Does any one know whether the regulation that the oven control unit has to be within 2m of the oven relates to max. [b]cable[/b] length or if it's as the crow flies?
I'm fitting an oven and electric hob over in an island in the new kitchen. I propose to site the control unit on the wall nearest to the island, which is at a distance of approx. 1.5m away. But the cable has to come from the control unit, down the wall, in conduit under the yet-to-be-screeded floor, and up inside the kitchen unit of the island. So the total cable run will longer than 2m.
Thanks for any advice.
