When wiring a cooker how should this be done taking into account plastering work?

Ov it needs to be in its own circuit!

Wired from db to control unit near cooker, then from cooker to control unit!

Theclient wants the wiring done then plastering and the cooker fitting therefor
thewite from cooker to control unit wont be under plaster!

Is it okay to run wire from control unit to point behind the cooker! Then wait for plastering to be done then crimp the cable i run to behind the cooker to the cooker cable?

If not how do you get around this

normaly from cu to isolation switch from isolation swith to cooker outlet behind cooker, then cooker is connected to cooker outlet behind cooker.

obviously its a notifyable job.

Out of interest what is the cooker pulling in Amps ? I take it you are self notifying or notifying the LABC ? I don't see any issue with a flex or TE from cooker control to point of use as long as it meets the regs..

I was in a house the other day and the house owner had changed the cooker switch with socket and shorted the supply cable on the back box when he pushed the isolator back, he asked me to take alook at why the cooker and hob (seperate units) were no longer working. It was a blown fuse, but the cooker and hob were both directly wired in the cooker switch unit supplied by a 6mm cable and 45amp fuse. the cooker was 2.1kw and had a flex connected to this unit. I assume the cable was not any bigger than 2.5 with no seperate fuse!

The cables connected to the appliances need to have the correct current carrying capacity to the said fuse, but having both on one fuse is quite common I see this most times

What cable do you use when you come out of the outlet plate and into the oven if you have used a 6mm twin and earth for the feed? Would it be a 6mm flex?
