    We have just got our new electric double oven and thought we could wire up as the same as last one to the mains with RCD trip with a cooker socket so as to turn off to the right of oven, but at the back of the oven, other than the mains wiring part, there are 3 other small wires coming from the back bottom of oven one red, one green and a yellow & one black we have no idea what these are for as we did not have them on the other oven. Could anyone tell us what these are for and how they should be wired :?: Would be very grateful as we have just had part of the house re-wired and a new consumer unit installed and don't want any more expense if we can help it.

    Do the wires look as though they should be sticking out of the oven or could they have been pulled out in transit. Perhaps if you rang the Smeg service line they may advise.It seems unusual to have wires sticking OUT of a cooker. They will probably send an engineer out.

    Try this which is the manual for the DUSF44X EAN13: 8017709181970

    http://www.smeguk.com/smeg_uk/docs/manuals/914775403-EN.pdf

    Is this a brand new oven or an oven that has been previously owned ?

    Can you provide a photo with the mains connection cover plate removed so the mains terminals are visible.

    Thank you every one who has responded, we have found an electrician who has installed Smeg ovens before he tells us that the wires are something to do with abroad and he just puts them into an end terminal I think he said.

    Yes it is a brand new oven and the smeg technical drawing and installation on the internet doesn't even show them, not very good really, this electrician said when he first came across it he had to ring them up as he didn't know what they were for.

    They probably don't show them or mention them so that you use their engineers
