[ad#block]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!

This electrical question came from: Bryan, a Homeowner from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
