Hello,

I am new to this forum- is my first time posting so I'd like say hi to everyone.

Im stuck with extending an outdoor socket, so I need help please.

I currently have working duo ( socket and switch) outside my home. I want to extend it to a ne2 oitdoor socket few metres away
I ha e fitted the new socket but everytime i try and wire it, it blows the fuse off.

So just to be clear, I'd like to connect the new socket to the switch on the working socket.
How do I wire it? What coolor wire goes where?

Any help is welcome.

Hi,

The photos 1 and 2 are of the existing working socket.
3 and 4 are of the new socket- not connected / non workig.

I hope this helps.

Thanks in advance.

That isn't looking great Nas and it would be inappropriate to give advice to resolve your problem. The best course of action is to employ an electrician.

Hi. Thanks for your reply. Do you mind telling what foes not look nice? Is it the hanging/not connected wires on the working socket?
 
Cables are not glanded. Cables not fixed and prone to mechanical and solar damage. Conductors cut too short resulting in the use of unfixed block connectors. Unsleeved cpcs etc....
