New Built-In Oven


Steve Chambers

Recommended Posts

Hi all, Im just fitting a kitchen and would like some advice on wiring a new built in oven.

  • Consumer unit has a didicated cooker trip
  • Outlet blank on wall (never used for cooker) above the gas bayonet socket.
  • Double switch above worktop, Big red switch designated "cooker" and a normal 13amp socket.

I would like to replace the blanked outlet with a single socket for the cooker hood (over gas hob) AND hardwire the new oven to this blanked outlet.

From the advice taken so far, this outlet is 30amp and needs to be 13amp for a built in oven. Is it it just a case of replacing the 30amp trip with a a 13amp? Or is this more complicated?

Regards Steve

If the oven really is 13A or less, double socket, one for oven with 13A fuse, one for hood with 3A fuse.

 

It's a pretty naff way of connecting a cooker hood though.

Get a sparky to do it properly?

To be honest matey from your description it sounds like a lash up in the making.

Where in Hampshire are you?
