Cooker Replacement - Advice


Hi

I am in the UK and just moved into a house. We brought an electric cooker with us and i have wired this into the existing switched cooker outlet. Is this something that i, as the homeowner and DIY'er, os allowed to do or do you have to be qualified to do this. All i did was install this new cooker into an existing circuit?

thanks

Hey there
Were mostly american with some good old Canadians on here, so you will have to speak english. What in the world is a cooker that is not an english word.

I am assuming it is an oven and over here oven are not switched. Other then that i have no real answer for you.

By the way I am just giving you a hard time on your english, i don't mean anything bad at all. I am sure some of our words make no sense to you, like football a game where the foot rarely touches the ball.

The "official" rule is that hard wiring - no plug, requires an electrician. However, if I had a penny for everyone wired by an individual my fortune would rival Bill Gates!
