    I have a thermostat going to a boiler, all destructions in French, the book has the cable labelled as L and S presumably L = live and S= neutral bearing in mind that in France the neutral is live I believe. Can anyone confirm this please

    Maybe a false presumption

    Instruction for a French machine's power connection

    une borne de câble sous tension, une borne de ligne neutre et une borne de câble de mise à la terre.

    borne = terminal

    câble sous tension = LIVE

    ligne neutre = Neutral

    Thank you for that. So I could look at the cable going into the pcb and deduce what they are from the cable colour presuming that its wired up correctly which if you look at the central heating forum leads me onto the crux of the problem.
