Video of Changing A Plug
Summary From The Video
Changing a fuse in a plug is one of the most common tasks a homeowner will have to undertake in their lifetime and to start with you will need to:
Unscrew all screws on the plug using a suitable screwdriver
Unscrew the ‘Flex Clamp’
Loosen the terminal screws and then pull the wires away from Pins and remove the wire
Make sure that the wires aren’t damaged
Then remove the fuse
Open a new Plug that has been purchased and removes the fuse from the new plug
Feed the end of the Flex under the clamp, or between the flex grips
Connect the brown wire to the Live terminal marked ‘L’ on the right of the plug
Connect the blue wire to the Neutral terminal marked ‘N’ on the left-hand side of the plug
For any appliances that require an Earth, there will be a third terminal marked ‘E’ at the top of the plug
When appliances are double insulated there will only be 2 wires to connect, Live and Neutral
Now tighten all the terminal screws
Ensure that the Flex is held firmly by the ‘Flex Clamp’
Tighten the Flex Clamp
Make sure that all the wires are correctly fully inserted, there shouldn’t be exposed wire
Now screw on the cover to the plug and you will have successfully changed a plug fuse.
