, Hope you can help. I currently have an electric built

Resolved Question:

,
Hope you can help.
I currently have an electric built under double oven with a gas hob.
I am looking to buy a new Bosch Built under double oven with an induction hob. I note in the tech spec that a high amp fuse would be required both oven and the hob. I currently have a main cooker switch which is oven. Would i be able to run both the new oven and hob from the same supply or would i need to get an additional 30amp supply put in from the fuse box.
Thank you

, my name is***** be patient whilst awaiting any responses as I'm not constantly available.

Do you know the model number of the DO and the IH that you intend to install?

Customer:

George

Customer:

Most likely to be HBN53R550B oven and PIN675N17E hob or equivalent

George-Allsorts :

Give me a few moments and I'll check

Customer:

Thank you

George-Allsorts :

, sorry delay..

George-Allsorts :

According to the information that I have just looked at, the hob is 9.5kW in total... This will require its own individual Double Pole isolator

Customer:

Sorry thats a foreign language to me. I assume that means a separate supply from the fuse box

George-Allsorts :

Sorry.. yes.. this means that it will need its own separate supply

Customer:

Thank you. Have you had an experience of the 13amp induction hobs which just plug in, i assume they must be power restricted.

George-Allsorts :

Sorry, I had to answer the phone..

George-Allsorts :

!3amp IH... I have only ever seen these in a 1 plate and 2 plate version... These are not normally into a kitchen, but are use

George-Allsorts :

The higher the wattage the greater the need separate mains cable supply

Customer:

I have seen one in the bosch range which is 4 zone but seems the output is only 2990 watts rather than 7200 models

George-Allsorts :

So in this scenario.. If you need it to fit 13amp restriction then the wattage has to be very low

George-Allsorts :

do you know the model?

Customer:

PIA611B68B

George-Allsorts :

One moment

George-Allsorts :

That is:

2x 1.4 + 2x 1.8 = 6.4kW

or

2x 1.8 + 2x 2.5 = 8.6kW
