Frequently asked questions

Can I install my own electric cooker?

You need to be a certified electrician otherwise, you should not try installing an electric cooker on your own. Your electric cooker is a big appliance that should be used every day and when you try to install it yourself, you have the chances of getting shocked or severely injured. With an incorrect installation, you can actually create a fire hazard.

An experienced electrician knows how to carry out the job in the right way. You will feel more confident in your ability to use the cooker in a safe way. You will also get the certificate to authenticate that the electric cooker had been installed in a safe way.

How can I prepare for the installation of an electric cooker?

There are several things to be done before your technicians arrive for the smooth installation. Make sure you have sufficient space in the kitchen so that there is no problem in installing your cooker at the right place. There has to be ample room to spare behind and on all the sides of the cooker so that it is properly ventilated. Make sure you clean up any flammable materials which are above the space for the cooker.

How much time will it take to install an electric cooker?

If you have hired an experienced professional for getting the job done, installing your new electric cooker should require just one hour. There are some cases when it might be close to two hours in case there have been some issues with the appliance or the wiring. You can ensure that the job should be done quickly by following the instructions on preparing your electric cooker installation London.

What type of socket will I require for my electric cooker?

The size fuse you require to operate your cooker will differ based on the cooker you have. If you have a less powerful cooker that uses 2.99KW or less than that, then you will need a 13-amp socket. But if you have something that consumes 3KW or more, you will need a 32-amp socket.

What kind of cable do I require for my electric cooker?

Most electric cookers are available with the right kind of cable in the package. If your cooker did not come with a cable, then you need to buy one which is almost 1.5 meters long. It has to be reasonably thick which is either 6mm or thicker than that and of course, heat-resistant. The cable must have different wires and you will usually find three where one is with a live current, another with a neutral current, and the last one carries away residual current.

What type of isolating switch will I need for my electric cooker?

You will be getting two options for the isolating switches and these are – a double pole and a single pole. Both will help to keep you safe and protected during a short circuit. In other words, you need not worry for getting shocked.

A single pole switch will shut off live current in the wire while a double pole switch will shut off both live wire and neutral wire. This is extremely important as the neutral wire can sometimes become energized with the live wire. It is suggested to go for double pole switch as it is comparatively a safer option and you need not worry about residual electrical shocks.
