Since we are taught that neutral and ground should only be on the same bus on the main disconnect, not even on the same lug, what are we supposed to say about bootlegging the ground to the neutral on a stove or dryer per manufacturer instructions on a 3 wire plug?
If the neutral shorted out wouldn’t the frame become energized ?
In a distribution panel/sub panel on a house or condo the neutral and ground are on separate buses. Why is it ok to combine the neutral and the ground on a 3 wire and plug it into a outlet in these instances?
It seems to me that the 3 wire plugs are very unsafe and I don’t see how they can even be used on a condo that has a distribution panel. Maybe I’m making a mountain out of a mole hill?
But how should I list these as a defect of at all?
