I have a GFCI outlet in our bathroom that was recently remodeled. The outlet is new, and over the last 6 months, it has seen constant daily use from my wife and i plugging in and removing things (hair dryer, electric razor, etc).
It seems like the plug gets harder and harder to push in/remove as time goes on, like there is more resistance. I havent had this issue before, but do outlets corrode or wear out?
a) is it a problem b)is there a solution other than replacing the outlet?
Possible cheap GFCI. Replace with commercial grade (ie Leviton Pro series).
