FPE Stab-Lok® identification from electrical panel door labels: this article describes how to identify Federal Pacific Stab-Lok® Electric Panels and circuit breakers in buildings by information printed on labels affixed to the electrical panel cover, door, or interior. It is information for building inspectors, home buyers, home owners, electricians concerned with hazards of Federal Pacific Electric Stab-Lok® circuit breakers and service panels.

Replacement FPE Stab-Lok® circuit breakers are unlikely to reduce the failure risk of this equipment. We recommend that residential FPE Stab-Lok® electrical panels be replaced entirely or the entire panel bus assembly be replaced, regardless of FPE model number or FPE year of manufacture. We do not sell circuit breakers nor any other products.

FPE Stab Lok electric panel labelLook on the panel exterior, or on the inside of the hinged, consumer-operable panel door.

Look for the words "Stab-Lok® " However some panel labels such as the one shown here will not, at the label top, contain the words "Federal Pacific" or "Stab-Lok® ".

On those labels look at the bottom of the label for the words "Federal Pacific".

What if there are no labels on my electrical panel?

If an electrical panel has no exterior markings at all, it still may have labels inside - data that can be discovered by your electrician if the panel cover is removed. See IF NO LABELS for the procedure to follow where no electrical panels are present and there are no other identification marks on the panel.

Federal Electric Panel (C) D Friedman J Spencer

Here is John Spencer's photo of the interior label of a Federal Electric panel catalog No. 116 showing that this early model electrical panel used the "Stab-Lok® " "E" bus and "F" bus designs in this product.

Look at the bottom of the label just above our red (C) notice and you will see that the "F" and "E" Stab-Lok® bus layout was used.
