Condo dweller left food on the stove


and started a fire. While the fire dept. was there they noticed that the units had FPE panels, which even I have heard of, and have gotten bad reviews in Cyberspace and in the real world.

So now everybody has to get new panels even if they've had no trouble with elec. fires in those concrete buildings.

Is this code or is it dictated by the Insurance Industry?

BTW, if I lived there I'd get my FPE panel replaced, even at my own expense.

As long as the panels have a UL listing, I do not see how they can mandate it by law. Due to that, I suspect it is an insurance/HOA thing.

Agreed. It's like when the condo association tells the members that they all have to upgrade their windows.
