I came across a Zinco panel that had its deadfront sitting on the ground. The panel had spider webs all over its components. The enclosure was rusty. There were loose breakers. One tandem breaker was damaged. It has three 15 amp, two 20 amp, two 40 amp and two 30 amp tandem breakers and a 100 amp main breaker.
I have two unanswered questions-
The total amperage of the all the breakers on the panel totals 285 amps, but there is only a 100 amp main. How was this ever right and how might I logically describe this condition? Or do I even go there?
How do I write up the spider webs in the panel? Are spider webs conductive? Could the spider be conductive?
What are your thoughts? Thanks guys! :-o
