Safety Switch and a Fused Sub-Panel


Recommended Posts

Trying to confirm my findings. What do you see wrong with these photos. Any information will help. First is a Safety Switch that I noticed is double tapped and the 2nd photo is the subpanel which has pigtails that are reduced from 10 guage to 14 guage with 30 AMP fuses and a 40amp breaker at the main panel labeled for the garage which is not attached to the home.

Look at the forest, not the trees.

The overarching issue here is that the house has outgrown the electrical equipment. Time for an upgrade.
