    Are all FPE panels fire hazards or did the company produce any reliable product. Panel was dated 1980.

    Mathew,

    My understanding is that FPE made good fuse panels.

    I believe you are looking at one of the last panels that FPE made. I see a very few of those around here. I have not heard that there were any good FPE panels/breakers.

    It is the red "Stab-Loc" breakers that are the hazard, not the panel alone. In these parts, Home Inspectors and electricians recommend replacing them. Even the realtors know about the problem.

    Guys - read the article.
    Evan is partially correct - but there is more to know.

    This article is still on line and Douglas Hansen is a good writer, easy reading.
