Is this still considered an extension cord if its hard wired into the junction box?

Came across a gable power vent today that had an extension cord hard wired into its junction box. Any thoughts on this? Thanks for the help

If it’s connected to a permanently mounted fan then it can be argued that it’s a substitute for fixed wiring which is prohibited. If it came with a factory cord and plug then that wouldn’t apply unless the location prohibited cords.

Thanks for the quick reply Robert.

Drew, if you leave the question up, especially when there is an answer from an expert, it can help other inspectors…just a thought.


I will repost Larry I didn’t want to waste anyone’s time, but you’re right
