melted wires on outlet
when i changed the original outlet the was there when i bought the house, i cant remember seeing anything of that magnitude on the wires or i would have tried to remedy that first or call a pro. i believe they were fine when i put the outlet in, it was about 5 or 6 monthes ago when i changed it. as for the solder look, i dont know what that is, there are soldered wire connections in the house that are taped up, its possible, but like i said, i would have never left it like that, i would have made sure it was clean copper. maybe i didnt notice it, ive done a lot of work in the house and its possible but unlikely i overlooked that. i snipped off just the little bit and the new wire is clean. maybe ill just hook up the new gfci and keep an eye on it unless i hear otherwise on here.
