Your electric panel is a workhorse! After all, it takes all the electricity that comes into your house and distributes it so that you have power wherever you need it! Without it, you couldn’t use lights, appliances, entertainment systems, and more.
Because you rely on your electrical panel every day and because it handles such a large amount of electricity, you want to make certain you have one you can rely on. After all, if the electrical panel stops working or overheats, you could end up with a serious situation on your hands.
One company has recently recalled 1.4 million or more of their electrical panels. They have a flaw that causes them to overheat, causing serious burns and even fires in the buildings where they are installed.
These panels by Schneider Electric USA are in all sorts of structures, from homes to businesses and even to some recreational vehicles. Residences, warehouses, restaurants, and more are affected by this recall.
The recalled panels were sold in hardware stores across the country between February 2020 and January 2022, with date codes between 200561 and 220233. A few circuit breaker boxes made in December 2019 and March 2022 are also included in the recall.
Schneider is attempting to contact all known purchasers of these recalled products, though there are many people whose contact information they do not have access to. Whenever possible, Schneider will arrange to have the panels tested to determine whether repairs need to happen or a replacement is required.
