The dryer is 13 years old, and sat in my garage for about half that time. We had the dryer that came with the house die a few years ago and replaced it with one we had as a spare.
I touched the metal in the vent from the outside and got the shit shocked out of me.
I don’t get shocked touching the outside of the unit while it is on. My worry is I remember getting zapped before, while adjusting the legs, but I can’t remember if it was this one or the previous one.
Could this be bad wiring or a bad dryer? Is there an easy way to find out if the wiring isn’t grounded?
Edited for grammar.
