CONNECTING TO THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY

Warning: This appliance must be earthed.
Do not earth this appliance to the gas
supply piping.
Connect to 230 - 240V AC supply only.
The electrical connection should be made using
a double pole isolating switch (cooker socket)
with at least 3mm contact separation in all poles.
The cable must have conductors of sufficiently
high cross-sectional area to prevent overheating
and deterioration.
We recommend you use a new length of 6mm
twin core and earthed cable to ensure your
safety.
Make connection as shown in Fig 5 by
proceeding as follows:-
Preform wires to the appropriate shape to suit
fitting into the mains terminal block.
Strip inner insulation on wires using wire
strippers.
Twist the bared wires using pliers.
Cut bared wires 10mm away from the end of the
inner insulation. Where uninsulated Earth wires
are used ensure they are suitably sheathed to
leave 10mm bare wire to fit into the terminal.
Clamp bare wires into the relevant terminal (Fig.
5.) and check they are held by tugging each one
in turn.
Ensure all screws are securely tightened.
Clamp the mains cable securely ensuring 5mm of
the outer insuation is inside the terminal block
and that the wires are not taut but not so slack as
to cause any fouling.
Connect the remaining end of the mains cable to
the appliance to the appliance point / junction
box.
Place fuse / miniature circuit breaker in circuit
and switch on at mains.
NOTE: HOUSE CIRCUIT
Earth leakage / continuity tests must be carried out
before the appliance is connected to the mains
supply and re-checked after fitting.
