comment Does a bad screw require changing the tap itself?
that screw holds the handle on the tab, the threaded part that the screw inserts into is part of the valve. this should have little affect on the operation of the tap. If you can remove the screw then all you would need to do is replace the screw. I recommend a set of pliers.

comment What could happen if a 240 stove cord was improperly installed and then stove was plugged in to the receptacle?
The supply to your house is obviously three-phase, which is a combination of 3 AC supplies, which, when combined form a nice supply (the wavelengths of each ac supply are off-set so that the peak's of each wave follow on continually) -- One of your phases at your main board (outside the house) or Municipal pole has tripped and its causing havoc with your supply.
