Quick question on ELEC COOKER installation

Hi,

I have a quick question.

I have an electric cooker which has cable attached etc and is ready to be wired in to my mains.

I have the white box with the red cooker switch, my question is do i just wire it in here? Or does it need to be wired elsewhere?

Thanks (not very knowledgable on these things!)

Chris

I still don;t know what you are talking about. Why don;t you specify the manufacturer and model number of the device, or better yet provide a link to the owner's manual on the Internet.

How this is wired depends 100 percent on the voltage and current requirements, and on where you live.

I think he's talking about a slow cooker. All you have to do is plug it in and select your desired temp on the knob,low med high!

From the terms used in your post, I'm betting you are not in the USA, but maybe in Great Britain?

Yes, you wire your cooker into the cooker box, what else is it for, and what else would you connect the cooker to?

"Cooker" is UK speak for a kitchen range. They typically plug into or are hard wired into a switched/fused disconnect point, which is fed with its own breaker or fuse in the circuit panel (called a consumer unit in the UK).
