Beside the fact that the panel cover doesn’t completely close due to the receptacle being too close, is there any other safety or electrical issues? I feel like the panel could become energized if there was a fault at the receptacle, but its connected by conduit, which is basically the same as touching the panel, but I could be wrong.
Yes I see it, but this is the first that touches the panel cover, and the panel cover can’t be secured due the receptacle in this case. I can get my finger behind the cover. The more I think about it I probably didn’t need to post this.
I call for a delete of the thread
I have no concerns over this installation. The only possible hick-up maybe the position of the device/junction box back into into the wall depending on the nature of the wall…combustable or non-combustable.
Many electricians do this in unfinished basements all the time. It appears here that it was done at some point and someone finished off the room at a later date, but that is speculation on my part.
Sorry…I have been out of the HI world too long as I was not aware that poor workmanship (other than if it causes a safety concern) was reportable. This is why the term is hard enforce within the NEC as well because it is subjective to interpretation.
Now, if the cover does not fit, creates a GAP that an arc or some other incident could get out then the cover is not closing over the cabinet properly and that is what I would call out (If Desired) but I would not say poor workmanship…but thats me, to each his own.
