13amp fused plug, to change a fuse in this type of plug use an
A.S.T.A. approved fuse to BS 1362 type and proceed as follows:
1.Remove the fuse cover (A) and fuse (B).
2.Fit replacement 13A fuse into fuse cover.
3.Refit both into plug.

The fuse cover must be refitted when changing a fuse and if the
fuse cover is lost the plug must not be used until a correct
replacement is fitted.
Correct replacement are identified by the colour insert or the
colour embossed in words on the base of the plug.
Replacement fuse covers are available from your local electrical
store.
Connection to a rewirable plug
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket outlet, then it
should be cut off and disposed of in order to avoid a possible
shock hazard should it be inserted into a 13A socket elsewhere.
A suitable alternative plug should then be fitted to the cable.
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the
following code:
BLUE - “NEUTRAL” (“N”)
BROWN - “LIVE” (“L”)
GREEN AND YELLOW - “EARTH” (“E”)
1.The GREEN AND YELLOW wire must be connected to the
terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter “E” or by
the Earth symbol
2.The BLUE wire must be connected to the terminal which is
marked with the letter “N” or coloured black.
3.The BROWN wire must be connected to the terminal which is
marked with the letter “L” or coloured red.
For the Republic of Ireland only
The information given in respect of Great Britain will frequently
apply, but a third type of plug and socket is also used, the
2-pin, side earth type. In this case, the wire which is coloured
