Sylvania panel, Gould QP Breakers
Hello again Gurus,
My house was built in 1983. We purchased about 2 years ago, 1 previous owner that had the house built. My panel is a 200A service. Main panel is labeled as Sylvania. However, all the breakers are Gould type QP. I know that they all (ITE, Sylvania, Challenger, Westinghouse) got bought out by Siemens. My 15A GFI breaker for bathroom and outside receptacles is cracked right down the middle on top of breaker and I'd like to replace. It's a good size crack. I removed and found no burning and couldn't smell any burntness on the breaker or panel for that matter. However, I'd like to replace. Can I just use a Siemens (aka Murray) 15A Type QP GFI to replace? I believe the make/model is QF115P.
