I just moved to a new construction house. I brought my four-prong dryer cord along from my previous house and it matches up perfectly. But when I try to plug it in, it goes in about half way and will not go in any further. I checked the breaker and it was tripped off. I reset it but that didn't help. What am I doing wrong?
It appears the east and west sockets are preventing the plug from getting all the way in. There is a small slit in each about halfway in but it does not seem wide enough to accommodate the prongs. Could that be a defect in the outlet?
