Staying Neutral

Ok... let's see...
the manual says there are 2 hots, a ground and a neutral... Huh?

 
Ground and neutral are ganged up on a pole. The manual says that isn't a winning combination (won't necessarily burn the house down, but 2 out of 4 coils won't be lighting up.)
Sure enough, a quick call to the trusting soul that let me borrow this little beauty confirmed that an electrical engineer had put a new male plug on to match their wall socket.
Yep...
Now it's time to figure-out how to install a 4 prong outlet and plug and call in an electrician...
Hey! I cook for volunteers.

You know... it'd be a whole lot easier to hard wire this eh?

I have no f-ing idea, Zyg. Lotsa luck.

Oh my... that sounds like too much for me. If we lived closer, I'd send Brian over. He hardwired my Bailey and rewired my vintage L&L. I, personally, would call an expert to avoid zapping myself. ;) Good luck!

A good zap is not on my to do list... but this is doable.
