The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse, the value of
which is indicated on the pin face of the plug.
Should the fuse need to be replaced, an ASTA or BSI approved BS 1362 fuse must be used of the same
rating. If the fuse cover is detachable never use the plug with the cover omitted. If a replacement fuse
cover is required, ensure it is of the same colour as that visible on the pin face of the plug. Fuse covers are
available from your dealer.
DO NOT cut off the mains plug from this equipment. If the plug fitted is not suitable for the power points
in your home or the cable is too short to reach a power point, then obtain an appropriate safety approved
extension lead or consult your dealer.
If there is no alternative to cutting off the mains plug, ensure that you dispose of it immediately, having
first removed the fuse, to avoid a possible shock hazard by inadvertent connection to the mains supply.
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Blue= Neutral, Brown=Live
As these colours may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your
plug, proceed as follows:
The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE
The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured
BROWN or RED. On no account connect either of these wires to the terminal marked E or by the earth
or coloured green or green and yellow.
