The World's #1 Vacuum Cleaner Advice, Repair, Discussion & Information Forum
Fitted or molded plugs?It's not law to have a molded plug fitted just a fitted plug that is up to current standards.Manufacturers put molded plug cables on as it is quicker and cheaper than using screw plugs.The Plugs and Sockets etc. (Safety) Regulations 1994 which came into force in Feb 1995 states the requirement is only that a plug that meets the relevant standard is fitted.
What year did the legislation on fitted plugs come into life?
Chargers don't usually need a fuse because the will have a fusible resistor in the circuit board.I know its only a fitted plug not moulded but I'm sure the legislation was before the 90s
