Have a new Electric cooker arriving soon which needs 30amp connection. The 30amp cooker socket /switch is installed already which has a spur which acts as a "connection box" for the actual cooker cable to connect to.
My question is simple - is this as easy to wire in as a standard UK mains plug? or is it a bit more tricky? Have a friend who is an electrician so could ask him to do it for me but if its simple enough then would like to do it myself. Looked for some diagrams but could see nothing on the net ;-(
Lastly before I go - the old cooker is a GAS only type and I believe it has a bayonet type fitting (is this a UK countrywide type fitting) and if so is it just case of twist and pull to disconnect? Would i need to get that connection checked after removal or will just the twist and pull be enough to prevent any further escape of gas (apart from whats left in the hose still connected to the cooker)
I am sure this is all very easy but I would just like to check first.
