    My son and daughter in law have just bought a very nice listed building that has had electrical works carried out and certified by a few different electrical contractors. My gripe is the cooker panel switch, connected upside down, IE turn of the cooker main switch and the socket goes off as well, This circuit is certified by a contractor, If they cannot get the simple things correct it makes me wonder. I will be checking it all over for them to make sure its all ok, end of gripe

    Not like me to start a thread true, Been on the poorly side of life for a few years now, But old sparky's never die LOL, When i say "approved" they are NICEIC contractors, so its a bit off to say the least

    I suppose it looked fine to the competent guy in the office when he was over signing
    It was also possibly above the skill set of the guy who actually did the test :)
