Hi,

Just had a new NEFF oven delivered but was told that because my old oven is a "plug in" and less than 1 kilowatt, I couldn't have the NEFF installed as it is more than 1 kw and they took it away.

Trouble is, the wonderful people at Comet who told me this, cannot tell me which ovens I can have!!

Does anyone out there have any idea??

Thanks!

Hi Katherine,

welcome to the forum.

You can have up to a 3kw oven running from a 13 amp plug.

3kw fan heaters can be purchased and be plugged into any socket, ovens are exactly the same.

I am struggling getting on here at the mo. as I am changing internet service providers and my old ISP has cut me off! Answering this post has taken me 3 attempts!

Someone else in a previous post has had similar trouble with Neff or perhaps it was smeg?

I cannot see any single electric oven being more than 3kw!

Hope this helps

chez

rule of thumb is that if it is a single under oven then it can be plugged in, if it is a double then it needs a dedicated supply.

You can run up to 3kW of a plug

power = voltage x amps

hence

250 (max volts) x 13 (Amps load) = 3.25kW (power)

If your heart is set on the Neff! could you not get a dedicated cooker supply installed?
