Federal-Pacific stab-lock circuit breaker panels manufactured between 1950 and 1985 are defective and unsafe! They need be removed and replaced as soon as possible. For fire safety reasons, we highly recommend replacing all FPE panels. The hazard they pose to homes and families is absolutely not worth the risk.
Our electricians here at Nordeast Electric can usually change out your panel in one day with minimal down time for power loss.

There are many reasons to update your service panel including age, lack of capacity, or damage. If your panel is more than 25 years old, it's a good idea to replace it with a new panel. Modern panels are equipped with today's newest technology in order to provide you with the safest living environment and worry-free protection.
In addition, if your meter socket and mast are showing age, it may be time to upgrade or replace them.
We also recommend replacing screw-in fuse panels. Fuses do not appropriately detect hazardous electrical situations that can pose a fire risk. In addition, fuses are not able to be reset and must be replaced if they have failed.
Many insurance companies assess higher rates to homes without modern circuit breakers.
Switches and outlets can wear out over time and work sporadically or stop working altogether. Below are different styles and colors. We can also order your preferred style and color if you don't see it below. We have residential and commercial grade devices available.
