Excessive heat at a circuit breaker connection (overheated wire) inside the electrical panel are commonly caused by either a component drawing more electrical current than the wire can handle or a loose connection. Recommend further evaluation and repairs by a competent licensed electrician.  This was found during a typical phoenix valley area home inspection.
