Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10mm cable Needed 10mm cable in hurry whilst in process of fitting new bathroom. Didn't really need 10 meters but far cheaper than buying a roll. So the rest will keep till needed again

cooker installation

have cooker 13.5 kw to be installed. which cable do i need? the lengh from the cooker to fuse board is 9m , the cable would go in the wall and under the floor. how many amps do we need? what would be the size of the breaker? thanks
Asked by: annarepair
You need to confirm this with a qualified person as we are not responsible for designing your circuit. However the full load for 13.5kW is 59 amps. Applying diversity this is 10A + 0.33x49A(balance) + 5A (socket) = 31 amps. So the minimum breaker is 32 amps. You installation method is not shown in the regs but I would say the minimum size is 10mm². You are correct that twin flat is the type of cable used for these application. Volt drop is not an issue here. Regards

The 10mm twin & earth cables have different amp rates some are 42amp. other 63amp??? Which one is rite

How can the same cable have such a different AMP carrying capacity ?
Asked by: Barl
The current rating depends on the installation method. There is a table in the wiring regulations (Table 4D5) that gives ratings for various installation methods. 10sqmm 6242Y shows *enclosed in conduit in an insulated wall* 44Amps. *Clipped direct* 64Amps. both are based on 30deg.c ambient temperature & both are correct.
