Might a Swedish manufacturer wire a black/white conductor cord with white as hot and black as neutral?
This machine has a cord retractor. The cord connection terminals are marked "L" and "N" but, as you can see, the white conductor is connected to "L" and the black is connected to "N."
Has anyone encountered this on other European small appliances?
I would like to be 'good' and run the hot lead through the switch.
