Question 30 amp vs 50 amp

The apartment complex I live in put a range outlet in my laundery room instead of a dryer outlet. Can I use a 50 amp range cord on my dryer instead of a 30 amp dryer cord? I don't want to burn it up. If any one can help it will be greatly appreciated.

I would not do that. Hae them change the receptacle. It's not that difficult a job.

You live in an apartment. You pay them to do things properly. Have them come back and fix it.
