Would like a little assistance with calling out all the defects in this panel & the amperage of the system.Im thinking it’s a 200 amp system but all the signs of a 100 amp system are present including the meter .So I see the doubled up neutral wires & im wondering if I should say that the old cloth type conduit should be listed as a fire hazard and needs replacement,also there appears to aluminum solid branch wiring but may just be coated thank you for any & all help with this inspector brothers !!
It looks to me like that’s a 100AMP panel
As for issues I think you could safely use a narrative like this to sufficiently cover yourself:
“The following issues were observed in the electrical system that should be reviewed and corrected by a licensed/qualified professional: Double tapped breaker, doubled neutral wiring, electrical wiring needing identification-marking, rust/corrosion on older fuse box near panel, portions of circuit wiring appear to be older that client should consider upgrading. Recommend corrections as needed.”
Good luck man.
Why do you think it is a 200 amp service?
Well it has a newer mini-split AC units installed & I was assuming it would need that 200amp service plus it was switched over to a breaker panel from a old fuse type .But it actually has a 60 watt fuse main disconnect that’s still serving the stove …Why switch it over if it’s not going to be upgraded to a 200 amp service?Seems kinda stupid to me but I guess it’s apparently a 100 amp service correct
The meter enclosure is 100 amp, the SE cable is 100 amp and the main circuit breaker is 100 amp. Conclusion, 100 amp service.
I agree with Rob.
It feels good after a few mea culpas.
Hey Robert, I love the title. I’n my opinion asking questions is a way for all of us to learn from each other. I myself have been finding a lot of things I don’t know about lately and have been asking a lot of questions. I greatly appreciate all the knowledge that everybody offers.
Exactly Cory that why I posted it .This is my first Year Inspecting & getting paid for it .I did 2 Schools & a few months of training on the job . Now that I’m on my own if I’m not 100% positive about what I’m seeing I’m not hesitant to ask someone.I don’t know everything & I want to learn for the next time I see this .Greatly appreciate the feed back.I love my job and I’m grateful for this Forum .God bless you all for the help!!!
