If it is a single oven attaching a 13amp plug and connecting it to a socket is fine. If it is a double oven it needs to be connected to a dedicated cooker circuit from your fuse board via a cooker control switch with 6mm twin and earth cable.
If it is just a single oven then a 13amp fuse is all that is required for the oven.
If you are unsure, then check the rating plate.
If the total amperage does not exceed 3kw, then it is safe to use it with a 13amp fuse., Anymore than 3kw, then it should be hard wired, with a minimum 30 amp fuse for protection.
Be careful with one. Turn power off at the mains first then change the socket. I suspect the wires were loose in the socket and heated up and damaged the switch. If you have a continuity meter try checking between live in and out and neutral in and out on the socket
Providing it is just a single fan oven on it's own. then it will work fine from a normal 13 amp socket. If it is a double oven, then it will have to be hard wired into a cooker control switch box, protected with a 30amp circuit trip or fuse. Please rate my solution to your query. Thanks.
