i do believe its the people who dont give too hoots, i do work for a dude and in his cafe big scortch marks up the wall, i asked him what went wrong and he said it was the outside lights, that were not there anymore and not isolated...

no one gets the message with electrical as there is no message really there

this is for expierienced one, new to me

i got asked to replace fan in a flat other day by landlord , said no problem, so when got home from work went up and had seen the fan is inside the shower cubicle(the fan is ipx4 but less than 2m high) and stuck to wall with ssilicone,

took off the cover and could see straight away that the neutral was in the permanent live terminal or switched live terminal anyway turned off lights and tested the voltage and swapped connection and fixed this to wall with screws

can any of you shed any fault with the neutral being in wrong terminal

wrongly wired and stuck on with silicon. don't need hercule poirot to deduce that it was probably the builder dunnit.

well iwas going to xharge him £15 quid but it is upto £30 now

there is no rcd's on the lighting, what do you think about the the fan being inside the cubicle..

to be honest i told guy too pull the fuse while i got my drill to fix it to wall and he actualy turned off lights at switches in the whole flat and i did get a buzz
