    Hi Guys

    The current oven that we are replacing runs from a 13a 3pin plug. Now the Neff is quoted as being 2.85kW. Am I correct in thinking that this will also run from a 13a 3 pin plug?

    ;)

    That figure is within the 13A fuse limit - without taking into account issues of diversity.
    But what do the manufacturers instructions say?
    Do they supply the oven with a 13A plug attached?

    Thanks for the reply,

    "Do they supply the oven with a 13A plug attached?"


    Apparently not!

    The wiring regulations recommend that an oven with an output of 2kW or greater, should have a dedicated circuit and not fitted with a plug.
