I have a 2 prong vacuum cleaner (hot/neutral). One of the prongs broke off, so I went to HomeDepot to get a new plug. Came home, cut the old one off and went to wire this one on. Black to gold, white to silver, all is fine. Although, the new one is not polarized. The old one is.
I went back to the store, and looked, but ALL of the replacement 2 prongs are non-polarized! I know the non-polarized plug reverses the hot/neutral on the switch when its plugged in the other way. But what am I supposed to do?
It still works fine, but I do want to follow the "electrical rules".
Should I worry about it or not? If so, what should I do?
