    Hi, I am trying to disconnect my electric doorbell from the consumer unit. Can I pull out the fuse? I have tried after turning mains off) but it won't come out? (Pic attached)
    Any help appreciated thanks!

    That's a transformer, not a fuse. It won't remove from the consumer unit without opening the consumer unit and physically removing it from the mounting rail, then you must have a compliant blanking plate to replace it with.

    Opening the consumer unit will expose live parts even with the main switch off.
