Landlord needs a head-smack Oven plugged in
 
Was at my pal's apartment this weekend. He rents. His oven/stovetop is one of the small rental sized jobs. It's plugged into an outlet attached to the adjacent cupboard.

Meant to grab a pic - but the grounded three prong plug is connected to the two prong receptacle with an adaptor! :laughing: And of course, it was installed upside down so it was not screwed onto the rec to establish a ground with the BX and metal box.

Sheesh.

lol nice. He could of at least used a crocodile clip to connect the ground pin to a lose piece of copper pipe. "hey, they said it has to be grounded to the water pipe, and it is!"
