Was just cooking some wedges and I smelt a bit of burning but I just thought it was the oven as the missus hasn't used it for a while. But I come back to check on the wedges and the oven was off!!

So tomorrow i'll be buying a new plug and socket and try to flash it up again ? 

The fuse didn't blow and the MCB didn't trip either, very strange!!!

I haven't seen an oven with a standard plug socket.........

 

It usually runs of a wall switch.

dude you cant run a oven on a 13amp plug. they run on a thick 30amp cable. you could have burnt the house down. 

Its was fitted when I bought the house. Some ovens can run off a 13 amp plug. It has an isolation switch on the wall which goes down to the socket in the cupboard.

I've had the oven for nearly 9 years so its probably on the way out, i'm going to try it again with new plug and socket then see what happens. The plug could have deteriorated over the years. Not paying an electrician when I can do some fault finding first!

I've done quite a bit of electrical shite in the navy so I have basics! ?

What the fuck?

You need a 30 amp fuse and its own cable into the fuseboard.

Dodgy set up mate. Your insurance would not have paid out for a fire.

Cable overload.

Didn't trip as it is dodgy. Needs its own circuit.

In the 21st century you really can.

well looking at the overloaded plug that burned out it looks like you really cant. if you wire your oven to a 30amp with a isolated trip switch you will never have a problem. a burned plug like that should have tripped a safty switch.

i take it you are a qualified electrician so would you recommend a 13amp plug for a cooker or just go with the 30amp for safety

@superally how many watts does his cooker use. 

How the feck would i know about his cooker FFS? Tho i am fairly confident if it wasn't deemed safe,regulations would never have allowed it. 9 years is a fair old time to go without a service or safety check tho. Some people are just too tight,or lack the common sense to get these things done. Then again some people claim to have profound knowledge,yet lack the basic grammatical skills required to know when, a sentence or word requires a capital letter. Each to their own eh?

true. but i do know that fitting a cooker to a 30amp socket will stop a potential fire in your home and im pretty sure thats more important than a capital letter. Each to their own eh?

Safety check's, Pat testing, and servicing, will also do the same. Who the feck keeps a cooker for 9 years anyhow? I 100% guarantee they would not keep a mobile phone,or laptop for that amount of time. My oven and hob,both 13 amp,both tested annually,perfectly safe. Also grammatically correct. I'm happy with that,each to their own.
