Hi whitevan man,

You DO NOT need to inform building control about this as long as it is a like for like swap. So as long as you are swapping one electric oven for another electric oven of the same wattage then you can swap it over your self with no complications.

Ovens normally are wired to a plug and then plugged into a socket, ensure you use heat resistant flex of the the correct amperage as it can get quite warm behind the oven.

I am replacing electric cooker with electric hob and single oven.

Is it OK just to connect the hob to the existing 45A cooker outlet?
Oven can connect by plug to double socket adjacent to oven unit which currently serves fridge.....

Cheers

Scottyboy

Hi scottyboy,

Welcome to the forum.

As you are replacing an electric cooker with a hob and oven and seeing that the oven can be plugged into a socket then you should be ok, however it is a good idea to check that the wire feeding the 45A switch is the correct thickness and that it is protected by the correct ampage fuse at the consumer unit.

I would assume that the wire feeding the old electric cooker is suitable for running your hob, but it is best to check first.

You could always look on the old cooker and find the power consumption in watts, if the hob is equal to or lower than the old cooker then you should be ok!

Good luck

UHM

p.s. don't forget to use heat resistant flex for the oven connection as built in ovens can get quite hot behind.

Who cares about Part P anyway :?:

Most People I know has never heard of it and of the 3 sparks that I know that have heard of it they choose to ignore it and will not join their elitist little club.

Part P is about as popular as the Poll Tax :twisted:
