Plug-ﬁtting Instructions (UK only)
The cord supplied with this appliance is factory-ﬁtted with a UK mains plug ﬁtted with
a 3-amp fuse inside. If it is necessary to change the fuse, it is important that a
3-amp fuse is used. If the plug needs to be changed because it is not suitable for
your socket, or becomes damaged, it should be cut off and an appropriate plug
ﬁtted following the wiring instructions below. The plug must then be disposed of
safely, as insertion into a mains socket is likely to cause an electrical hazard. Should
it be necessary to ﬁt a 3-pin BS mains plug to the power cord, the wires should be
ﬁtted as shown in this diagram. The colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals
in your plug. Connect them as follows:
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be
connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter ‘N’ or coloured BLACK.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be
connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter ‘L’ or coloured RED.
The wire which is coloured GREEN/YELLOW must
be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter ‘E’ or coloured GREEN.
If a standard 13-amp (BS 1363) plug is used, a 3-amp fuse must be ﬁtted or, if any
other type of plug is used, a 3-amp or 5-amp fuse must be ﬁtted, either in the plug
or adaptor, or on the distribution board.
