When I was younger, I remember witnessing someone install a dishwasher. In the process, he did some things that were rather stupid. I asked the him at the time whether what he was doing was safe. He assured me it was. Now that I am older and know more, I’m pretty sure he was wrong. Here’s what he did:
He installed a junction box on the floor somewhere behind the dishwasher. Of course, it can’t be seen, and it is on the floor beneath the kitchen counter. As I recall, it is positioned in a way that it is unlikely to come into contact with water. Nevertheless, it could still happen.
Here’s my question: I no longer live at the residence where this man did this work, although I owned the building when he did it. (That’s why I was able to see him do this.) Is this code violation (or collection of violations!) so serious that I should try to do something about this despite no longer living at that home? If so, what do you suggest I do? I’d hate to think that a house could burn down when I now suspect that something is wrong and could maybe do something about it. Should I worry about this?
