Question about Gb Electrical 100 Amp GE Load Center
Have two apt bldgs built in 1969. Both have same size breaker box in kitchens. Size is 10 3/16 X 17 5/8. One bldg. is 60amp and one is 100amp. Want to find "guts" to upgrade. Numbers on 100amp box are 0270 P-0122; Flush Typ TM1410F; replacement parts neutral 456C245G4. Numbers on 60amp box are 1269 P-0114; Flush Typ TX1412F; replacement parts 456C245G3 I don't know which are Model numbers. I have searched all over to no avail. I can't even find a product support help for electrical equipment for G.E.
You won't find any "guts", like longer busbars, to upgrade. The panels pre-date most of the codes and you will not find replacement parts, except maybe a breaker or two. For panels that old you are looking at the possibility of having aluminum wiring and/or two conductor wiring (hot and neutral). In either case, your local code office or utility company will probably require you to update to current requirements. You cannot connect aluminum to copper without nickel connectors because of galvanic corrosion, and if you are disturbing any of the wiring you will probably need to upgrade to three conductor (hot, neutral, and ground). You should be able to buy "Square D" HOM series replacement panels with breakers for about $120 or less.
