You can try using an apoxy metal based resin to glue it back into place... or if you can access it properly solder the prong back in place...

If neither of these help - then I am afraid you need to replace your wall outlet

What does prong mean


A prong is usually a piece sticking out. Your vacuum has a power cord that plugs into the wall outlet. The metal pieces coming out of the plug that go into the wall outlet are called prongs.

I have a three prong plug washer/dryer but a 4 prong outlet need an adapter


YOU DONT ADAPT IT, U REPLACE THE RECEPTACLE OR USE THE CORRECT PRONG CORD. THE CORDS ARE NOT THAT EXPENSIVE FROM 20 TO 30 BUCKS AND EVEN CHEAPER ON LINE. IF U HAVE A NEWER HOME IT IS MANDATED BY LAW THAT YOU USE 4 PRONG CORD NOT 3 PRONG UNLESS THE HOME CAME WITH A 3 PRONG OUTLET.

The wall plug does not fit in the wall socket, it has weird prongs


If the power plug prongs are not the same as what you normally have, (assuming the prongs were not messed up, i.e. they are from a foreign country) you can get and use an adapter ... that fits the "weird prongs" on one side and has the "normal" prongs on the other side ... to plug into the outlet.

I have a Frigidaire FAFS4473LW Steam Washer- 3 prong. I moved into a new place with a 4 prong. Do I need a 4 prong cord, or can I change the 4 prong adapter on the wall?


Hi nancy huerta...

You can change the cord or the receptical...
It will be easier to change the cord...
Purchase a four prong plug cord that will fit into your receptical, then wire your dryer for 4 wire instead of three wire use.
To see a picture and explanation of how to wire your dryer for a 4 wire plug go to the following webpage.

Laptop has 3-prong cord, house has 2-prong recept. adapter safe?


Yes ... If I am going to plug in my $1500.00 laptop in to an outlet, I wait to charge or run, not cook. I don't know how you feel about that. Are you a USA resident? Are you using 110 VAC or 220 VAC? Plug your laptop in only if the power is known to you.

The best way to overcome this problem is to have an electrician update at least one outlet in each of your different homes to the standard, three prong plug, which was established in the USA more 40 years ago.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com
