Check this important recall on electrical panels. This involves many homes and inspectors need to be aware of this important issue. SQ D recall Notice
You are a little late to the party!
haha. I think this has been posted about 5 times now.
But I do wonder why they would recall 1.4 Million panels, when there was only ONE loose wire, no injuries!
Pretty obvious, don’t ya think?
Nippin’ it in the bud, as the sayin’ goes.
In today’s litigious society, it’s cheaper (and smarter) to Recall something than to deal with a Class Action Lawsuit!
Covering all the bases… just in case!!
Agree, but the report says there was a loose wire. Sounds like an installer error, not the panel itself. Panels and breakers dont have any wires
Agree, but… given all the applications and configurations listed, there may be an exception to what we traditionally see, such as with the installed Main/Neutral/Grounds Bar lugs becoming loose (losing torque) under certain conditions.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see if more info surfaces over time.
I read somewhere that a machine used to torque screws was misadjusted for a period of time.
