wiring of electric oven


Postby diy rob » Mon Apr 23, 2007 7:28 pm

I am about to fit our new kitchen, the old one I put in over 12 years ago and the oven simply pluged into a 13amp socket with never any problems. I am being told the new oven which has a total connected load of 2.8 KG will need to be hard wired,? Can anyone confirm if I would still be able to plug it into the same 13amp socket.? If not whats involved in order to hard wire.?

Presume you mean 2.8 kWatts?, if so this equates to 12.17 Amps so should work on 13A socket...
If more then you need a dedicated circuit which comes under part p rules and you need to read the projects section ref. part p & decide on cost effectiveness of trying to DIY against G S I (get someone in)

Just about to order the new oven (Neff No B1422). Although reading that it is 2.8KW we have also read somewhere on a web site that the model in question needs a 16amp fuse?
Would this now mean that it will need to run direct from the consumer board (HARD WIRED)? or can I still run off a 13amp fused isolation switch or can I put a higher fuse in the switch?.

Hi Rob, 2800w divided by 230v = 12.17A.....
16A is continental socket type, Neff is Continental make so not Anglesised in hand book, run off 13A fused connection unit as better connection than plug & socket, no probs. regards SPARX

Hi sparx. Again thanks for your fast reply. I will ask now what may seem to be a daft question . Reguarding changing for the fused isolation switch. "Can I still plug into the socket under the counter top and connect the oven to that with a 13 amp plug once that is in place."?
I'm trying to cut down the need to pull tiles off and change wires ect.

Again. "Many thanks"!

Rob.

Yes but make sure all wires properly in plug & TIGHT, as close to max load, regards SPARX
