its so tight when isolated I doubt I could screw a new socket front on it.
so, I have a panel next to it which will be an absolute bugger to get off.
Not sure how to solve this, if any of you have any ideas we would appreciate it!
You need to establish which direction the cable for it comes from, then make a hole, get of the cable, and pull, so you can gain some workable slack.
Once you have this slack, you can either move the socket, or extend the cable.
Consider fitting the new socket to the inside of the cupboard, not to the wall.
Cut the back of the cabinet out, or a portion of it, with a multitool. This can be refitted later. You should then have enough space to do whatever you need to do.
Nothing unusual or wrong with having a socket under a sink.Well i would move that socket anyway.No way should it be under sink where there is a risk of water from sink getting into it.electric and water do not mix.Why was it there in first place?
Best get rid of all electrical items from the kitchen then, lighting included. And bathrooms. And all outside lighting, anything in a garage, shed, garden, and make sure all new electrical appliances only have a 10cm long power cord so they can't possibly be used anywhere near water ever. Extension leads obviously banned, street lighting must be eliminated, along with electric vehicles, electric railways, caravans, petrol stations and the rest.electric and water do not mix
