Hi,

I have revently ordered a new Range and before i contacted an electritian to book installation i thought i would pull my current oven out and check if there was a seperate 32A socket so the job of hardwiring the new cooker in would be relitivaly straight forward, however, When i pulled my oven out i found that a thin cable with a standard UK plug on the end of it was connected to the oven and then into a standard socket, i then noticed that from the top of that standard socket there is a large grey cable that runs to what i can only assume is a seperate socket for the oven but i am not sure.

We do have a seperate cut off switch for the oven so i was oretty sure our current range was hardwired into a 32A socket but i am not so sure now.

Any ideas what this is? Is this something thats normal practise? I have attched pictures of the wireing situation behind the current cooker.

Any advice will be appriciated. 20190328_000630.jpg 20190328_000635.jpg 20190328_000630.jpg 20190328_000635.jpg
