Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.
Hiya,
OK, is it a box or a metal panel you remove?
Can you post a picture of the connection so I can see which type you have?

Can you post the model number of the appliance please?

Thanks

Hiya,
Thanks for that.
There's no picture in the service manuals but, it does look like you slacken the screws, insert the wire below the screw, fit the link in place and tighten the screw.

Do you have this type with links?

Thanks

no its just bare wire

Hiya,
No, not the wire I'm asking about.
I imagine you have 6mm twin and earth wire.
You simply twist and make a hook in the end of the wire to go around the screw.

I'm asking about the links that go between the screws on the back of the cooker, as shown in the user manual.

Thanks
