Grounded Outlet

If you notice the “mouth” is missing from your outlets or you have 2 holes instead of 3, you have an “ungrounded” outlet

Homes constructed prior to 1960 tend to have problems with ungrounded outlets. The actual 2 conductor wiring is typically the real problem and not the actual outlet itself. Originally when an electrician wired a home, he used a two conductor wire which was the proper method of that time. Sometime later, more ‘modern’ electricians replaced the original two prong outlets with three prong outlets which are still used today. Unfortunately it can be very dangerous without an actual third conductor to connect to that third prong of the outlet.
