Installing an over the range microwave, ran the (yellow) wire to the box, but where can I attach the ground and neutral wires? The one bus on the right is full, the second bus on the right is empty, but can I use it? Nothing else is attached to it.
What code would you attach to this gem, I gave it C2. These terminals are contained within steel trunking but are also part of a live 3 phase cct. See picture. It is installed as a 100 Amp 3 phase ring with these terminals every few metres. Distribution boards are connected from these terminals...
Hello all! Probably a noob question, but really appreciate your help with this. I am trying to fit a ceiling light and need to get out the existing electrical fitting to be able to screw in the base plate of the ceiling light I bought. Below are the pictures of the existing electrical fitting...
Hi, my Consumer Unit is in a cupboard in my hall. I would like to install 1 double socket only in this cupboard.
I was wondering if I could run the cable to feed this socket from an already occupied 16amp mcb or 32amp mcb from within my CU?
I have a new bathroom mirror with lights which works ok but makes a constant buzzing noise whether it is turned on or off.
It wasn’t installed by me, but when I remove the front I was surprised to see that it has been wired using 2 electric wires - see attached photo.
As a complete novice I...
I am not an electrician but fitted a few light fittings and thought it was pretty straight forward but that is the extent of my knowledge. This one, however, wont turn off. Just moved into a new build and took previous light fitting from my other house. When i have fitted it, the light wont turn...
This picture was sent to me by a plumber - so I'm guessing its some form of plumbing or gas safe regs
He was saying the bond HAD to be within 600mm and that my regs (BS 7671 AMD3 were wrong!)
So I was wondering is this is the document above that needs changing to reflect the proper description!
I'm stumped about how to correctly and safely wire up a new light fitting and stupidly didn't take a picture of the existing ceiling rose set up before removing it. I was wondering if someone here could help me out! I've attached a picture of the four wires that are coming out of...
I recieved Culina track lighting today and don't feel it is safe to install. I have shown the manufacturers instructions with a detail from the page which seems to only refer to the track lighting. Not the light fittings that I ordered. As you can see from pics the bulb holder is floating around...
Have been working in a building installing emergency lighting. Was taken back by the size of the Main Intake Room. Biggest Intake Room I've ever been in!
Like to see other people's pics and experiences of any other interesting buildings etc.
Hi everyone, I'm new here and I know little about electricals apart from wiring a plug! It's something I've wanted to always learn even just the basics so I am grateful for any advice.
I've had a 3 bulb ceiling light fixture for a few weeks now. I cannot for the life of me figure it out. It's...
Hi - sorry, I haven't been on the forum for ages! Its that long I cant see how to attach photos now!
I have a couple of queries following some work carried out by another contractor and would appreciate a second opinion ( or as many as possible )
One of my customers has just purchased some...
Evening all. Does anyone want to buy a copy of 'Modern Electric Wiring'? Have ended up with some duplicate books in my collection. Published by Caxton, hardback, 1950 (66 years old).
Was after a tenner but that would include postage.
Mods - if this isn't allowed let me know, cheers.
Firstly, I'm not an electrician but have found these forums extremely helpful reading over the last couple of weeks due to a running battle I've been having with UK Power Networks. Hoping some of the experts on here might be able to shed some light on the below...
