    Electric cooker installation cost


    How much would it be to install my cooker? It's brand new and when it arrived the cooker came without a wire.

    "It depends on the length of electric cable required and the time it takes but on average between £40-65. Obviously, this price depends on things like location and any other issues that may occur."

    Firstly the question would be, do you have a cooker connection point where the appliance is going? If so and it's rated correctly at the distribution board then I would think this would cost £100 or more depending on location/parking etc.

    To check if your fuse is the correct size take your appliance wattage(W) and divide is by 230v (V) = Amps (A)
    The wattage should be on the appliance or manual.

    If a new spur would have to be wired from the distribution board a visit for a quote would be advised. I would think it would cost upwards of £250 as this requires a certificate.

    Good luck,
    Best regards."

    "So for a cooker you normally require a 6mm cable from a cooker isolation switch to a back plate at the back of the cooker which the cooker gets wired to a 6mm twin and earth cable. Normally I charge around £85."

    "Approximately £60-£75. Maybe additional costs depending on the electrical circuit and means of protection for said circuit, hard to say exactly without more information."

    "Hello Carla, it depends on what location you are in. On average I would say around £50 - £80 to install an electric cooker. Some electricians have a minimum fee for each job. You're better off submitting a job on this site so local electricians could contact you with a more accurate price."

    "If there is an existing cooker point in place that is of suitable rating it should only be a nominal call out fee of around £60-£100."
