Electrical connections
Any electrical work required to install
this cooker should be carried out by a
qualified electrician or competent person, in
accordance with the current regulations.
THIS COOKER MUST BE EARTHED.
The manufacturer declines any liability
should these safety measures not be
observed.
This cooker is designed to be connected to a
230-240V AC 50Hz electrical supply.
Before switching on, make sure the electricity
supply voltage is the same as that indicated on
the cooker rating plate.The rating plate is located
on the oven frame.
The cooker is supplied with a 3 core flexible
supply cord  incorporating a 13amp plug fitted. In
the event of having to change the fuse, a 13amp
ASTA approved (BS 1362) fuse must be used.
Should the plug need to be replaced for any
reason, the wires in the mains lead are coloured
in accordance with the following code:
Green and Yellow         
 
  
- Earth
Blue                              
    
- Neutral
Brown                            
 
- Live
-  Connect the green and yellow (earth) wire to
the terminal in the plug which is marked with
the letter 'E' or the earth symbol 
 or
coloured green and yellow.
-  Connect the blue (neutral) wire to the
terminal in the plug which is marked with the
letter 'N' or coloured black.
-  Connect the brown (live) wire to the terminal
in the plug which is marked with the letter 'L'
or coloured red.
NOTE:  The earth wire should be about 2 cm
longer than the live and neutral wires.
Upon completion there must be no cut, or stray
strands of wire present and the cord clamp must
be secure over the outer sheath.
A cut off plug inserted into a 13 amp
socket is a serious safety (shock) hazard.
Ensure that the cut off plug is disposed of
safety.
Before connecting check that:
• The plug used for connection is easily
accessible when the appliance is installed.
Permanent Connection
In the case of a permanent connection, it is
necessary that you install a double pole switch
between the cooker and the electricity supply
(mains), with  a minimum gap of 3mm, between
the switch contacts and of a type suitable for the
required load in compliance with the current
electric regulations.
The switch must not break the yellow and green
earth cable at any point.
Ensure that the cooker supply cord does
not come into contact with surfaces with
temperatures higher than 50 deg. C .
