Sparks in the Kitchen

D'oh. Plug must not have been pushed all the way in. Someone pushed the stainless steel canister to the wall, and the tongs slid in behind the plug. At 7:00am my wife closed the door to the microwave above and saw "sparks fly out the bottom" of the microwave. The breaker tripped. Without fixing anything, wife and son reset the breaker. It reset. When I got home, someone bumped it container again and again we saw sparks, and then we saw:



















It could have been worse. The tongs were connecting with 100V. The tongs were in a steel container. The steel container was up against the ss cook top...

Shouldn't that plug be a gfi? Or at least on a GFI protected circuit?

I know around here, all bathroom and kitchen counter plugs have to be served by a GFCI. I installed one GFCI in the kitchen that covers all of the outlets over the counters.

Re the GFI, the house has two. But now that you mention it, only the breaker tripped. I will look into that and report back. Thanks!

During 2004 remodel:
