Professional electric cooker installation services

A complete, no-nonsense electric cooker installation service for Cardiff, Penarth and Dinas Powys. I can do whatever is necessary to get your electric cooker installed. So don’t risk paying twice! Instead, book me to replace your hob, oven or microwave. It’s as simple as this:

  • Follow my pre-check cooker installation list below.
  • Look online for electric cookers. Purchase your replacement and let me know the confirmed delivery date.
  • Book my electric cooker installation service.
  • I’ll attend, remove the old appliance, test the connection, install the new one and dispose of your old one.

Your electric cooker installation pre-check list

Check the dimensions of your cooking area. Most integrated and free-standing ovens are 600mm wide, although they do come in smaller sizes of 500mm and larger 1000mm. The size of the opening will dictate what cooker you can have installed (unless you are having a kitchen makeover).

Read reviews to see what previous buyers think about the hob, double oven or microwave you are planning to buy before making the purchase. Retailers like ao.com, Currys, and John Lewis sell and deliver quality cookers, often within a few days.

Check you have the necessary power supply. Single ovens are usually plugged in. Double ovens and hobs need their own circuit. If you are replacing your appliances with the same device and the same power rating, you should be good to go. If you currently have a gas oven, then go to your fuse board and look for circuit protection labelled as “Cooker” or “Oven”. A standard cooker circuit will be protected by a 30, 32 or 40 amp device. If this is what you have, that’s good for hobs and double ovens on the market today. If you have nothing labelled to suggest you have the supply, you can send me a photo of the fuse board so I can take a look free of charge.

What happens on the day of installation

I will isolate the supply to your old cooker and remove it from the cooking area upon arrival. I will then re-energise the supply and test the connection. When the electrical circuit protection and cable have passed, I’ll begin to unpack the new electric oven.

Some appliances come with a cooker cable, some (usually the freestanding electric cookers) do not. I will come equipped with everything I need to get your new oven, hob or microwave installed without fuss. I’ll even set the time and make sure it’s all working correctly before leaving.
