Never hang anything weighing more than 1/4 pound directly from plaster board. Purchase a "stud finder" from a hardware store. Use it to find a stud to support the weight.

    that is not necessarily correct as you can hang picture frames that are a lot more than 1/4 pound off a plaster wall- understand the stud, batton finder.

How to put a raw plug into a plaster wall?

It's actually quite easy, but a few simple rules need to be followed. The drill size will depend on the size of the plug to be used. The type of drill bit will depend on whether it is a wall with plaster on it or plasterboard, which will have a cavity behind it. If it is a solid wall, use a masonry drill, on hammer setting if you have it. For a plasterboard wall a wood or HSS drill bit will do the job. Once you have drilled the hole, push plug in as far as you can, then tap it flush with a hammer. Job done.

Can you put 7 kilo speakers on brackets on plasreboard

Yes BUT you need to locate the stud so you can fix the speaker to the stud and not directly on the plasterboard.
Tap the plasterboard with your knuckle and the sound will change when you locate a stud.

The switches that control the fan (on ,off and speed) on my Miele DA249 ventilation system have been pushed in and do not work. The light switch is ok. Can you give me a part number for the fan controls...

Draw or photo the button order.Remove flue canopy. Unplug the control cable. You require the bracket kit from Miele. unclip the circuit board from the broken retainer. Do not lose the buttons. Clean the inside of the cover beyond throughly with metho and then sand paper. Assemble the button assembly and then with contact glue, fit in place. Use the foil tape to reinforce the bracket along each side.

I need to change the light

Miele lights are factory specific with odd power ratings not available in the US. Call Miele Parts Support for a replacement bulb. It is a consumable item no warranty. They may charge up to 70.00 dollars for a halogen bulb so be ready!
