I'm looking for one -
Some of the european appliances come with the 3 phase connection which we simply link across, for use here.
Anyone know of one pls ?

Or maybe a normal single phase one, with reduced power consumption setting.... or similar ?
Very little amperage to play with....

Ady, I can't think of a recent one which was not suitable for three phase. The diagram is embossed onto the back of the case, other instructions useless:
stamped into the steel casing on the underside
3/1n
2/1n
1/1n

with embossed line diagrams

Just a case of removing the links, which are also shown on the embossed diagrams. latest was mades by Stoves I think, and came from Howdens.

I reckon get down to Comet quick before they close them all, and turn a few over.

The two phase one was a Howdens Lamona.

The double oven that came with it had details of the required torque settings for the terminations, so being a anorak I got out the torque screwdriver I bought at the Coventry Elex show to ensure it was correctly installed.

I put the oven on to burn it in, as I had not fitted the microwave above it in the cabinet when the customer brought me a cup of tea and a cream cake she went to put them on the shelf above the oven, but said she that she couldn't as the shelf was to hot, then touched the knobs and said the were to hot to hold. I hadn't noticed the case cooling fan had stopped working and only the oven fan was operating. So the repair man came to sort it out, the fan had fell off its motor spindle, perhaps I'm not the only person who needs a torque screwdriver to work out a oven!

See Andy
All that 'sticking around to check it works' only makes you look unprofessional with a melted cream cake in your mouth
lol
