    The conductors at the bottom have been cut off and the service entrance conductors from the meter are coming into a 2 pole 60 amp breaker at the top right. I could not tell the size of the conductors feeding the 60amp 2 pole breaker. I'm uploading a couple more images to get a better view...

    Missing a cable clamp in the bottom. Mr. Sparky didn't have a hex wrench for those cable lugs? Is that a #14 wire on the 20 amp breaker?

    There's plenty of fodder there for an electrician. Best fix is a replacement, I agree with Wayne on that one.
