Any Electricans on FISO?

Post by Ashers » 18 Aug 2018, 10:38

I’ve stepped on the plug of my Hoover Vacuum and have broken the pins in the plug.

I have gone to change the plug and noticed that the plug is moulded and doesn’t have screws to remove.

I then decided to cut the plug off the end and fix a new plug in to realize that there is no Earth wire.

I’ve google this and read that the plug which was on there would have been self earthing / Hoovers are now double insulated.

So my question is, can I just put a normal plug on the vacuum with no Earth? Or do I need to change the whole cable with a Moulded plug attached?

Try spoogehead (Steve L).

You may remember he chaired Telegraph Fiso £25 league for several seasons.

Couldn't possibly have been a request from a Spurs source if they were only asking for an electrician. :wink:

True, but could be Celtic - apparently they spunked a few million on lights while not having the cash for players.

Google sez: 'Double insulated, no earth required
Make sure you use the same sized (Amps) fuse as in the old plug though'

Nice to see the Villa forums are as diverse as FISO.
