Hi All

I have someone who has been convinced to down grade the fuse for his cooker as the Gas man convinced him it was a good idea.

the set up is the cooker is 2500watts and has a 45 amp switch with a single socket, and these are on a 32 amp MCB. he plugs his kettle into the socket.

Question is would you down grade the breaker or put in a fused spur. It is all fitted into nice tiles so I can't go chopping the wall out.

cheers

This sounds like a single Built in type oven, it will require protection by a 13A fuse , so a s.f.c.u. sounds like the best bet ..............Gas men giving out Electrical advice now Eh !

If the cooker is plugged into the 13A socket on the cooker switch plate then surely the 13A fuse in the cooker plug does the necessary protection? Can't see why you would need to change to an fcu? Daz

Just realised I misread the bit about the socket - apologies!! Daz
