Kitchen Reno


Does anyone know if simply switching off mains electricity at the switchboard allows me to safely remove the wiring from the back of the oven and the hob? I'm uncertain as to whether that is sufficient to isolate the unit.

Cheers

Is it safe to assume you are from the UK? An electrician will be along soon---Mike----

Turn off the mains, check with volt meter.

If after turning off the mains the oven and hob no longer function then it is should be safe to disconnect them.
