Previously posted were some meter readings that should be
taken. 240 volts should exist between the two smaller prongs
from each half of outlet. If that 240 volts does not exist,
then a 'fire in the wall' problem exists. It is probably OK.
But since you made a change, you DO want to verify the problem
does not exist. And not just for safety reasons. You do want
her to still like you?
GFCI was just some secondary consideration. You *want* to
verify that voltage. That voltage measurement was not an
option. If is most likely alright. But the down side is too
negative. Confirm that voltage.
