    Uneven patio slabs for new rabbit shed

    Hi. Awaiting a shed for the kid's rabbits to place on an existing concrete slab patio; 11x6ft. It's on a slight slope and the slabs are uneven. As I am clueless with these sorts of things, I simply lifted the slabs, redistributed the soil to level and thought that would do. Naturally, two...

    Honeywell ST9100C programmer/thermostat wiring problems

    Thanks. I linked the thermostat wires as you described and the central heating now works via the programmer. Therefore, it appears to be a faulty thermostat. I'll order one and let you know how I get on with that. Thanks again for all your help.

    Honeywell ST9100C programmer/thermostat wiring problems

    Thanks. I checked and the wire is correctly in terminal 4 of the boiler. However, on testing it with a Fluke VoltAlert, it indicated no current. The new programmer powers up, clicks and lights up as it should and as the previous one did. However, the central heating still doesn't switch on...

    Honeywell ST9100C programmer/thermostat wiring problems

    Hi. Issue was resolved; however, a new issue. The central heating would not switch on via the programmer. However, we still had hot water. A central heating engineer attended and linked this out in the boiler so we could use the central heating. I've bought a new programmer (exactly the same...

    Wiring a new oven

    Thanks. This is causing the confusion. None come with a lead/plug so I'm thinking do they all need hardwiring? However, as I've an oven switch on it's own circuit, can a lead/plug be attached to the oven and plugged in to the double socket considering it's connected to the cooker switch?

    Kitchen laminate flooring sliding around

    Thanks. No idea of brand. 3 to 4 boards of normal size move around. No others glued. It doesn't have to be perfect, just not move. There is underlay so just want to glue boards together
