Federal Pacific or Stab Lok electric panels

Wanted to post something on these electric panels. I saw this one on an inspection the other day and, yes they are still in use in homes today. If you have one of these in your home I want you, RIGHT NOW/TODAY, to call an Electrician or an Electrical Contractor and have it evaluated for safety or possible replacement. I know, sounds expensive. But, I assure you the risk to you and your loved ones far outweighs the price. They are a known fire/safety hazard. Unfortunately, there is no official recall on these as the company was sued out of business by a class action lawsuit from the state of New Jersey in the 80’s. The design of the panels is what makes them potentially unsafe and there is no “fix”.

Thanks, David Powell LLHI #10898
