Breaker panel with no main breaker
Not really a question, mainly reporting something I've never seen before. We purchased this house built in 1970, has a fairly late model looking Siemens 200 amp breaker panel, without a main breaker. Has the knockouts for the main, but when you remove the cover, there's no breaker. I've never seen such in my life. The service cable has been moved at some time from an overhead service, to an underground service. But still wired straight to the buss bars. I know I'll have to have a licensed electrician replace the panel cause the meter is going to have to be pulled. Anyone ever seen this situation before?
