Agree +1NickB said:You would need a dedicated 15A GPO to run that. Do not try to use a standard GPO - you risk melting it. If you have the correct sized cable a sparky should be able to install a 15A GPO on the existing circuit, or run another specifically.
The only test button is on the RCD for the entire house, which I checked first. The individual cct breakers have no test button.Ducatiboy stu said:Did you hit the test button on your cct breaker. This should be done regularly to stop the mecanism sticking.
In all honesty, probably only 1-2 minutes. Perhaps there's the flaw in my test?QldKev said:How long did you leave it running for? Allowing a standard C-curve you would get 1 minute running 20amp on a 16amp breaker.
Thanks Kev. Sage counsel.QldKev said:Yep, some circuit breakers have different curves, C is the standard household one. It will say C16 for a C curve 16amp, etc on the breaker to know what curve it is.
At the end of the day it's 16amp and you need more, so a decent heavy duty cord from the house will do the trip. I run my 3V via extension cords. Don't use the cheap 10amp ones for long runs with big loads. The extra heavy duty tradesman is a 15amp cable with 10amp plugs, and is great for this type of work.
Yep, thats what I got installed as well... the 32A breaker has already paid off with upgrading to a 15A point for my BM.Ducatiboy stu said:I would run a 32A cct to a sub-mains board to the shed/brewery. That will cover just about everything you need to run
