Replacing electric oven - importance of 13amp versus 16amp
Posted by John Aldam, on
I am having my Consumer Unit brought up to date, because I wish to replace my electric oven and I believe some ovens require 16-amp rather than 13-amp. The cooker has a separate cable from a switched block on the wall of the kitchen back to the consumer unit, separate from any 13amp ring main. My question is: how do I know whether the existing cooker supply cable and the (not yet installed) new consumer unit are OK for a 16-amp cooker?
