When I bought my house, the cover and door on the breaker box was missing. I've searched everywhere, what can I do?

  • I feel your pain. We acquired a building with all the service panel covers gone. The (readily available) CH covers were quickly found under a sheet of plywood. The (unobtainable) Pushmatic cover was never found. 'Course, we didn't look on eBay... – Harper - Reinstate Monica Feb 12 '16 at 16:30

Imperial hasn't been around since the late 1970s, so finding a replacement panel cover is likely going to be either very difficult or impossible. You could check to see if a Siemens distributor can source them (they ended up with Imperial's assets through a series of acquisitions), but that would be a long shot. The best option is likely going to be replacing the panel.

  • Would it be up to code if I had one made out of sheet metal and hinged it? – Sandy Kline Hewett Feb 13 '16 at 11:56
  • Thanks, even though I didn't want to hear that. I never get the simple problems:( – Sandy Kline Hewett Feb 13 '16 at 12:01
