Question

Do I need to replace an outlet if the plug is loose?

Home Alliance Tech Expert
Answer

Yes. A loose plug in an outlet results in high electrical resistance. Electrical resistance causes overheating, which often results in a fire. An overheating outlet may also damage the connected device or appliance. Replacing an electrical outlet is a relatively inexpensive task.
