All...need a bit of help. I have purchased a bosch oven that needs to be hard wired on the oven part. but I'm not sure what type of power cord /cable connector i need to make the oven work so any pointers would be appreciated. Pic of the back of the oven is attached. Many thanks. Nawaz

What rating is the oven?

......and what do you intend to connect the other end of the cable to?
Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

Thanks, these are specs from the installation sheet..

Electrical connection rating (W) : 2350
Current (A) : 13
Voltage (V) : 220-240
Frequency (Hz) : 50; 60
Plug type : fixed connection, no plug


I was planning connecting the other end of the cable to a standard 13A socket (the socket my old electric oven was plugged into). I thought it would be simple job of taking the old one out and putting the new one in - but unfortunately Bosch had other ideas about making connecting an oven an easy task!

2350 W should be pluggable (if that's a word). However MI's always should be followed. A 13 Amp switched fused unit fitted down t one of these https://www.diy.com/departments/crabtre ... icamp=recs
(picked at random) and 2.5mm sq twin and earth should be more than man enough. Unless the MI's say you need a different type of cable.

(MI's = Manufacturers Instructions)

thanks for the reply - already have the switched fused unit & wall socket fitted. I can't work out what type of connector i need to buy and where from so i can connect the other end of the cable to the oven unit.

Use 1.5mm 3 core flex and a 13A plug.

Yes, understood - how is the 1.5mm 3 core flex cable attached to oven.

Does it have to be soldered on? Or can I purchase a type of connector where I can screw the 3 cable ends in and attach to oven (this is my preference).

Thanks

You don't need a connector. Those "studs" are the connectors. You loosen (don't undo completely) the screw, lift up the little plate behind the screw, poke the wire in under the plate*, tighten the screw up and give the wire a tug. If it comes out you have done it wrong.

You obviously strip the end of the wire about 1cm.

As only me says you need 1.5mm flex and a plugtop.

I would suggest This flex (You can buy just 2m) and this plug

You must have a decent plug if you don't it will over heat
