Panel Identification

I have a residential panel that I need to identify which has no labels except for the UL sticker inside of the panel. I have tried to search for the number on the UL database but have had no luck. I could possibly going about the search wrong and getting no results. The UL label has "BO-042383" on it. If anyone could help me identify the panel it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Will do as soon as I can get by the house to take a picture. The main reason I need to identify it is because a contractor doing work on the house earlier this year removed the trim panel while doing sheetrock work and the panel hasn't been seen since. I need to try and find a replacement for it

Seriously doubt you will find a replacement cover if that is what you mean by trim panel.

Is it worth a shot attempting to find one? Do you have any suggestions other than having the whole thing replaced?

Depends on the panel and its age. Without knowing hard to say. This is the contractor's problem. It should be on his dime even if he has to have one fabricated or replace the panel.

If I could find him he would definitely be replacing it but unfortunately I can't locate him. I have heard rumors that he got in some legal trouble and is not in the area anymore. I will try to make an attempt at finding a replacement first . I will get a picture up at some point today. Thanks

Did the rockers just seal it in one the stud bays near the panel? I'd be tempted to cut some exploratory holes.

They didn't seal it behind the sheetrock, they just failed to put the cover back on for some unknown reason. These are the pics if anyone can help me identify the panel.

These are the pics I took of the panel:

I see a General Electric, A Cutler-Hammer and I think another brand of circuit breaker in that panel. What I don't see is a main circuit breaker. Is this panel fed from another panel in the same building or a fused switch or circuit breaker/panel next to the meter?

Just for the mix up with the circuit breakers I would think about changing this panel. It is possible that all the various brands of CBs are listed for use with this panel but without the listing notice (usually pasted inside the door) I can't be certain.

Agree. I also see what appears to be some Bryant, Siemens and possibly some original Arrow-Hart Murray or early Crouse-Hinds breakers in there. My guess is that this is an old Arrow-Hart Murray panel from the '70s. If I am right, there are multiple code violations here including the non-CTL tandem breaker at the top left. I seriously doubt you'll find a new cover/door for this panel. I would replace it.
