spur from cooker for light


Postby helicon » Sun Mar 16, 2008 12:23 pm

I am repacing my kitchen units and have bought plug in lights for fixing under my wall cupboads. On two walls I can use a spur as normal,but the wall unit on the cooker wall is positioned above the combined cooker switch and socket with no other ring main socket available.
Can I run a fused spur from the socket side of the cooker switch? Any advice would be appreciated.

Can the cooker supply be used? In most cases yes. Can you do it. In most cases no. It comes under Part P unless in Scotland and even if you are it should be tested to see if suitable and you are unlikely to have test sets required. I would advise RCD I do remember as a child of about 10 sticking my fingers in the hole where my Dad had removed the bulb because the switch was faulty and it would not turn off. I only did it once.

Hi Eric Thanks for the information.- The light that i propose using fits under the wall cupboard and is 10w-12v with transformer and separate switch. Does this information change anything?
