouse hinds e26095 panel.

Replacement panel for Crouse Hinds e26095 panel


Are you saying that you are going to change the panel since you cannot find a 25 amp two pole breaker for the panel? What do you need the 2 pole breaker for?

Why do you believe the panel needs to be replaced? If the panel has no rust, buss bar damage and is of adequate capacity it should be ok.

If a 25 amp breaker in the panel is causing you problems you can replace it with a Siemens or Murray 25 amp breaker as long as you feel comfortable doing the work yourself.
