I am having a new electric induction hob and extractor installed.

I need to run the electrics ready for an electrician to connect up.

When doing some work in the rest of the house I ran a 6mm T&E which i'd intended to use. The kitchen design has changed slightly now and so I need to connect both the hob and extractor to the same radial if this is possible?

Can the 6mm be run to an isolation switch for the hob (which then runs out to a junction box for the hob to be connected up), plus a spur from the hob isolation to another isolation switch for the extractor which would then run up the wall for the extractor to be connected to via a junction box.(hopefully that makes sense)

Basically, I need to find a way to connect both to the same radial as running another will involve undoing an awful lot of work to get back to the consumer unit.

Thanks

You don't mean that do you?

Just say that you are going to wire it up yourself if that is what you are going to do.

I am not the Part P police and do not care if you DIY it as long as you do it properly.

Yes. The extractor fan will of course need a switched fused spur with a 3 or 5 amp fuse in it.

Your junction box could be a cooker connection unit such ashttps://www.scolmore.com/_pdfs/spec_b ... 0Plate.pdf
