When you change an electrical panel to breakers from fuses is the aluminum wiring removed and changed as well?

Hi ,

Are you talking about main feed or branch circuits?

If you meant the branch circuit , it's nothing to do with panel installation.

Hello Roula

There is no requirement to change out the aluminum (AL) wire when you change from fuses to breakers.
