Ok so below we have taken the time to go over the basics of DIY installation, But we recommend calling a Registered Local Electrician as knowing the regulations are important for your safety.
You have to know how an electric cooker must be installed, as well as what type of circuit it uses, we use ohms law and calculations to determine the cable size and the type of circuit breaker needed. (Take note that fitting or installing an electric cooker has to be done on its own circuit. It can never be spurred of another circuit). It also has to be controlled using a double pole isolator that is near to the appliance but this also had to conform to Part P of the building regulations.
Connecting your cooker cable to the main supply via the isolator we spoke about in the previous step. (IMPORTANT This step could KILL you!!) electricians have calibrated test equipment to allow us to check for voltage, you have to make sure that you turn off the correct circuit breaker in the consumer unit or fuse box before you move to another step. Do not forget to turn off the power of the control unit if in doubt call 0121 820 3644.
Another thing that you need to remember about electric cooker installation is the type of circuit used. You need to be wary of the size of your cable. You should be able to run it from your consumer unit to the cooker control unit, there are regulations for doing this and you need to make sure that the cable is connected to the fabric of the building by a metallic object.
Likewise, you have to be mindful of the type of cable, fuse and switched used for your electric cooker. Take note that electric cookers use a lot of currents since they need heat to function. To cope with such high current demand, a large MCB or fuse, as well as a double pole isolating switch and thick cable is required.
If your MCB or fuse is not big enough, it would merely trip the moment you start using it. Then again, if your MCB or fuse is too large, it may not blow or trip at the right time in case a problem arises. In addition, if your cable is not big enough, it may heat up quickly and start a fire.
Hence, knowing and using the right sizes are vital for electric oven wiring requirements. You have to check out the user guide or manual of your electric cooker to find out about the fuse and cable sizes it requires, qualified electrical engineers Birmingham electrician installations Ltd are on hand if you require assistance installing your new cooker
