    I noticed that right off too. I don't think that can is bonded to anything. And whoever installed that panel didn't just break out the whole concentric KO, they didn't know what they were doing else they would have used a shorter nipple. Smacks of DIY or handyman.

    Picture #3 you can see upper right grounds burned, time for a service change and cutting back on the HR wires to get to non damaged insulation as the outer rx thermoplastic is discolored from heat. I would also check everything in the electrical circuits for damage before I put my name on it; lawyers.
    How this passed inspection?
