Unless your talking about one of those tiny, table top ovens, dont use a 13 amp socket / connection.

An electric oven must be connected via a 30 amp SUPPLY - the socket is just the connector at the end of the cable that runs from the fuse / breaker board. A 30 amp supply will use a much thicker cable capable of handing the higher currents.

Whilst a very basic oven may draw less than 13 amps current when operating in some modes, most will draw well in excess of this depending on what facilities they have, e.g. bake and grill at the same time, or maybe a combi-oven - one that can bake and microwave at the same time.

Moffat oven doesn't heat .The elements don't turn red


Check the oven fuse. If that's OK, unplug it from the power supply. Remove the screws holding the element to the oven and pull it carefully back away from the oven wall. Connect your VOM test leads to the 2 terminals (meter set to at least 250Vac). Make sure the leads are not touching any metal parts of the oven and they are not touching the element. Plug oven in and turn the oven on. Do not touch the oven during testing. Reading 220 - 250 Vac power is OK. Element is bad. Reading lower then 220 or none at all no power getting to element, need more testing to find the problem. Be careful, and use common sense when working with and around electricity.

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.

Diplomat integrated oven- 13amp?


You need to get an electrician to wire it in to a 30amp cooker outlet. It is 30amp rather than 13amp (like most sockets). It should go to its own fuse in the fuebox

Recently wired a double oven with isolator switch


Hi, there's definitely a electrical problem.
First, use the bottom oven only for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
Second, use just the grill (top oven) for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
The reason is sometimes grill elements are corroded and only trip after a few minutes.
Also, if both ovens work ok on their own, then it could be your fuse box not strong enough, or the isolator switch fuse be only 13amp. If your oven is more than 3Kw (check the label on the door for info) then you need a 30amp fuse to hold when both ovens are on.
Cheers

Installing a B1641 oven


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.
