Looks like it arcedand melted, which my give you problems. Do you know what size set screw it was? That way I can tell you what size to drill to be able to re-tap it. This way may work as I can still somewhat see the center of the screw. That is where you want to drill or try to.

Start with a small 7/64" drill bit. That will give you some room to play if you need to retap it.

Also may need to take a dremel with a burr if you have one, and clean up around the screw where it looked like it had melted to the parent metal.

actually, on second look, it appears the screw is still up at the top. {the rest is just terminal block exposed}

get a "center punch" and center punch it, and then use a 7/64" drill bit. {reverse if you can get one} and drill it out, then use a small screw extractor to remove it.
