I'm trying to change a plug...


Recommended Posts

But struggling, heres why.....

I snapped the top prong off when putting the fan plug in the socket last night, don't ask me how it just snaped.

Thing is the plugs one of those sealed up ones where there's no screws to take out.

I cut the plug off and but obviously the crimped metal which you put under the screw isn't on the end of the wires anymore, do I need this crimps or can you get away without using them? if not what are these crimps called so I can get some?

And yes I'am a complete and utter electrical doughnut.

I was going to give some amateur electrician advice regarding crimping and connecting plug wires but the thought of Boycie sticking his multimeter leads in sundry orifices has quite put me off. 'http://www.dcfcfans.uk/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wacko' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wacko:' />

Earth wires are there for a reason BTW.

How the hell did you come across this thread, what was you looking for?

What's the problem? It's an open site and if something catches our attention are we not permitted to make comments?

If there is such a thing as old thread alerts is there no way of removing them from the site.

There are those among us who display a healthy curiosity are just plain nosey.
