I have just purchased an Electrolux hob EHS6610K & oven EOU 6330 to replace free standing cooker wired using 6mm twin/earth 32 amp fuse 45 amp twin pole switch old cooker rating 10,923w new hob 6.5 kw cooker 5 - 5.4kw. Will the old wiring be OK (instaled 1989) or do I need to up-rate to 10mm. Also can both hob & oven be wired into same cooker outlet? or should two circuits be used? (no spare fuses available in the old fuse box date un known, we will be having new consumer box fitted as soon as kitchen completed). We intend the hob to be above the oven.
Any advise would be appreciated.

PS does anyone know where to get the recomended cable for the hob type H05BB-F Tmax 90 deg or higher. Electrolux out of stock!!!!!!
