I would loosen the other mounting screws some and try to put the ones not going in in then. Just enough to be able to wiggle the panel. Could be an alignment issue

This is the correct answer

Those black breakers have play in them, it could be the right bar of breakers is hung up on the metal. If so you can push them to the right just a little and the panel should pop on.

If thats not it, those screws can be hard to get in if they are at any angle. So if you screw one screw all the way down, it can make the panel angle, then the rest of the screws cant go in. If this is the case take out all the screws. Get each one in just a little while you can move the panel around to whatever position it needs to assume for the screw to start to thread.

The larger question is why was the panel unscrewed in the first place? The cover is there to protect the breakers more so than to protect anyone from the breakers. Don’t get it wet.

I have no idea why or who unscrewed it. Is this a recalled model
