Question about Dryers
Yes. Failure to ensure the plug is flush inside the outlet, leaves 220-240VAC exposed on the terminals. This presents a potential shock hazard and/or fire hazard if anything was to fall behind the dryer and end up lodged on one of the terminals. Some of the plugs will fit very tightly inside the wall outlet. However, if the plug does not insert properly, you may require an electrician to install a new outlet for you. If you are not familiar with electricity, I would not recommend attempting to repair an outlet on your own. As I stated before, the voltage potential is 220-240VAC with a current rating of about 25 to 35 amps. I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you still require assistance.
