Hi,
I was walking through a cafeteria last week and noticed a commercial dishwasher being installed and noticed that the machines electrical flex was being hooked up with individual wire connectors to the existing flex lying behind the machine.
( the wires would not be accessible unless the machine is removed )
Is this legal or should the building owner have a wall mounted junction box installed?
Thanks

The question to be asked, can these terminals be accessed without tools, if a tool is required then it is fine, if not it needs additional protection that needs a tool to remove
