stove receptacle?

I recently had my kitchen remodeled. The stove receptacle was surface mounted which caused the stove to stick out. I asked the contractor to have it flush mounted.
When I attempted to plug in my new stove, part of the (where the prong would be connected) receptacle (same one i had) moved behind the dry wall (it dosent seem to be anchored).
So do i need to buy a new receptacle designed for flused mounting or can the existing one be utilized.

Help anyone!

Call the contractor and have him repair it. Like you said it is not properly fasten down.
Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.
