Important notes for users in the U.K.
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 3 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 3 Amp. If a plug without a fuse is used, the fuse at the distribution board
should not be greater than 3 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.
• 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.
