Greetings. My wife and I rented a house recently. When I went to hook up our electric dryer, I found an old looking straight slotted three prong outlet (see picture), whereas our clothes dryer, which is maybe eight years old, has a three prong plug, with one of the plugs being L-shaped. I’m no electrician, but I did decide to check the circuit breakers and it does appear it is a 30 amp fuse and the existing three straight slot outlet says 50 A on it. Any thoughts before I just call a professional in to take care of this? Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.
