UK Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
So should I assume you removed the wires without noting where they went?
OK likely hood of getting a wiring diagram from Neff is next to zero. Do you have a multimeter or mains tester?
You'll have to leave it with me for a while whilst I see if I can beg a diagram of someone.
I did not ask you to pay any extra money and obviously if you are a subscriber you wont anyway. On the second point do I have the expertise, probably not I've only been doing it for 30 years, but of course those years taught me no to take off anything without marking it down first. So lets come at it from another angle - you have no test equipment, no mains tester or multimeter. no means of saying whats live or not and you're in a hurry. Perhaps at this point it would be conducive for me to opt out and let someone else deal with your query. Rudeness can be a two way street.
OK what we need is some means of establishing which wire does what, now this is a little of a balancing act, if you call out Neff there is a callout but if you buy a cheap multimeter it will cost you around £5 and between us we can then reconnect you up and you still get to keep the multimeter, What I dont want you to do is connect up the element incorrectly and blow up on of the facia pcbs, So firstly beg steal or borrow (or even buy) a test meter and come back to me when you have it to hand, I break for about an hour and a half at 1pm but then Im back.
All we want is the ability to check for a mains voltage and if it has a continuity tester more the better.
OK heading off will be back on in about two hours.
Have you managed to get hold of a meter?
Thank you for letting me know.
