A "hard wired" oven means the 10 gauge (3 conductor with ground) cable from the main service panel (breaker box) is connected directly to terminals on the oven. A "plug in" oven means there is a wall outlet into which plugs a cable connected to the oven terminals. The plug on the cable would be very similar if not identical to the plug on the cable used on a clothes dryer.

How to hook up electrical? 220v single phase? What color wires on which connections of the plug?


Identify the prongs. If you have wired a 110-volt fixture or plug, then you are aware that the different prongs connect to different colors of wires. The same principle holds true for 220-volt plugs, and this is very important to keep from tripping the circuit breaker. A three-prong plug will connect to two colored wires that each supply 110 volts and a bare copper wire which is the ground. One of these colored wires will be black, while the other one should be red, white, or blue. The four-prong plugs connect to a black and a red wire that each supply 110 volts, a white neutral wire, and a bare copper ground wire.

OVEN TRIPS OUT


Posted this several years ago. It's possible the oven sensor has gone bad or lost connection. Try cutting out the little plastic electric plug that connects the sensor to the oven wiring. Then hard wire it together with two small wire nuts.
If that doesn't work, you will need a new sensor, as we did. But when we installed it, we used the little plastic electric plug to connect it. Two days later it started acting up again.
The instructions said to hard wire it with two small wire nuts, but since it came with a plug it made sense to use it. Finally, even though it didn't make sense, I cut out the plastic plug and hard wired it. It's been about 3 years now and we've had no further problems.
THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THAT LITTLE PLASTIC ELECTRIC PLUG. YOU MUST NOT USE IT. HARD WIRE IT.

How do you know if your oven is hard wired in or plugged in if can't see it?


The wiring should go to a cooker switch box...usually found at the back of an adjacent cupboard or on the wall. This will usually have a large red switch with a power indicator light and a standard switched socket.
On most installations of seperate oven and hob...the hob will be hard wired to the big red switch and the oven will be plugged in to the standard socket. So switch the socket off and see wether your oven is off...if the oven is connected to the big red switch instead then it must be hardwired...

F10 oven code frequently beeps,often after cooking is over and oven is coolind down at different temperature settings tempermental some times it works sometimes it does not.


The "F10" error code caused by the runaway temperature.
The first thing I would check is the resistance across the oven temperature probe (aka oven temperature sensor) terminals at the EOC (electronic oven control) plug.
It suppose to be about 1100 Ohms at the room temperature.
If the resistance at the EOC plug is wrong, then measure the oven temperature probe resistance at the probe plug.
If it's wrong - replace the oven temperature probe. It's better to hardwire it, using a high temperature ceramic wire nuts.
If the readings at the EOC and at the oven temperature probe plug are different - check the wire harness between the oven temperature probe and the EOC.
If there is nothing wrong with the oven temperature probe resistance - replace the EOC.

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


Hi.
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.

Not to sure what wire to use and if I can use a plug


You can use it a 13amp plug if it is just a single built in oven and the total wattage does not exceed 3000 watts..
Anymore than 3000 watts, then it will have to be hard wired into a seperate control unit with 6mm twin and earth cable.

Hard wired or plug in


if i bought a single oven with a three wire cable coming out the back with no plug, which i know is meant to be hard wired, are you saying i could fit a plug to this and plug it into a normal 13amp socket, reason i ask i ahve an oven which has packed in and it plugs into the wall at the back, if i fitted a plug onto the cable from a single oven below 3kw then are you saying i can do this?

Does the belling d841ss come with a plug or does it need hard wiring


If it is a single oven without hotplates, then it is o/k to use it with a plug,
If it is a twin compartment oven, then it needs to be hard wired.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
