PostPosted: Sat Jul 21, 2018 6:43 pm 
Hello All - curious?
Belling E552
This cooker 9.53 KW,
In my eyes 9530 / 230 = 41, so would use a MCB 45amp?

The manual states:
9,53KW
32 amp fuse
Can someone please put me in the right direction.
Thanks

There is a:

PostPosted: Wed Jul 18, 2018 11:19 pm 
Hi,

I have a 20 year old alarm system. A couple of years ago I got annoyed with the alarm company replacing the battery every year or so and when I questioned it they said I needed to replace the panel with a newer version. The engineer said he would disable the PIR lights from flashing while I decided whether to replace the panel.

Last week (emboldened by the video here :P) I decided I ...

Hopefully you can assist.
Never really got to grips with these, all that sticks in my head is .4 or 5 seconds, if anything greater, then you are likely to get a nasty shock.
Many homes these days have MCBs, can I assume that a MCB is a BS EN 60898?

Can I assume (in most circumstances), if a home has the above, then page 58 of the regs (Table 41.3) is the table to ...

 Post subject: Cut through tv aerial
PostPosted: Sun Jul 15, 2018 10:38 am 
Hi

Trimming some shrubs, cut through the cable running up the side of my house to the roof aerial. I've been advised to connect the cut cable using external coaxial joint box for TV/DAB/FM aerial. Having stripped back the cable I have the core wire and the thin braided wires. Do I attach them all to the terminal connections, just the core? Any help much appreciated!

Thanks.

 Post subject: smoke detector to light, regs say 30cm, but to what exactly
PostPosted: Sat Jul 07, 2018 7:46 pm 
I’ve recently moved into a new-build in Scotland.

I want to replace a light fitting in the dining room and fit the replacement light so that it’s centred above the dining table.

I believe there’s a regulation that says the light must be 30cm from the nearest smoke detector.

My questions is - which part of the light should be 30 cm away from the smoke detector

* the part where the cable enters the ...

Dear forum users

I hope someone may be able to enlighten me on whether Northern Power Networks will be able to fix this issue for free (I hope :help: ) or of the order of the costs involved ( :cb ).

Attached is a photo of the electric supply for our newly purchased terrace house (built circa 1900). The ...

Hoping for Advice, thoughts and suggestions about the following install & moving forward:

Electrician came over on Thursday - full install - cooker hood/extractor.

Obviously - to isolate the kitchen supply - he accessed the consumer unit. I asked if he could take the cover off - and give it a look over - I'd pay for the extra time:

 Post subject: smoke/heat alarm placement
PostPosted: Sun Jul 01, 2018 2:19 pm 
I'm looking to install two smokes and a heat alarm in this property and just seeking advice/feedback on placement due to the size of the kitchen. With the scottish regulations normally I go for one heat alarm in the kitchen, one smoke alarm in the hallway and one smoke alarm in the living room.

From the picture you'll notice the kitchen is a rather small alcove in the living room with a lowered ceiling; ...
