Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) Panels
Federal Pacific Electric Company (FPE) was one of the most common manufacturers of circuit breaker panels in North American from the 1950s to the 1980s. Millions of their panels were installed in homes across the country. Yet, as the years passed, electricians and home inspectors often found Federal Pacific Electric panels failed to provide proper protection to homeowners and their families. Experts now say that FPE panels can appear to work fine for years, but, as the pictures show below, after one overcurrent or short circuit, they can overheat and become fire hazards.
