    Hello,

    I just purchased a Beko new oven. It hasn't come with any wires so i'll have to buy own own but unsure what type as looking at the connect bit at the back i think i will struggle with a 6mm cable.

    Any one here know how this should be wired? I have 6mm wall outlet...

    Electrical Connection
    2.3 KW

    Fuse Rating
    13 amps
    Thanks

    Manufacturers instructions will state that the oven needs connecting by a qualified electrician

    Perhaps not the same model, but still a Beko 2.3kW oven. The manual states:
    "Always have the installation and repair work performed by the manufacturer, the authorized service, or a person specified by the importer"

    Not even a 'qualified electrician' gets a look in! ;)

    Can you imagine, every time you wire up a new kitchen. Oh look - a Beko oven.

    Right, we must phone Beko, get one of their engineers round to connect this thing up, we daren't do it.

    Beko come round, 'Oh we can't possibly connect our oven to THAT, YOU'LL have to change it, we can't put in new cables, we can't do this, we can't do that, not my job, we're not allowed, more than my job's worth...'

    A 2.3kW oven can be connected using an ordinary UK plug and socket.

    Unfortunately the OP doesn’t have a socket, or a plug.
    Just use the cable suggested by @flameport and wire it straight in to the connection plate on the wall.

    Just yet another example of manufacturers instructions being wrong, so can be ignored.
