I currently have a electric oven and a gas hob. I am having the gas capped off and replacing the gas hob with an electric one however, i'm not sure how to wire the thing up. Am i right in thinking that the circuit would be from the cooker switch to the oven and then just loop off to the hob?
Your electric hob should be on a circuit all on its own due to the high current it needs. You should have a feed to a double pole switch near the cooker that switches an electric cooker face plate only..
The oven should be taken from either a switched spur off the ring main or have its own circuit depending on its rating.
