WHEN IT COMES TO ELECTRICS I HAVEN'T A CLUE.

BEEN PEEING ABOUT WITH THIS LAMP AND EVENTUALLY GOT IT TO WORK BY BUNGING IN JUST THE BLUE AND BROWN WIRES INTO RANDOM HOLES IN THE SOCKET.

IS THIS SAFE OR DO YOU NEED TO PUT THREE WIRES IN DO YOU KNOW?

THERE'S ONLY THE BLUE AND BROWN AT THE PLUG END !!!

You need a lightbulb moment  :like:

Two wires are live and neutral. There should be a 3amp fuse in the plug.

If it is the original cable, the lamp will be double insulated so no cpc. (earth)


The two conductors go to the two shorter pins on the plug. Brown to the fuse and blue to the other.

THANKS JOHNNY FOR A SENSIBLE ANSWER !!!   jc  THAT IS HOW I'VE GOT THE PLUG AND I'VE RANDOMLY SELECTED TWO OF THE THREE HOLES ON THE BRASS LAMPHOLDER WITH A BROWN AND A BLUE WIRE WITH HORIZONTAL SWITCH AND IT WORKS BUT I DON'T WANT IT TO BE A FIRE HAZARD EVEN THOUGH IT WORKS !!!

MAKES ME WONDER WHAT THE GREEN AND YELLOW CABLE IS FOR ???

FFS if it has a brass lampholder it must have the brown wire in the correct connection or the lampholder could be live when on

Also, it should be earthed. Which is the green and yellow wire. The flex should be three core.

Buy a torch or get Jonnie to sort it.



Cost you a hand or blow job.

Double insulated lamps do not have brass lampholders.

The problem is if the lamp does need 3 core wire, and has been fitted with two core wire, then it won't be earthed.

With a brass lamp holder, I would guess it needs all three wires.

I DID NEED THE EARTHED WIRE AFTER PICKING A FEW PEOPLE'S BRAINS AND WAS TOLD LIKE MENTIONED THERE WAS A POSSIBILITY OF ELECTROCUTION WITHOUT IT.

THANKS FOR THE HELP AND JOB NOW COMPLETED BY AN AMATEUR.

SO YOU SHOULD STILL BE GETTING POSTS FROM ME IN THE FUTURE !!!

Had to wire a plug for part of an exam decades ago  , just a length of flex and a plug, each wire had to be a different certain length and the the bare wires had also to be a certain length .
3 minutes with someone watching with a stopwatch .
Hard going that
