No. It must be 6mm t&e cable from the wall socket to the cooker. To use anything else will rick getting an electric shock.

No power to cooker hood

Should be on a separate breaker, sometimes wired to a clock/fridge circuit. Check all breakers. I have seen people wire them to a GFCI outlet as well, not supposed to, but people still do it. Check for 120Vac at the fan and light switches, if its ther your switch is bad, it not there cicuit is not connected to power supply.

Wiring up

  • 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.

Hotpoint bd32 oven and top oven/grill what output does this have .and does it need 6mm cable connection or can it go on a plug

You most definitely need a 6mm hard wired supply cable to cooker, anything less, and the cable will overheat .
Under no circumstances connect it to a 13 amp suupply and plug.
The total kw output can reach in excess of 4-5 kw, so it is imperative that you hard wire it to a seperate fused supply.

What does it mean when a gas cooker needs hardwiring

It means that it does not have a cord and a plug to just plug it into a wall socket...
It needs to be "hardwired" into the electrical circuit with a regular piece of wire...

Electrical output requirement for a buit-in oven and cooktop

Providing the existing switch outlet iscontrolled by a 30amp circuit fuse or trip, then there is no problem connecting the 2 appliances to the same switch.
If on the other hand, it is controlled by a 13 amp breaker, then you cannot connect both appliances to this, you would have to use 2 seperate sockets.
Hope this clarifys your question.

Just had delivered Boch HBM13B221B Double oven. There is no cable. How do I attach it to the electrics in the house

You need to wire it up with 6mm twin and earth cable.
You must connect it to a seperate 30amp double pole cooker box, and nothing else.
Do not onder any circumstances connect it to a 13 amp socket outlet,
Unless you have a good knowledge of electrics, then I would recommend you get a qualified electrician to wire it in for you.
Please rate my solution.

Electrical Failure - Nothing working

Probably not a cable failure more likely to be a screw in a connector block which has not been tightened correctly.

Unless you are a competant person I would not advise going beyond what you have done so far.

I would start at the plug top and make sure that the screws are tight on all connections then use a multimeter on ohms across the Live & Neutral to see if there was any resistance showing.

If that was dead then (WITH THE POWER OFFI would go to the terminal block which connects the power cable to the cooker and check for continuity using a buzzer on both Live & Neutral cable

If there is continuity on both then it is a case of checking for internal fuses on the unit or a bad connection leading up to or on the connector strip which supplies the on/off switches for the various elements.

I recently lost the front two rings on a Halogen cooker which had worked fine until we took it out to put a new worktop down.

The problem was a metal link which for over two years had been laying across the contacts without beeing fastened down.

Hardwiring in cooker

6mm is the norm for wiring in the majority of electric ovens, you could fit 10mm, but it is is not really needed, unless you want to do it that way.

Is 10mm cable ok from 4kw oven to connector unit

A bigger cable size (larger diameter conductors) will not affect power requirements of the stove. (A smaller one definitely will)
