    Hello, a quick question hopefully as I'm in the middle of doing the job!! :confused:

    I've fitted the cooker switch to the side of the cooker position above worktop height, I'm now doing the connection box position, I would like to place it in directly below the switch then run the cooker cable to it, this would mean the connection box is to the side of the cooker rather than behind it. Is this OK??

    Just makes running the cables easier, I was going to run the 6mm twin & earth cable loose in the wall behind the insulated plasterboard.

    It would look exactly like the pic in the post below!


    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    Of course, in that picture, if the cable between the CU and the control unit is buried in the wall it would have to be in earthed steel conduit as it is not in a safe zone :)

    If you have to replace the cooker at some point, how easy will it be to disconnect the cable from the cooker point. If it's easily accessible then it's OK, if it's not easily accessible you might regret doing this.
