I would like to install a double oven in place of my single oven. Looking at the specification of the new oven it requires a 32amp fuse.
The oven fuse on my consumer unit is rated 16amps.
My house is 10 years old (countryside development). Whilst not conclusive, would a sparky have installed a cable that would max out at 16 amp, or would he have installed a cable capable of carrying 32amps, albeit installed a 16amp fuse as required by oven manufacturer?
I’m happy to pay a sparky for absolute confirmation, though if from the outset I’m looking at running a new cable in, I’ll likely go fo another single oven.
