bit disappointed by some of the sarcastic responses on my first time on using this site - always taught sacrcasm was an act of repressed aggression!
But in response to you John D who send very helpful and genuine this is the cooker I'm working with:
Flavel duel fuel range cooker total KW output 5.7. So this is ok on a 30 amp circuit. Now I've bought some 6mm2 wire to connect up the cooker to the outlet socket but I'm not sure if the wire that comes into the outlet box from the fuse box is 6mm2 or 10mm2. I think that it is 6mm2 but just can't see enough of it to be 100% sure.
So what I wanted to know was - does the wire coming out of the outlet socket into the cooker need to be of exactly the same specification (ie 6mm2 0r 10mm2 etc) as the wire coming from the fuse box into the outlet socket?
Am I making sense now? I mean I know if I was to put a much smaller spec of wire in there like 2mm2 then it would just blow it but I have a feeling that these specs will be ok because the 6mm2 can take a 47amp max capacity. Just need to know for sure.
