Panel Loose at Wall

All electrical panels should be securely attached to the structure of the home. If it’s loose it’s a potential safety hazard and should be fixed.

Electrical panel is loose.

The possible cause of an electric panel being loose can be several: unsecured wires pulling on the box, fastener failure, conduit that is attached to it being pulled down by settling soils, etc. Any cause that is found should be corrected. In the picture above, it doesn’t look like it was ever secured to the wall.
