Last year I bought and fitted a Baumatic ceramic hob. I had no probs at all
with the standard, traditional connections of cooker switch and cooker
cable but when it came to the connection at the hob it was a bit of a
puzzle I never resolved satisfactorily,.
Though I did mange to get the wires to lodge quite firmly, it was a trial
and error affair, as the U shaped brass plates and screws of the connector
seemed a bit remote from the cable ends.
As there were no apparent entry holes large enough for the wire ends I
pushed them behind the brass plates and tightened the screws. I had a heck
of a job getting the neutral to grip.
Anyway, during recent decorating the cable got snagged and the hob went on
the blink. (The neutral wire became dislodged).
Can anyone please direct me to some clear instruction on how to wire one of
these type of connectors properly?
