Wiring in a cooker
How easy is it to temp wire in a cooker? I can wire a plug etc but basically just brought a recon cooker, the wiring needs to be wired in to the back of the cooker and a plug on the end. I am only in the house for a week and I move to a new place that has a proper elec cooker socket, is it safe to do this so I can cook for my family tonight? And can I do this myself, when we move to the new place I'll be getting someone in to do it properly so it's certified safe.
An electric cooker carries a very high current of electricity (30 amps or more).
After wiring it needs to be inspected and tested by a qualified person ie. a qualified electrition as you might be putting yourself and your family at risk. Therefore, I would not advise attempting to wire this appliance yourself
