on the cooker panel, the cooker will be hard wired, then there will be a 3 pin plug socket, for Irons or kettles, and a tiny little red (sometimes screwed in) draw that houses a 13 amp fuse, replace that fuse with something heavier, then use your 13 amp plug, but remember to replace the 13 amp fuse after your party smiley1

don't DARE do it if it's corporate
Fact of the matter is, have heard of this going on with big sound systems from year dot.
Mykey regarding tapping into the "kitchen supply", I have heard of various techniques.
Question is, how could you tap in there, and leave faceplate on?
Sparkie also told me "something" about the plug socket on these cooker switchplates, is this true ?
bee wrote: lev im not recommending doing this...... but if you wanted to do it........ put your wires into the back of the faceplate with existing wires live, neg and earth..... then screw the faceplate back on not tight just so the face plate holds in position....... you wont get a shock even if you touch the face plate.... you will only get a shock if the wires arnt screwed in properly. can post pic if you want....... ive done this before when my amps kept tripping the rcd on the fuse board at a house party i was at....... Warning warning warning allways turn the fuse box off before opening........ allways use an electrical screw driver to make sure the power to cooker faceplate is turned off...... playing with electrics kills. allways be very carefull........
