Mains plug

This apparatus is fitted with an approved moulded 13 Amp plug. To change a fuse in this type of plug proceed as follows:
1 Remove fuse cover and fuse. 2 Fix new fuse which should be a
BS1362 5 AMP, A.S.T.A. or BSI approved type.
3 Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket outlets, it
hould be cut off and an appropriate plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should have a value of 5 A. If a plug without a fuse is used, the fuse at the distribution board should not be greater than 5 A.
Note:
The severed plug must be disposed to avoid a possible shock
hazard should it be inserted into a 13 A socket elsewhere.

How to connect a plug

The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code: blue = neutral (N), brown = live (L). As these colours may not correspond with the colour markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
1 Connect the blue wire to the terminal marked N or coloured
blue or black.
2 Connect the brown wire to the terminal marked L or
coloured brown or red.
3 Do not connect either wire to the earth terminal in the plug,
marked E or -!■ or coloured green or green-and-yellow.

Before replacing the plug cover, make certain that the cord
grip is clamped over the sheath of the lead - not simply over
the two wires.
If in doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
