    Timed humidstat fan running oddly (split off)

    The fans will be running on the permanent live (brown). So if you measure the switched live (black) to neutral you can confirm that the switched supply and feed from one fan to the other is off, therefore proving that the fan which won't turn off is faulty (or at least the humidistat isn't...

    ZS testing without a No Trip function

    So I can stop panicking after tripping the RCD when using the Fluke for the first time and not look at replacing it then?

    ZS testing without a No Trip function

    Yes it's a 1653, I've only just got it. The later B models have a no trip test function for getting a Zs. I'm just wondering how it differs to what I can do on mine so that I don't go round inadvertently tripping customers RCD while I go round getting a Zs.

    ZS testing without a No Trip function

    Thanks What I'm trying to get my head around is if the Fluke's non trip test function is a totally different function to what my meter has, or if it's just another way of performing a 3 lead low current test as what I don't want to happen is me going round tripping peoples RCD's while trying to...

    ZS testing without a No Trip function

    Thanks again. I would be interested to know what the difference between the 3 lead L-PE test is compared to the later models No Trip test.

    ZS testing without a No Trip function

    The measurement in the 2nd photo was from one of the ring sockets, although the Fluke shows 0v and no PFC when you disconnect the meter from the circuit. Good shout to use the 2 lead test on L-PE, although strange it didn't trip if it's a high current test, which I agree with as it's much...

    ZS testing without a No Trip function

    Thanks gents. I'm new to Fluke and today is the first time I've a chance to use it properly, but I get the F1 setting which toggles between the L-PE 3 wire test and L-N 2 wire test. I suppose my questions are what use is the L-N test when I'm trying to carry out an EFLI test. And why does the 3...

    ZS testing without a No Trip function

    Does anyone know if it's possible to do Zs testing of circuits with the Fluke 1653 below? It's tripping the 30mA RCD when testing the circuits and the meter doesn't have a No Trip test function. Have I bought the wrong meter?

    Hager MCB to RCBO compatibility?

    Thanks gents. I'd ordered the AD107 just before reading the latest comment, but there's plenty of height in the board.

    Hager MCB to RCBO compatibility?

    Does anyone know which RCBO's fit in place of the MT series MCB's? There's already an MTN MCB on the RCD side, but the only spare way is on the non RCD side. Older RCBO's coming up in my searches for a B16 are the AD107, ADB116 & ADN116.

    Second CU, where to mount and what cable to run?

    I would have suggested via an adaptable box like a Wiska, then you can gland & earth the SWA.

    Bulb for Zanussi oven

    Yes, rocky nailed it in one. It's a G9. This should do the job. https://www.toolstation.com/philips-oven-lamp/p91273?store=MH&utm_source=googleshopping&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=googleshoppingfeed&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIqJXo25fw6wIV0-ntCh0s7AThEAQYBCABEgJrrvD_BwE

    Bulb for Zanussi oven

    Sorry, I meant G4, but should pull out like these ones

    Bulb for Zanussi oven

    Looks just like a regular G10 Halogen lamp to me. Should pull straight out, no twisting, although there may be a glass cover over the front.

    Second CU, where to mount and what cable to run?

    You sound clued up, but this is not a DIY job. Should be done by an electrician and is notifiable. Without reading all the way through I'd say your options here could be 16mm SWA from the Henley to the new board running no more than 63A. Or work out the max demand for the loft and do a calc to...

    Installing consumer unit.

    I agree, they are dear. Ideal for tall kitchen cupboards though and the lids will close themselves, unlike the one in the OP.

    Installing consumer unit.

    I'd get neck ache reading off the breakers and looking at the labels. Why not just fit one of these, then at least the customer won't think it's p*ssed.

    Take power from a light switch

    The picture Andy requested should tell if there's a Neutral at the switch. Alternatively it may be an option to explore taking the supply from the light fitting.

    Wiring a second workshop (Advice on consumer units and armoured cable)

    Completely agree. It was more a general idea for the OP without seeing the job. The calcs will confirm what is really required as it's difficult to get a feel for the job with limited info to go on. Re my suggestion of feeding from the main board via an RCBO. I am more of a belt & braces kind...
