Wiring for a cooker

Post by 3mfs » Tue Feb 12, 2019 7:33 pm

Hello all. Our old cooker is in need of replacement. The current one is hard wired, but is only a 13A unit, and the fused spur is 13A. The one we are looking at is also a 13A one, but comes supplied with a plug. Is it purely a case of taking the plug off and wiring it in? Or is it not that simple! Our normal electrician is away at the moment so we are a little unsure, so any advice would be gratefully received.

Yes, that's what I'd do.

Believe it or not, removing the plug will invalidate the warranty. Better to convert the outlet plate to a single socket.

It will invalidate the warranty only if you believe in fairies.

Cooker ordered!!!

Hotpoint have told me verbally that plug removal is fine, so fingers crossed it all goes ok. Thanks everyone for the advice.
