I'm currently ripping out the kitchen and replacing with new units. I have an electric oven which runs on a 13 amp fused plug. I also have a gas hob which is powered by a 3 amp plug.
I intend to hard wire these into a 32 amp cooker/ plug socket combined to make the appearance nicer
The existing double socket has been replaced with the socket/ cooker switch and the socket is now live with the existing wiring from the double.
As the wiring from the hob is not long enough I have used a junction box to connect the wires from the hob and cooker together. Would it be okay to use 2.5mm T&E cable to run the cable to the cooker switch?
I have used the cooker and hob on this set up and it appears fine although I'm not sure about whether it will stand the test of time, and I don't want any fire hazards in the future...
Would I be better to use 6mm cable instead as the feed from the switch and replace the junction box with a cooker outlet plate?
Advice would be much appreciated....
