'Electrikit' Aga range cooker Conversion Electric Supply Requirements
The cooker connects into two 13 amp switched fused spurs. These can be a separate circuit or part of an existing circuit. You'll need an electrician to install these in a hidden spot close to your cooker before our arrival.
The best place for the spurs is below the worktop level to the left hand side of the Aga range cooker but it can go either side if need be. Basically tell your electrician to bear in mind that we need to run power cables to the spurs from the cooker; if they are visible the cabling will be too!
The hob elements are each rated at 1.4kw so with both hobs in action your maximum requirement is for 2.8kw. The hobs run off one of the two 13amp fused spurs.
The oven element is 1.8kw with a further 850w oven element if your cooker is a 4 oven model. The ovens, with a maximum requirement of 1.8Kw for a 2 oven model and 2.65kw for a 4 oven model, run off the other fused spur.
Maximum draw is therefore 4.6kw for the 2 oven model and 5.45kw for the 4 oven model. In almost all cases the spurs can therefore be run off an existing circuit in the kitchen. Your electrician should be able to confirm!
A switch fuse spur like the one above, with a flex outlet is a perfect solution. This allows our heatproof 1.5mm flexible cable to enter the unit safely and be clamped and terminated correctly
If the electrician plans to position the spurs above the worktop, or not locally to the cooker, we will need one of the above to connect into - this is a 20a flex outlet plate. Again it includes a clamp for our cable to be held tight, and will provide the terminations for our cable to be connected safely and correctly.
Before we come -The electricity supply will need to be ready and certified by your trusted electrician following this useful guide. We will bring a handy file in which to store your certificate with your Blake & Bull user information. We will need photos of your electrics once set up - so please get your camera ready!
