Question about Hotpoint RB526 Electric Kitchen Range
In the UK, to connect to the connection block of a fixed integrated oven in a Kitchen, you must be a Part P Registered electrician. Such an electrician will issue a Minor Works Certificate for this work on completion - otherwise they are not Registered!
Be aware that if the work is not done under Part P and a fire occurs, etc your insurance company are entitled to REFUSE to pay out for the damage including any consequential damage to neighbours property or for loss of life!!
The block has three terminals and the Live, Neutral and Earth are indicated by marks stamped on the metal back of the cooker (if a CE product).
L = Live and takes the Brown covered wire
N = Neutral and takes the Blue covered wire
or E = Earth (CPC) and takes the green/yellow covered.
If the cable has an uncovered copper third wire or is coloured Red/Black it should be replaced from the connection accessory on the wall behind the cooker with a heat resistant 3-core Butyl cable of sufficient size to cope with the load of the oven.
If you let me know the rating of the oven (label on door) in amps or watts, I'll tell you what size of cable you need.
