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?

If it is a single oven, then it can be used from a normal 13 amp socket.
It only needs to be hard wired if it is a double oven or one with integrated hotplates.
If you are not sure, check the wattage rating, if it is less than 3kw, then it is safe to use from a socket.
Hope this helps.

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.

Have just purchased a hotpoint openspace pyrolytic oven. It has a standard 3 core cable on it stating it is fitted with a sealed unit plug. There is no plug and wires have been bared. Is this normal. Is it...


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.

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.

The bottom element in the oven does not work. Doesn't turn on. The top element is ok. We have a Hotpoint Crystale Oven (Purchased March 1990) Model Number: KE637KW1 Vic


The bottom element has failed and will need to be replaced.

You will need to remove the element by undoing the fixing screws and the electical connectors then when you have got your replacement fit it by the same method.

Remember to turn the power off before you start.

Error code f2 after replacing sensor.


If the sensor utilizes a plug, it is not uncommon for the plug connection to become intermittent. Cut the plug off the sensor and the wire harness. Directly 'hard wire' the sensor wires to the harness wires using CERAMIC wire nuts.. (no polarity here, sensor is a resistive element) regular plastic wire nuts will melt. If problem persists thereafter, the electronic control may have to be replaced.
