I researched the forum and found some info from several years ago, but I’m still a little fuzzy on the topic. Inspected a house that has what looks like stranded #8 Cu going into a 30 Amp breaker. On one connection some of the strands have been cut and others have been split to fit in the breaker. I’m not sure if this is acceptable. I suspect it isn’t since they had to cut some strands to get it to fit. I’m also not sure if the amperage is correct for the wire. Below the breaker is a 40 Amp breaker that has what looks like a #10 Cu stranded wire. This seems backwards. Any thoughts or education would be much appreciated.
Sorry, see attached photos.
