Important Note for Users in the UK
Mains plug
This apparatus is fitted with an approved 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
should 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
Amp. If a plug without a fuse is used, the fuse at the
distribution board should not be greater than 5 Amp.
Note:The severed plug must be disposed of to avoid a possible
shock hazard should it be inserted into a 13 Amp socket
elsewhere.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured 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:
• Connect the blue wire to the terminal marked N or
coloured black.
i
• Connect the brown wire to the terminal marked L or
coloured red.
• Do not connect either wire to the earth terminal in the
plug, marked E (or e) 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.
