    Built in oven wiring

    Electricians

    Hi, I need to replace a built in oven. Can I wire this into a 13amp fused spur? Does the oven need to be less than 3kw?
    The cooker hasn't got its own supply straight from fuse board.
    Thanks

    "Most modern oven’s are fan oven’s they will work off of a 13 amp plug
    They normally come with a plug attached"

    "If the oven hasn’t come with a plug attached, ideally it needs its own supply. You could argue with diversity applied, you could get away with it but 3kw and above, we’d be recommending it’s own circuit."

    "Yes you could and yes it would need to be no more than that. You should test the circuit to make sure it’s also in good enough condition to add the load and that you have enough power etc across all."

    "The original and newer ovens are usually 3Kw in capacity anyway.
    Wiring in off a spur is not a problem at all, but do include a 13A fuse in the spur socket though.
    And also do check and make sure the new oven is less than 3kW"

    "If it's a single oven chances are it's got a plug on it anyway. So can easily be plugged in the kitchen ring main
    A double oven could need it's own supply"
