    Advice needed. Electric cooker Cable from appliance to wall outlet.

    Any advice assistance appriciated,
    i have just ordered a new electric hotpoint cooker from dixons including installation, although i am told the cooker does not come with the connecting electrical wire to fit to the wall outlet. where can i purchase wiring for this as have advised me that they do not provide this part. my exsiting cooker is electric but i dont want to use the cable from this as it is about 20 years old.

    I've looked on the b&Q website without any luck. what do i need to ask for.

    Thank you in advance.

    30 amp cooker wire at b&q

    depends on kw of the cooker you bought? 6 or 10mm Twin + Earth
    Usually get mine from wilkinsons in the high street its marked up as cooker cable just cut it to size required

    or maplin

    Good idea to get a new cable if the one you have is 20+ years. As raptorcigs suggest, get it from B&Q and make sure it says Cooker Cable.

    If you tell us which cooker, we can try and find the manual online and check the installation instructions - this should have the wattage (kW), therefore the ampage and from there the wiring required.

    If you dont have a B&Q you could get the cable from wilkinsons

    6MM or 10MM Twin and earth cable depending on Kw

    Wilko's is about cheapest, I had to buy 10 metres of it recently..!!!

    2mts of 10mm Twin & Earth cable will do you, as stated above. B&Q will have, or call a few electrical wholesalers if you are near some, you might save a bit.

    c c c of 6 mm t&e is 47 if clipped direct
    also some of these new cooker only need a 13 amp feed via a plug ,so just search your make and model , this should tell you the kw rating

    wiloks is your best bet, just be sure that when you buy the cooker cable that you buy the appropriate earth sleeving at the same time or the engineer won't fit it. you need to sleeve the exposed earth cable at both ends
