    Hi. I've just got a new electric oven (plug in rather than hard wire) the hob (gas) has an ignition to light it. We bought a plug that you can wire 4 separate appliances to, and it was used without a problem for the last oven and hob ignition. I've just wired in the new oven and neither the oven or the ignition work.....any ideas?

    Is this a four way extension lead?

    N, it's a single plug that can accommodate 4 appliences.

    Got you now. Not something I would be plugging an oven into.

    It's specifically for "large/heavy duty" things.

    What size fuse is in the plug, it needs to be 13A or it will blow.

    It looks broken as the live pin has been pushed in unless a missing fuse has caused this. I wouldn't be using that an accident waiting to happen.

    Never seen one of those before, think I'd bin it.

    Dread to think how those cables are connected the black one looks like 2.5.

    The 2 pins at the bottom of the triangle, should be the same length.
    The fuse is connected to the short pin, and there is probably meant to be something in the cover to prevent it from sinking like that.
    Is the cover on the right way round?

    You know? I haven't even noticed that....there was a lose piece that had fallen out in the plug and I couldn't find a place to put it, I'm guessing it holds the prong in place....

    Can you show a pic of the inside as those cables should not be hanging out like that.

  17. It is also marked with a US standard, but not a BS number.

    Amazon or ebay special.

    Neither. We bought from an electrical supplier.
