I can see only two mounting screws used at the bottom on the panel, nothing on top. Looks like electrical tape and maybe silicone used to seal and secure the main power leads. Ganged grounds at upper left side, looks like 4-5 at one lug and extending way to far through the mounts.
It may just be the picture, but, insulation on circuits 1 & 3 (upper left) appear to be melting.
Lower right corner, 110 circuit under a 220 breaker, most likely touching the right side bus, and double tapped. Looks like a total of 4 double taps. (Hard to see but upper left breaker has one off that duct tape mess)
Upper right corner, 2 110 circuits through one knock-out, most likely unclamped. Cable sheathing extending to far into the interior area of the panel box.
Main power leads appear to be showing to much copper. tips could be exposed by about 1/2 inch. Note the wires to the 220 circuit very close if not touching the main service lines. Can't read the breaker sizes but I'm almost sure the we have a wire size to breaker size issue at several places. PVC chase does not appear to be proper.
Amateur installation, most likely installed by a un-qualified party and NOT permitted and inspected by AHJ.
High potential for shock and/or fire. Call for further evaluation and repairs performed by a qualified and licensed sparky!
OOPS!. Missed the lower left 220 breaker, circuit leads places directly behind the main power leads.
Did I say DUCT TAPE!
