Cooker supply cable/socket supply
My son has just moved into a rented maisonette & couldn't get the fridge & freezer to work.
On checking it was found that the double socket for the fridge & freezer is fed from the cooker supply connection. This means that the cooker switch has to be on for the fridge & freezer to work. This doesn't seem to be correct. Please can you advise?

This is not good practice as the fridge should be fed from the ring circuit and not the cooker circuit, this needs rectifying as it could cause problems if the cable rating is less than the fuse rating, but should only be attempted by a qualified electrician.
