How to connect a plug

The wires in the power cord are colored as follows: blue = neutral (N), brown = live (L).

If the colors do not correspond with the colors on your plug, identify the terminals in your plug as follows:


Connect the blue wire to the terminal marked N or colored black.


Connect the brown wire to the terminal marked L or colored red.


Do not connect either wire to the earth terminal in the plug, marked E (or e) or colored green (or green and yellow).

Before you replace the plug cover, make sure that the cord grip is clamped over the sheath of the cable and not just over the two wires in the cable.
