Hi

I changed my mums single built in oven over the weekend

When I replaced it i found it was plugged into a double socket behind the oven, the gas hob was also plugged into this socket too. This socket was fed via on fused spur in the cupboard next to it. The spur was on the kitchen ring (small kitchen)

Is this ok?

The oven is rated less than 13A and its a gas hob so just for ignition

What are peoples thoughts on this, any advice appreciated

Thanks

Sounds ok to me, if you have concerns then get a spark to check it out for you.
At least you will have some test certs for your peace of mind.

Standard get up , sometimes you find just a single socket doing both with the 2 flexes into 1 plug top...bit rough but i seem to find this all the time on newer kitchens.

If the manufacturer recommends/states its ok to use a 13amp plug, then that’s what you do, always follow the manufacturers instructions,then you’re covered, cut the plug off and wire it differently,then you’ve voided the warranty and ‘IF’ anything does go wrong,then you’re to blame.
