Stranded neutral wire loose wires

Does this pose a risk…One piece of the stranded neutral is touching one of the hot lugs.

If it is truly touching a hot termination then yes it is a defect and safety hazard but it looks like it is touching plastic…nevertheless it need correction.


Okay that confirms what I suspected. Thanks so much, Larry!

If it were actually touching the hot leg it would probably melt as it is ahead of the OCPD. As Larry stated it needs to be repaired.
