Two of my recent inspections had Square D panels that had dual HOMT circuit breakers that did not appear to be properly seated, nor (as best I could tell from the rating tag) appropriate for the panels, for which only HOM circuit breakers appeared to be appropriate. The breakers in question are on the top right of the panel. See pics for additional data.
I hedged a bit on my write-up, and said the HOMT circuit breakers appeared to be mismatched and poorly seated, and recommended they consult a licensed electrician regarding this.
So, are these circuit breakers acceptable?
Also, do any of you have freakishly similar findings come up within a short period? For example, this year I had a run of several inspections in which the same mid 1980s Bryant furnace model was present.
(Anyone spot the other obvious potentially serious defect in pic #2?) :shock:
