    "Nothing to stop you from disconnecting it yourself however what are you doing getting a new one? if so this may need a bigger cable or to be put on a new circuit as all ovens are not the same in terms of how much electricity they use so will need to be installed by a professional"

    "By isolating off at the cooker switch the answer is yes.

    Getting involved with cabling answer is no."

    "You can if you are qualified. If you are not then you can't do it unless the oven is connected in to a separate plug supplied from the fuse switch above the work top (switch off the fuse switch first)"

    "No
    Correct procedure for disconection, correct fuse type and rating. Correct size cable for the new cooker, correctly terminated switches outlet plates have no overheating signs..... Unless it's a 3 pin plug get a sparky, the moment you don't respect electricity is the moment it will give you a nice bolt!"

    "Almost all electrical work needs to be carried out by a competent person. While it's a simple task you should ask yourself if you believe you are competent to do this. Nobody on this forum can assess your competence really"

    "I would get an electrician to carry out the work, they can test the outlet to make sure it is safely isolated, test it to make sure correctly earthed and ensure everything is connected back after removal."
