Window mounted air conditioner had a burned-up blade on the plug.
New replacement plug gets hot at the same blade.
New plug needs to be wiggled or the blades spread to make electrical contact in the socket.
What's the problem here? Bad plug, bad socket or air conditioner pulling too much juice for either plug or socket? [more inside]

How do you secure a plug so that even if someone yanks on the chord, it doesn't come out of an outlet? It does need to be POSSIBLE to get the plug out sometimes, and it won't work to glue/staple the chord to the wall, because sometimes equipment needs to be moved to another room. [more inside]
