New plug for toaster oven?
The plug on our toaster oven started to melt right where the prongs go into the plug.
It turns out the internals of the wall socket had rusted and that was the problem. A friend replaced the wall socket BUT I think the heat damaged the cord because the plug itself (not the cord) still gets really, really hot.
I bought a replacemeng plug but once I opened the package it said it was for "light duty" and not to be used on any appliance that generates heat.
I returned the plug and bought this one:
Do you think it is the proper plug. Here are the toaster oven specs:
Type 027/ 120 V/ 60 HZ/ 1500w
I'm lost when it comes to things electrical and will appreciate any help or advice with this.
Looks like that plug should be adequate only if the appliance is a 2-wire device. Its a commercial grade plug so it will handle the power your appliance needs. 15amps = 1800 watts.
Was the toaster 3 prong? if so, find one that is 3 prong. If not, don't bother.
Does the new outlet grip the plug securely? This is a bit puzzling.
