    Installing Nest 3rd Gen Thermostat -Worcester Bosch Greenstar 32 CDi

    Hi Johnmdc, Missed your edit last night regarding the pre-heat function. I've checked the boiler manual and it appears the boiler has an eco-mode (enabled by default) which disables the pre-heat function (as well as others things I imagine). I've checked the boiler and it appears to be in...

    Installing Nest 3rd Gen Thermostat -Worcester Bosch Greenstar 32 CDi

    Hi All, I'm looking to replace my existing thermostat (Worcester Bosch MT10RF-Mechanical RF thermostat) with a nest 3rd gen and wondered if you could offer some advice on the wiring of it? 1. I'd like to disable the existing receiver from the boiler which I plan to do, by removing the ribbon...

    Shower Circuit

    Cheers for the input securespark. Well whilst I was hoping this was the case, I'm starting to think otherwise. I've had a look in the CU this afternoon, to see if extending the neutral cabling is necesarry, or if with a little thought and time whether it can be run a different way, avoiding...

    Shower Circuit

    Ok i'll have a proper look at the job tomorrow. I'm not sure if this shower install was a DIY job carried out by the previous owner of my house or if this is an "electricians" work. I'd like to think it is a DIY job and nobody has been paid to leave it like this..... Thanks for the link and...

    Shower Circuit

    I'll try and trace the cable route, I know the cable comes through the ceiling in the bath room and then down the wall. The loft has got fibre glass insulation, if the cables clipped direct in air, I guess your saying were ok, but if it's surrounded by thermal insulation, refer to the table for...

    Shower Circuit

    [/url] Ah right, thanks for taking the time to explain, that makes sense now.Would you agree looking at the pic the feed cable is nearer 6mm than 10? I think the best bet is to fit an MCB of the correct rating and replace the damaged neutral connector block, with one of the correct rating...

    Shower Circuit

    Hi, Just taking this figure and linking back to my question, wouldn't you expect the circuit breaker (32A) at present to trip? I know were using 230 for our calculations, so the actual voltage may be higher, causing the current to be lower, but still the circuit I'd have thought was...

    Shower Circuit

    Hello, Once again thanks for the replies. Yup I was having a blonde moment there! Just looking in the book it shows: Pre 1995 (240V) +6%/-6% 1/1/95 onwards (230V) +10%/-6% Just going to have another look over these replies and decide a POA. Thanks

    Shower Circuit

    Hi Both, Thanks for the replies. [/url] Yes I was thinking more along the lines of 10mm and a 40A~ breaker. Yep that's the equation I used and just rounded rounded up, then did the same for the 9.5. I guess it's a range (8.7kW-9.5kW) depending on the setting you have it on. Think it's...

    Shower Circuit

    Hi All, I've got a problem with my shower circuit. Inside my CU there's a 30A terminal block which extends the Neutral connection from the flat T&E coming from pull cord/shower to the neutral bar inside the CU. This terminal block has burnt up and in the late stages of melting..... Before...

    Extending a final ring circuit

    Are you suggesting i just run a T&E from existing socket too new socket? If so and don't think i'm being arrogant, afterall i'm the one asking for help here. Would this mean i'd have effectively 3 cables in my existing socket (supply from previous socket in ring, supply to next socket on ring...

    Could you just clarify what you mean by standard spur? I'd rather ask than presume :) Cheers

    Extending a final ring circuit

    Thanks for the reply! The floorboards have laminate flooring over the top, so not ideal really.
