Aluminum Wiring and FPE Panel - Yikes!!!


Recommended Posts

Editor's note: The following was sent to me by James Simmons, Mr. Electric. Enjoy

Found this outlet (standard CU type) connected to aluminum wire. You can see the result for yourself. The panel is an FPE and the breaker never tripped of course. Almost caught the house on fire because they had some clothes hanging in front of it.
