Breakers >6 throws Run like hell


Recommended Posts

Anybody ever see this b4? I inspected a condo unit with a subpanel for that unit#, sloppy but aok seperate ground bus and all. But to shut the panel down completely it took more than 6 hand movements, too many. The main breaker (single throw) was at the end of the building complex ~65yards away. How should I call that?

Open for opinions.....

It is not an issue. I see it all the time. The rule counts at the main disconnect only - not at a sub-panel. However, the occupant must have free access to the main disconnect and must keep the key where it is readily available if he/she has padlocked it.
