Kitchen fitters ‘Electrician’

A recent job was to find out why a cooker kept tripping the electrics, we discovered 2 ovens installed on the 32A kitchen ring main, they required a dedicated 20A supply each!

The kitchen fitters ‘Electrician’ should have known this and the picture is how he had connected it all up, disgraceful.

Sadly this scenario is all too common with unqualified trades carrying out electrical work when they really shouldn’t be touching it.

You should never be afraid to ask if an electrician is qualified to carry out the work, because to work in your home they should be registered with either NICEIC, Elecsa or Napit and you can only do this if you’re qualified, competent and insured.
