i m fitting a kitchen and need to know what
i need to lower a cooker socket.
because its in the way for the kitchen units to be
its the wire which needs to be extended.
can it be extended using a junction box?
What direction do the wires come from to the cooker unit ? It is easier to
move along the cable, making it shorter really, until you get the cooker
unit to a position that is out of the way of your kitchen units.
To extend the cable would really mean putting in a proper box and blanking
plate with proper connections inside to take the heavy cable that is needed
to run you stove. There are cooker connectors that have all the necessary
connections inside, but this too would be in the way if you position it in
the same spot as the original cooker unit, unless you sink it below the
surface of the plaster and make sure it is properly protected against people
banging nails and screws through it.
