This is a main panel and a sub panel for a 40 year old home. (Sorry if I offend some of ya’ll with the term “Sub” panel, it is how my report is worded so I use the term.)
First problem I noted was 2 fuses that were missing.
The main was a pull fuse and I could not see the size of the 2 fuses. The panel was rated for 125 amps. Problems I noted in the panel. Loose wire not connected to a breaker, the service entrance wires were doubled lugged to provide power to the "sub."
Problems I noted in the "sub" were neutrals were not isolated, and there was a missing strain relief clamp. I recommended that both be looked at by a electrician. Anyone see any other problems that I missed?
