    So you can just do what ever you like and completely ignore the requirements of the manufacturers who design, build and understand what supply their product should be connected to and the reasons why?

    If I buy something that says 110V on it and it blows up when I connect it to a 230V supply, can I return it as the 110V rating was just guidance and not a requirement?

    Have a read of BS7671:2018 regulation 510.3

    No, you use your common sense. Manufacturers instructions are frequently wrong sadly, (see attachment for the MI of a B & Q oven).

    Common sense says you do not connect a 110v appliance to a 240v supply.

    Common sense says you do not connect a 16A appliance to a 32A circuit.

    Have you read regulation 510.3?

    I’ve seen you post that image on a different forum using your other username haven’t I George?

    His needle is stuck in one groove. He has been warned about this.

    The MCB is to protect the cable not the appliance. By your reasoning you would not put a 100w lamp on a 6a circuit.

    I guess this guy George lifted that image from these forums.

    No. Could you post a copy?

    Are the “regs” legally binding?

    Do you not have your own copy?

    Regulation 114.1 explains fully the legal status of BS7671

    Not both at the same time, possibly his intellect can only manage one personality at a time.

    I think I'd go for the cooker cirucit through DP isolator on wall next to the ovens, then onto to enclosure containing B16 breakers in a cupboard above the oven (or below) mounted to the side, but tight upto the back, load of stuffing glands in the side protruding through clearance holes on the back each with a 2.5 heat resistant straight flexes (or whatever) to each appliance (nip up the stuffers before fixing the enclosure to the cabinet). Its s simular scenero to those serve-overs you get in cafes, they usually have a section with breakers in to feed out to each bit of kit

    Nope. That's why I asked you to post a copy.

    So you’re telling people what they should or shouldn’t do with their electrical installations without actually knowing what regulations govern their work and what they must do to comply with them?
