Sylvania Panel

This panel and system had several problems but can anyone tell me if this Sylvania (Zinsco) panel is one to be concerned about? Thx


No Robert, that’s not the problematic type panel.

Thanks Jeff. I read some of your earlier posts and I didn’t think it was. Thanks again.

Take a look at this panel. The blade-type bus bars are the tell-tale sign of the Zinsco/Sylvania/GTE panels that are problematic. The bus bars may be aluminum or copper, but they are unmistakable when you encounter them.

Good info! The home was old and has some issues, i.e., ungrounded 3 prong outlets,
etc. I’ve found a fair amount of posts addressing those concerns.
