cooker switch


maccarooni

Question

maccarooni

evening all.

I wonder if any one can point me in the right direction.

I'm after a cooker switch with socket, however the norm is a 2 gang box with switch / socket side by side. What I'm looking for is 2 gang box upright with switch / socket one over the other. in my haste i got a n MK k5011 but this goes into a large back box. Customer wont want me chasing in a bigger box as she dosen't really want to replace the existing cracked one. Any help would be gratefully recieved.

The original cooker switch was installed in 1974. I have never personally seen one like this and the customer needs a socket incorporated as its is the only socket on one side of the kitchen.

Thats the one but I am sure the switches don't stick out that much but I suppose they could.

if the customer wants it then they can pay for it. do it your way or dont do it. i would put in a new 2g back box if they dont like it balls to them. customers are always wanting to dictate the job,

or just fit the one I linked?

You are working for the customer! You have to work to there specification within the regs and what is practical.

Have a beer and chill! Guiness Drink

Yes they do as they are paying for it. As i said at the start the customer HAS to have it as the old one is cracked so obviously, I am trying to do it as cheaply for her as possibly. Fortunately i havent got the attidude of do it my way or i'm bnot doing it. Just remember a happy customer will tell people how good you are and an unhappy one will tell alot more people.

Thanks for the links batty / apache
