So... a bit of a faux pas happened the weekend... i managed to drill through the 30amp mains cable that goes down to the oven and hob.

Anyone know the best course of action short of channelling the wall out and rewiring the whole thing?

Kind regards

Hi Dan and welcome to the Forum.
Usually Kev the kitchen fitter that gets the drilling accuracy award, ha ha. Anyway, most Electricians can repair this type of thing and test to ensure it meets safety specs afterwards. Someone on here may be local and able to pop by if you want help with it.

Is it the section of cable in between the switch and hob/oven or is the cable just going straight to the hob with no switch?
You might get lucky and be able to tie on to the old cable or if there is no switch that could be an ideal location to install one

Presumably the drilling was to put up another or replacement wall unit or shelf. I would install a surface 32A jointbox, I’ve used a surface white 2 gang back box & blank lid with Wago connectors or similar, in the back of unit. Then replaced the ongoing cable with new. If it’s a shelf, you’ll need a suitably placed cook book. :)
