Guide to Identify Electrical Cord Wires

Electrical Question: I have a 2nd hand Whirlpool air conditioner, model number ACM082XC1. The previous owner must have ripped out the ground, so I went to Home Depot and asked for a two prong to three prong converter.

Thank you for any help you could offer!

Additional Comments: I like your site and the info it has to offer. Specific to my issue, I’d like to see a section on how to tell hot from neutral on older appliances.
