The contractor believes that the receptacle is installed properly and to code.
When the receptacle was opened, one of the tabs on the madison bar was completely burned off. The contractor replaced the tab, spent some time in the crawl space and electrical room checking the installation and re-taped the receptacle. It is basically the same installation unless they discovered something else that they didn't mention.
I am concerned that the same thing could happen again.
