I have a plug in a very inconvenient spot in my house and whatever I plug there keeps falling out. Sadly, it s also the only one close enough for my microwave.

I’ve installed many 240v breakers and ran wiring for outlets many times. But now I can’t completely remember. Is the 3rd prong on a 30 amp L plug just a ground or is it actually a neutral?
