Anyone know about din plugs on smackers ?

Hi we have an issue with a snacked the plug was pulled from the cable and we now don’t know how to wire the plug to fit again all wires we pulled off the plug, anyone know the corrisponding colours? This was my first attempt but it’s really heated the fuse on the battery after 4 seconds so it’s wrong any thoughts ?

Using the configuration I did manage to get the snacker to drop 3 snacks before I could smell a little heat in the fuse. I’m guessing I have some of the wires right and some wrong ?

Well its not single phase with four wires ,,think those style of plugs when out with ark ,all plastic now ,,thats an old aluminium outer case with porcelain pin holders


Hopefully you haven’t damaged anything.
Did you really just hook 4 wires up randomly, and then plug it in and hope for the best. Really?


Fortune favours the brave

4 wires, 4 pins, gives 24 permutations. Very brave in my book.

edit. One is green and yellow, so if you assumed normal convention, you would connect it to the earth pin.
still leaves 6 possible permutations.

It’s all good guys no probs just popped a fuse, the correct way to fix it was to take the plug off the counter side and figure out which wires via colours of wires, but as usual it was last thing at night raining getting dark ect, yes it was a hit and hope in a way , I did find one image on the internet but it wasn’t very good - that was the combination I tried ... all fine now tho
