Step by Step Guide on How to Wire a Plug
Step 1: Use the wire strippers to strip off the end of the wire cable to be connected into the plug. Strip off at least 2-3 centimeter of the white coverage leaving only the three internal wires.
Step 2: Using your screwdriver, loosen the screws at the center of the plug on the side where the three pins are located.
Step 3: After loosening the screws, take off the back of the plug.
Step 4: Now, get the end of the white wire you stripped, and separate the three cables so each one can be moveable from one end to another.
Step 5: With your wire strippers, strip off the end of the three stripped wires (blue, brown and yellow-green), and making the copper inside to be visible.
Step 6: Now, gently put the three wires through the cable grip with some part of the thick white cable along, then, tighten the cable grip on the thick white cable.
Step 7: Loose the screws on top the holes and pass the wires into the holes, making sure it gets good contact with the metals.
Step 8: The (Neutral) wire with blue color goes into the screw hole at the bottom left corner of the plug, and you clip it in with the screw.
Step 9: The (Live) wire with the Brown color goes through the hole at the right corner that is connected to the fuse, and then you clip it in.
Step 10: The (Earth) wire having the yellow-green color will now pass through the hole at the middle top of the plug and clip it in with the screw.
Step 11: Finally, after clipping in the screws and making sure they are tightened, put the plug cover back and then screw it again with the nuts.
