    Confused where's the power?

    Got a call the other day that an office had no cooling. I know its Febuary.. dont ask....I get to the heat pump and there is no power at the disco so I check the copressor and find the windings shorted. I go off to the electrical room to lock out the breaker and I find this in the panel:






    The breaker thats missing is the one that feeds my heat pump and the center cover is nowhere to be found. Someone meeded it more than me I guess.

    Nice,
    1. One one knew where the breaker went?
    2. F the safety issue, I love to have the Fire Marshal see that.

    my theory:

    shorted windings were tripping breaker
    maintenance guy thought bad breaker
    took breaker to home depot
    found out they don't have 3 phase breakers at HD
    admitted defeat and called you.
