Hi Jim, what colour wires have you got that need refitting - I assume you have just taken the wires off the heater element itself?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sorry about the delay, the colour codes on the wiring is 2xgrey 1black&white 1 brown&white 1red 1blue 1 black 2 light blue.I realise I should have marked them but I thought I would be putting them back on the following day. Thank you very much anyway jim mason

OK jim could you have a look at the rating plate and give me the product code it will start(###) ###-####.... I need the digits after the 432 likely something like 1500a or similar.

the number is *****

OK Jim give me a moment and I'll find the diagrams.

Expert:  bonzaco replied 1 year ago.

OK I am going to do this in simple stages one cable at a time -

you have a terminal block on the back of the appliance close to where the cable comes in. The earth cable should have a tag directly connecting to the case - can you find this?

Expert:  bonzaco replied 1 year ago.

OK straight forward you should have the live and neutral connected to this terminal block - can you confirm which is on terminal 1 of the block and which is on terminal two of the block.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
black is on terminal 1
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
terminal 2 is grey 3is red 4 is empty 5+6 is light blue

My feeling is that we can best solve this with a telephone conversation.
