    I'm after some advice. We've just had a new Neff induction hob fitted. Only one side is working. 3 areas have an error code 5 13 on it. I've spoken to Neff and they say the error codes relate to an installation error and won't help but the electrician is adamant it's a faulty hob. They've used...

    EICR CODE too close to pipes

    What is the right code for: a) central heating pipes running directly below a socket (left to right). Could heat from the pipes slightly warm the socket and possibly warm a flex cord of a plugged in appliance if it touches the pipe? Would lagging the pipes solve this? b) electric cable...

    EICR - Code 1 or 2 - for unenclosed conductors in choc-blocs?

    Hi all, I've got a couple of examples of this; on a domestic EICR. I'm on the fence with the coding - C1 or C2. There is no copper showing on the live parts - but I wouldn't like to grab it. I just want to be consistent with this - I mean if it was just bare conductors twisted together...

    I have just completed an EICR. All the earths have been chopped off in the ceiling roses and switches on the lighting circuit. There are no class 2 fittings. Usually if there are no earths on the lights and no class 2 fittings then it will be a C3. However, the lighting circuit does have CPC's...
