Bought a table lamp today, std 3 pin plug would not enter switch without forcing it hard.Decided to replace plug with the one off the old lamp and then saw the wiring on the new lamp was not colour coded and the cable was transparent with no colour on at all both wires looking identical.
i know that some folk say it does not matter which way round they go on a 2 core cable set up but surely the manafacturers have to show blue and brown cables on their flex.
I returned the lamp with the retailer saying they would look into it.
have i been to cautious and worried about nothing.
This was a main street retailer not some stall at a market.
