Zinsco Electrical Panels

A Dangerous History of Failure

Zinsco electrical panels never enjoyed the popularity that Federal Pacific panels did, but they were installed in a significant number of pre-1980s homes. Since the 80s they have become obsolete due to the high proportion of Zinsco products that failed to meet UL safety standards.

In fact, testing has shown that over 30% of Zinsco circuit breakers and panels fail to meet standards. Failure for these products includes:

  • Breakers not tripping when overloaded during a power surge.
  • Arcing and burned up wiring at the point where circuit breakers attach to the panel.
  • Circuit breakers catching fire.

Zinsco Electrical Panel

All of these failures are dangerous to Florida homeowners. Arcing can cause extremely painful electrical shocks while overloaded and burned up circuits can leave you with no power in a best-case scenario and with serious fire damages in a worst-case scenario.

Area homeowners should also note that Zinsco circuits and breakers are used in more than just Zinsco panels. If your home has a Sylvania or Kearney electrical panel, it may have these failure-prone circuit breakers.

Whether your panel is Zinsco, Sylvania or Kearney, make sure you have it inspected by a Mister Sparky electrician before it puts your family at risk! Schedule now.
