Hi

I have registered for Part P inspection witb BC.

I am happy with the doing the lighting and socket additions but have a query about moving the cooker point.

I would prefer to run a new 6mm cable from the CU but it will cause too much disruption.

Is it acceptable to use an existing cooker point extensibly as a 'junction box' for extending a 6mm cooker cable? ie By connecting the existing cooker socket 'load' cable to the 'supply' connector on the new cooker socket and then connecting the cooker to the 'load' connector on the new socket?

The original cooker point / 'junction box' would be accessible in an adjacent kitchen unit

If not I will have to buy myself some crimps and ratchet crimper.

Thanks

Martin

Yeah, but I'd crimp it out and put a blank over it.

Does the cable come from the floor? If so you could pull it back and have a surface box with a crimped junction low on the wall, at kickboard height.

Thanks for reply but existing wire comes from ceiling and the wall/old chimney - hard to explain but not easy to access.
