Installing a Single Built-in Electric Oven | The Carpenter's Daughter
Installing a Single Built-in Electric Oven | The Carpenter's Daughter
Three weeks ago, our oven broke, so we needed to learn how to replace it.
Although it may seem very easy or simple to some, it didn’t to me initially, hence why I felt the need to film it to share with others.
Please note, this is NOT a tutorial, nor is this sponsored. We already had our electrics done for an oven.
We bought this A energy rating 2.1KW one from Amazon called Cookology which “you can attach a normal 3 pin plug” of 13AMP as stated in their listing:

Here’s a video that helped me on why some single ovens can be plugged in and how some need to be wired in:

I’ve ALWAYS wanted a built in oven but never had the confidence to actually buy and install one myself, well you have worked your magic once again! Hmm..I think my old oven is slowly packing in now….😜
It is 8 years old anyway!!
Hmmm. My new oven is 2.3kw, but says is must be hard-wired by an electrician. No plug supplied, and the old oven is hard-wired too. 🙁
Loved your dance at the end vikkie.i had to watch it 3 times 😂😂😂
good and useful information……. that I want THINK YOU DEAR MAM
Hola me interesa el sistema de funcionamiento. Pero cual es su precio gracias
I’m fine with the "less than 3kw oven can use a plug & 13a fuse", however, you don’t mention what size cable you fitted to the oven and plug. What did you use?
Surprising straightforward oven install! 👍
A question NO ONE asks when buying a new appliance, "How long is the power cord?" I guess one could have used the power cable from the old appliance….
What does it mean by hardwired?
Lmao that’s so basic🤣 do people need a tutorial for that too
My blog version here: https://thecarpentersdaughter.co.uk/renovations/installing-a-single-built-in-electric-oven-cookology/
Quick and easy install very good , your old one didn’t last long then and I bet it was twice the price ! 👌
OHM, that is what I need a Halogen Oven, I’m extending my kitchen so living in my living room which has become a part kitchen, Love what your doing!!
Thanks, that was very informative!
I wasn’t even aware that a oven of that size could run off a 13amp plug – its unheard of lol – watching you, well you an your vids is a learning curve every time – if its not you thats impressing me with your handy hands its the knowledge that you come forward with lol – Great stuff CD – Wonder what next 😉
you are extra pretty in this video.
Replace the word Oven with Sex Toy
Don’t you have to line the inside of the cabinet with some heat proof material? Isn’t this risky? Couldn’t the cabinet catch fire?
Hi Vikkie, how’s the Cookology oven doing a few years on? I’ve heard somewhat mixed reports about them…
It seems straightforward but i have the fear of touching cables !
Eerrmm..I think you forgot to mention to turn of the household electricity before removal…!!!
Our oven just packed in and now we need a new one. I’m distraught. Had no idea how on Earth we would get it out to replace it so thank you!!!!!
Most built in ovens are suitable for using on a 13Amp plug. Even if a fan oven are usually OK. The hob whether built in or part of a free standing cooker are the part that take the biggest load. This will have to be connected by 6mm to a 32amp supply. Had a free standing cooker a couple of years ago that was connected with a piece of normal flex used for extension leads. Bearing in mind it was rated at 10.5kw maximum load and the cable itself was damaged too it was soon condemned and disconnected.
Genuinely shocked that all an oven is, is basically a big microwave! That’s easy.
Why did that look so easy…?
Love and support from Kashmir ❤️❤️❤️
Always good to see you make simple a task to those who would otherwise be challenged!
And that you address everything in your own genuine can do it way is refreshing! Been enjoying your videos a while now👍
I did the same thing myself for the first time a year ago, after our Ikea oven stopped heating. As long as you have the identical requirements and set up for the new one you cannot go wrong. The only issue I had was the length of the flex on the new one was half the length of the one on the old one. So I had to half install the oven whilst balancing with one arm and then squeeze my other arm in around the oven to plug it in, not something I want to do too many time….a shame about the Samsung oven as they are usually pretty good brand. Mind you there are not too many manufacturers that want to genuinely help when things go wrong and it looks like you have had a total nightmare from start to finish with that one. The new one looks great and hopefully your days of bodging the oven to get a hot cooked meal is now over.
I do have a question can the oven be installed on any socket from house or must be a special one?
Thank you for giving me the confidence to do this myself; a woman who only had children to help. We managed it so easily that I can’t believe a company were trying to charge £100 for the service.
You need to have an accessible double pole isolating switch fitted.
hello!! how much time does it take to install it?
Alwaysd wondered about these ovens.. do you need ventilation towards the back of the oven ? or does heat come out elseware
Hope you well have lots happy Day’s of cooking 🍔🍟🍕🍞😉
Let me see if I have this correct..1.) World class cook 2.) Drop dead beautiful 3.) Expert at fixing and building things around the house 4.) Articulate and intelligent. 5.) Thrifty. Yes I think that sums it up, can I clone you?
8/10 for the tutorial, 10/10 for the dance at the end 🙂
so it means that just plug in the wire from oven into the wall plug? does it mean that the oven always turned ON? or is there’s any power switch ON/OFF at the oven it self?
Good job I always take the oven housing door off before installing or replacing the oven and put the door back on after the oven is fitted
In the door gets damage
what is installed above this oven , mam ?
LOOKS LIKE A SAMSUNG. STAY AWAY FROM SAMSUNG
Samsung P.O.S. lol.
If only I had realised sooner. I can put the plug on and the her indoors can change the oven. Cant wait till the house needs re-plastering, I can make the tea and ………………….. LOL 😇
Great job!!! I did a similar swap with my dishwasher, the old unit was unfortunately hardwired into the back of an outlet, the new unit did not have a power cord so I repurposed a power lead from a microwave with a plug and was able to Plug it directly into the outlet when installing it, Making future service much easier
your came ouit easy my smeg oven seems to be stuck in the wall
Hey. I’ve currently got a built in Gas Oven and want to change it to an electric one. Was wondering if that would be a difficult job to do myself? If it is who do I ask to come help install it? I can’t find anything online unfortunately. Thanks!!
