How do I know what amp this panel is at. There is no external breaker and not sure how to add the breakers to know on this. The panel box itself says 125A but please explain how you get there by looking in the box.
is the 60Amp box feeding the A/C a legitimate way to come off the feeder side
Comments on the mast head under the siding?
I also saw some double lugged and some bushing missing off top and live wire hanging on side (other than breaker off. Anything else you wish to share, I have a trainable spirit.
In terms of question # 1 -FPE’s have been discussed here since the dawn of time…or time of this forum anyway. Do a search on the subject and you will find all you care to know about FLE and everyones random opinions (many based on personal feelings and not facts) but…never the less everyones entitled to have one…you may develop your own while reading.
And that idiotic statement makes me laugh…I am not about to pull a cover off if it looks dangerous to me. This is a Zinsco and the breakers do not clip on to a bracket. It was also just a 4pt, and the name alone is enough to walk away from that panel, no further evaluation needed.
I guess you never heard of what’s called an “Arc Flash” before. And, I really don’t feel like waiting around for an electrician to get the damn thing fixed temporarily…it’s going to have to be replaced anyway if this client wants insurance. Get It?
No I don’t get it! How do you know what the insurance co is going to pass or fail.
And as for arc flash use proper eye protection, and use the front as a shield when opening the darn thing. And wear gloves…
In addition, don’t stand in water …thought I would let you know.
Roy, you may not be familiar with what a 4 point inspection is…insurance overview of the four main systems. Just by the name alone, insurance underwriters in FL will not accept a Zinsco panel, along with FPE Stab-Lok. More and more carriers are not accepting Sylvania and Challenger panels either. Replacement is mandatory whether in good shape or not. I have plenty of experience with this. Most of these are over 40 years old and need replacing anyway, but I don’t say that in my reports…I just report the manufacturer and any defects.
