Gypsum is essentially just rock, and it comes from the ground, so bonding directly to is like this is clearly just as effective as a full-up grounding rod.

It was attached to the wall but now attached to the frame.


The lesson is in the struggle, not the victory.

It looks like a3-wire supply cord. Is that green wire just the EGC from the cord, or is it secured to the appliance frame?


Does it matter? (grounding/bonding or anything else).

"It all depends, is that a sheet metal screw? You need to bond drywall with a drywall screw."

Too funny!

"and you must keep the drywall moist"
Now my sides hurt!!!!! smile
