How to wire an electric cooker.

How to wire an electric cooker.

Electric cooker must have it's own radial circuit. Between the cooker and the consumer unit, you must install double pole switch (cooker control unit). For the cookers up to 13.5 kW the radial circuit must be run in 4mm2 T&E cable and it must be protected by a 30 amp fuse or 32 amp MCB. For larger cookers, up to 18kW 6mm2 cable must be used and 40 amp MCB.
