Question about Ovens

1 Answer

Hi, I am thinking about buying a logik lbfanx10 oven but I understand it has to be hard wired. My old oven is simply fitted with a 13amp plug and it just plugs into a socket. As I do not know the power consumption of the new oven I do not know if I can just fit a cable and plug it into a 13 amp socket.. Can you advise? Many thanks Mr E.Emmerson

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: oven connection

I have tried to locate electrical information on your oven from here in the USA. I was not able to locate the electrical requirements for your Zanussi ZOD 330X. If it is typical voltage for ovens like ours in the USA I would say no and that the power should be 240 volts and 50 ampere breaker. But to be sure you should locate a local supplier for your model and ask them first. This will prevent any incorrect answers from someone that is not familiar with your local requirements. Thank You, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Have just purchased a hotpoint

Is this unit new?? Are you in the EU (EU regulations say appliances MUST be fitted with a plug) If it IS new, I would be talking to the supplier!

However, to address your question If it has a standard 3 core cable fitted, then it almost certainly should have a plug on it!

To reassure yourself, just use the simple formula of Watts divided by volts = amps

I'm presuming that you are in the UK (240 volt supply) and the oven is under 3KW (3000 watts)

This being the case 3000 watts divided by 240 volts = 12.5 amps, so you are OK with a 13 amp plug. Anything above a 3KW oven in the UK should have something meatier than a 13amp plug on it.

Of course, there is nothing to STOP you wiring it to a 45 amp outlet, but the fuse rating for the appliance should be matched to its maximum consumption to protect from faults failing to blow a fuse in a timely manner.

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.

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.

I am going to install my new mytag oven MEW7530WDS01, can you tell me the Amp. protection required for this oven? it is a 220V


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.

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?

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.
