Knocks a cork in the meter due to the fact that she is 10 years old
Good afternoon! A private house, an old electric meter, has a 6-amp automatic plug in it. Previously, everything worked fine, but recently, on the same amount of energy consumption (a washing machine in the “Quick wash-30 degrees” mode), it has often become a “cork” plug.
Question: can this happen because the cork itself has become unusable (service life, approximately: 8-10 years) and is it possible to solve the problem by putting a new one of the same volume? I’m afraid to put more volume, because the wiring is quite old.
