Reverse Polarity at Electric Dryer Outlet
Posted by Don't want no *Sparky Dance* with the Local Firemen on October 25, 2002 at 08:21:35:
A friend tested the outlet where my electric dryer is plugged into and found out the outlet has reverse polarity. He used one of the yellow testers with the lights on the end. What does reverse polarity mean? This was something missed by the home inspector when I bought the house. Is it safe to use the dryer until I call the electrician? How big a job is it to fix? Sorry to ask this here on Terry Love's plumbing website, but plumbers do know something about electricity don't they? Plumbers know something about everything, don't they? Love this web site. Gotta have a sense of humor in life. Thanks in advance.
