I have been told that one of my electrical outlets in my living room is incorrectly wired. I have items that need electric on each outlet which work when plgged in. My question is if an outlet is incorrectly wired will items that require electricity still operate?

Hi, I'm Mike and I'll be glad to assist you. If reversed hot and neutral on an outlet that works the issue is a shoch hazard. All other miswires will not work.
