Hi.

I have an old electric Mira shower 240v 7kw which is now disconnected.
I would like to install a small electric radiator 230v 300w.

Can I use the same cable which connected the shower to connect the radiator instead?

Many Thanks.
Liz.

Well, considering that the cable to feed a 7000 watt load is considerably larger than one that would be needed to feed a 300 watt load, it could be done I guess, but it would be a pain.

Some of those towel warmers have very small junction boxes. This may be an issue.

Are you in USA or in European area?

It can be done however the conductor size it will raise ugly " rear end " with connection if the shower oringal conductors were at #8 { 10mm²} it can be very tricky to termatation to the towel racks due the junction box it can be pretty small { I allready did see it before it is not any bigger than 3/4 size of the handibox size }

However if You are in UK that circuit it still must be on RCD{ GFCI }.

Merci,Marc
