The customer stated that half the lights in her house wouldn’t work. I told her she would need a new panel. She didn’t like the cost. As far as I know, her lights are still out.

Some of that stuff looked like ancient cloth-insulated NM until I looked even closer and saw an insulated EGC and a paper jacket, then I realised it was NM-B that is just really ate up! [Linked Image]

I sure hope that the "lights out problem" is due to the feeder to this panel being shut off...S [Linked Image]

I couldn't get close to the panel because someone had built a 4 foot wide work bench in front of it.I think you see the red because the pic is shot from an angle.

It's a good thing the workbench is there to keep this out of reach!

A new _panel_???

I'd say a full rewire, if not a new house!

Randy: 100% ACK!

Here this mess would be stuffed into a hole in a brick wall, covered with newspapers and plastered over. At least they got some free-air cooling here! [Linked Image]
