It’s a good idea to check plugs regularly. Plugs and their cables can be damaged with use. Here’s how to check the common, square-pin 13-amp plug used in all modern appliances such as hairdryers, vacuum cleaners and microwaves.
With the plug removed from the socket, check the cable.
There should be no joints and no repairs with insulating tape.
Then check the plug
For plugs that did not come fitted to the appliance, check that the cable is connected correctly:
Remove the plug from the socket, and remove the cover.
Replace the cover securely.
