If a new electric range has a 4 prong cord but the outlet is 3 prong can you get an adaptor or does the outlet or cord need to upgraded or replaced?

You should install a four prong. The older ones were three prong and had no ground. An adaptor isn't made because it wouldn't fix the problem. You could make your own adaptor and cut the ground off with a pair of dykes, but don't.

Although both options exist, it would seem that the vast majority of electric chair lifts require a standard outlet. The outlet, however, must be grounded (three prongs).

The majority would plug into a standard outlet (120), however others may require a 240 outlet. You will need to check with the individual scooter to ensure you have the proper outlet to charge it.

A battery can cause that; also, energy provided from some external source - as you would get in your electric outlet.

Ground Fault Circuit Interupter is used where the electric circuit needs to be instantly interrupted...like in the bathroom where an appliance might fall in the water, or an exterior outlet that might get wet in the rain...to prevent electric shock.

A fire trap outlet used in motor homes. The wire self pierce romex conductors with a small contact friction contact. These should be replaced with quality screw terminal outlets in outlet boxes.
