White Oxidation


I added a 220 line for a baseboard heater with the help of DIY chatroom.
When I opened the panel, I noticed some light rust and some light white powder (oxidation) on some of the metal. Can I shut the main off at the meter and shoot some Corrosion X on the breakers and terminals?

Thanks again for any help.

I see you have copper wire good is the panel outside or inside i think its just normal oxidation You could with the Neutral Wire find something plastic and put some Nolox on the end and spread on lug. DO NOT DO THIS TO THE HOTS iF not wanting to do this yourself hire a electrician .If the panel outsde? After looking art it agian i woulnt worry about it bit lets see what others say there are alot of great Electrician on this site
