    Hello - i'm looking for some help getting a new in-wall oven/microwave combo connected. My house was built in 2006. All of my 240V circuits use aluminum wire... This particular circuit, for the oven, uses 8/4 wire (black/red/white/ground). The exact writing on the wire sheathing is...

    Ok - this one has me stumped. My gas oven has been having issues heating up. I set the bake function to 350 degrees and the actual oven (measured via standalone oven thermometer) barely cracks 150 degrees. Initially I just purchased a new temp sensor off of amazon and replaced it. The issue did...

    Hi guys, I wanted to show you my latest project for the country house. The old barbecue disintegrated due to the hot and cold winters of northern Italy. So I decided to build it while saving as much as possible. The total cost was € 250 and many weekends worked. To you the final judgment. I...

    I have a GE electric range. Recently I have been hearing thermostat clicking noises coming from the kitchen. I keep getting up to see if I have left the oven on. It is doing that while it is off? is it possibly haunted, or is there a scientific reason why this would happen?

Also, when I open the oven door, the oven light flashes on and off quickly 5-10 times accompanied by...

    The house I bought came with a range oven wired on a 40 amp breaker with Romex-type 3 wire (2 hots and a neutral). I want to replace this with a separate cooktop and oven situated at the end of a peninsula counter about 4 feet into the center of the kitchen from the wall. To give a better idea...

    I am installing a new single, under counter oven in a guest house addition. There is no stove. It has been pre-wired, about 35 feet, from the panel to a J-box in the wall behind the oven cabinet with 8-3 Stranded romex (black, red, green, bare ground). It's a 3720 watt oven so doing the math...

    Hello, I have read a few threads similar to mine but I just want to post photos of my situation before I rewire my replacement wall oven. Just making sure that I can't reuse what is in the wall. I am replacing a wall oven with a 2013 Kenmore 780.4878. This is a 1969 home, previous oven was...

    Hello, I have wall oven that has ceased to function some time ago. After multiple service tech visits, today they determined that the issue is my house wiring, which I don't completely believe yet and am looking for the thoughts of others. The tech pulled the oven today, disconnected the...

    So I'm back on this wonderful forum after some other helped me fixed my AC about a month back. This time, my parent's oven is burning and it smells like plastic/gun powder. There's no burning from inside the oven just on the backside. There's some obvious areas that have been burning up as you...

    After removing the oven light socket to clear a broken bulb base, I replaced the leads and reinsalled the socket. Being safety minded, I checked the bulb contacts in the receptacle to ensure I hadn't allowed the leads to short. I used an analog ohm meter and was surprised to measure zero ohms. I...

    Hello, I am a 20 year old kid looking for some advice on how to build a oven. Like what kind of heating elements, SSR, and thermostats. I have past experience in general wiring, but do not know how to get all of the parts working together. For example i do not know how to get it temperature...

    My Thermador CM302 oven warms up and then, sometimes shuts itself off and starts beeping repeatedly until I hit the touchpad a few times or open and close the oven. It will sometimes start working again and sometimes not. I think I've isolated the problem to one of two ovens, the top one...

    Hi everyone, My Wolf MWC24 in-wall oven/microwave (manufactured April 2007) is behaving strangely - and it's not the first time this has happened. Essentially what is happening is that the clock on the oven is running fast. Each "minute" is approximately 45 seconds. (The clock on the microwave...

I know a few people have said it better to wire it in 4mm/6mm incase a differemt cooker etc is ever put...

    I have a fan assisted oven which draws about 12A maximum but the nearest socket outlet is already part of a ring main which is pretty fully loaded so I decided that it'd be best to plug it into the other ring main in my house and the nearest socket is about 15metres away, would a 2.5mm flex be...

    I'm installing a 2.8kW fan assisted oven (no hob) I done some cable sizing calculations and voltage drop calculations and added 50% overload in aswell and I found I could use a 2.5mm cable to supply it. I also found I could use a 20A MCB, a friend said that he would use a 32A to be safe but...
