Old, rusty.....double tap on the top left lug.......


Greg,

How can you tell the neutral is overloaded without being able to see the wire and breaker sizes? ![icon_confused.gif](upload://qv5zppiN69qCk2Y6JzaFYhrff8S.gif)

He has 2 15a breakers sharing one neutral on the same phase.


I suppose there might be an appropriate sized breaker feeding the panel but I would want to see it. The phase wires seem bigger than the neutral tho. The red wires are just passing through. I would like to see what they are doing too.


I can come up with a couple of scenarios but none are good.

Greg,


But how do you know that is not a 10 gauge wire on the neutral and the other wires are oversized?
