After a fire in our oven, I pulled it away from our wall to find this
Is this really acceptable? Shouldn't this splice, at the very least, be in a junction box? Most importantly, with a new oven on its way, should I replace this with an outlet?
(also, side-question: if you look closely you can see the neutral was cut(!!!). Shouldn't that have broken the electronics on the oven? Isn't 120V required for those?)
