George-Allsorts :

, my name is***** standby a moment and I'll check

George-Allsorts :

again... I have looked at the parts list oven you are buying and taking into consideration the element types and powers, you will need to hard-wire the cooker to the main cooker terminal with 6mm cooker cable

JACUSTOMER-hlf13rvx- :

Thanks George. Can the cooker terminal be taken from a 13Amp ring cct?

George-Allsorts :

No, I'm sorry it can not.. This cooker will need to be connected to an independent main cooker circuit only..

JACUSTOMER-hlf13rvx- :

OK, thanks help, much appreciated. Am just trying to prepare the housing which currently has a gas double oven installed prior to delivery and installation by the suppliers. Have a great day! David

George-Allsorts :

> Power cord: Type H05 V V-F or a higher rating. The yellow­ green
wire safety earth terminal must be 10 mm longer on the
appliance side than the other wires.
In the installation, there must be an all-pin isolating switch with at
least 3 mm contact gap, or the appliance must be connected
using a plug with an earthing contact. This must remain
accessible after installation.
