    The fitting for the under cabinet kitchen lighting has given up the ghost. I went back to Magnet where the kitchen came from but they no longer stock this fitting

    My quick google suggests that it is probably discontinued. The fitting is marked
    WL4002 - 16W and the tube T4 16W.

    My question is can I just buy any other 16W fitting or will it have a different connector to mine thereby requiring a bit of rewiring (if so then I'll get a professional in as I do know enough to play with the mains electrickery )

    Alternatively any ideas where i might still be able to source the same fitment

    TIA

    Unfortunatly every manufacture likes to change the plugs slightlt so they are not inter changeable will try and remmeber to ask if any one else recognises that part number at work tomorrow (in elec wholesale)
    Are your lights linked on to the next or have you only got one cable going into the end?

    Just the one cable but a second light under the other cabinet. Why am I not surprised the fittings are all different Wink

    Thanks for your help on this

    The law regarding electrical work has changed. A "part P" certificate is needed if an electrician is to legally work on any kitchen, bathroom or exterior installation.

    You could unplug and remove the defective fitting and take to an electrical supplier to get a match. Just tell them that it came from a display cabinet in your living room!

    No need to worry about this, certification depends on the type work you are carrying out not what part of the house you are doing it in,and the wholesalers arn't at all interested in whos qualified and whos not we only sell the goods.

    Andrew I will reply tomorrow on availability of the same fitting Smile

    Who do you work for Geoff? Reason I ask is I have previously worked for CEF and AC Electrical (AC got bought out I believe). Just wondering is all as it sometimes is a small world.

    No luck against that part number I'm afraid.

    If your competent enough to wire a plug top I would suggest doing it your self. Its only two wire to connect

    Thanks for this the fitting looks similar although it's impossible to tell from the pic exactly. My connector is a female 2 pin on the lead going into a male 2 pin on the fitting and it's horizontally orientated rather than vertical but that won't make any differecne if its the same fitting - it may be worth my while ringing around to see if any has some old stock knocking about

    Thanks for your time on this
