    New electric oven conection

    Electricians

    I would like to change my old electric oven for a new one, however my old one is connected directly into a fused connection unit, while the new one is coming with a plug. How much will it cost to change it, please?

    "I’d say roughly £30 as it’s just a straight forward changeover"

    "you have to make the original socket outlet safe by disconnection the cables .
    Also fitting a new socket outlet to take the plug from the cooker, usually under the worktop so will involve routing the cable from a different source

    £100"

    "It depends who does it. Companies like John Lewis insist on certain criteria such as a special device called an RCD, and a reliable earth. If those are in place then I think they charge around £85. They will refuse if you don’t have those in place.

    Someone private like myself(Electrician), will still check for safety but we will usually find a work around solution. If it’s a standard connection you would expect to pay around £50-£85."

    I would imagine an electrician would charge around £65 for this."

    "Hi,

    A socket can be installed to replace the fused connection unit. Your cooker will/should be on it's own circuit, connected directly to your consumer unit so fitting a socket is a straight forward job.

    You should expect to pay about £80.00 to £90.00 for this work if your existing set up is as it should be.

    Regards,
    David"

    "An Electrician could either replace the fused connection unit with a single socket or cut the plug off the new oven and connect it into the fused connection unit-once the old unit has been removed of course.
    The charge would be a minimum call-out fee £50-£80 depending on how far the Electrician would have to travel."

    "An easy job for an Electrician, should only cost £30 supply and fit. The correct wiring should already be there, simply changing to a plug to adapt to the new cooker."
