@SpeedyPetey by fixture I mean outlet in this case. Could you diagram what hardware is needed to attach the outlet fixture to the faceplate (since it's different from a conventional old work box).

comment Is Ground plug replacement necessary?
How hot? Is it hotter than before the prong broke? It's normal for such cords and plugs to get warm in use.

comment How do I determine where lead paint was used?
Let's just be clear that quite a number of builders and repairmen stocked up on the "good stuff", e.g. soon to be banned lead paint, which may have ended up in houses built after 1978. 1978 is not in fact a fully magic cutoff date for danger.
