Go to college.

You are taking money for electrical work, you are plainly not an electrician.

hi all
quick question,cooker switch is behind the cooker,can i through crip it to extend it Depending on the size of the cable you may find it difficult to 1) pick up off the shelf the crimps 2) have a crimper that will deal with the crimps, if 6mm you will be lucky if 10mm not so

,cover it with a blanking plate then come out left or right off it to re position the switch in a safe zone.If you are intending burying the cable your extending then

no rcd You may find you have to provide an RCD for it unless you decide to give it additional protection other than with an RCD

there on a tight budget ?#

many thanks for your help
Again I assume you know that any work in a kitchen that entails adding to the existing circuit if your in England and Wales needs to be registered to Part P of the building regulations

its a job for my nan,comet refused to fit cooker as the switch is directly behind the cooker.additional protection,do you mean metle capping earthed
 
No metal capping would not do even if you earthed it. Only conduit to BS 61386-21 or trunking to BS 50085-2-1 can be used as earthed protection.

What did you learn on your 2330?

What is additional protection?

Will metal capping provide additional protection?

I'd be questioning why Comet refused to connect a cooker on an existing installation.

we all know college aint worth alot,theres no training like on the job training and advice from people that know what there doing and all positive advice is recieved gratfully.
and to add insult to injury i just passed my lvl 3 and the new 17th edition
 
Comet may have refused to connect the new cooker as I don't think they can hard wire equipment as such, they normally charge you for the pleasure and get a contractor in.

They also may have felt that having no RCD protection would go against the manufacturers instructions as most cookers now want that RCD protection

17th edition states that you can fit a dedicated circuit aslong as its named without rcd protection shoot me if im wrong
 
Your wrong as in this case ..................I'll get my gun

There is no need for additional protection for a cooker circuit unless as I posted your bury the cable, but as you have done your 17th you will know what reg 510.3 will say regarding manufactures instructions.

As I said it may have been why they refused to connect it, because the manufacture may have wanted RCD protection

I know years ago Curry's would not fit a cooker if the efli was to high for the expected cpd, so people with TT and too high a reading had to get their own sparks to sort it out. The chap came in plugged tester in and left the cooker .

I carry out work for a kitchen fitter and i have to fit RCD's on and existing circuits for several of there oven brands who nullify the guarantee unless there fitted.
