What is a cooker switch?

A cooker switch is a type of electrical switch usually installed near a hob or oven. Its main purpose is to supply electricity to the cooker or oven when required and separate the heavy electrical load of operating an oven or hob from other electrical appliances in the home or kitchen.

They typically feature an isolator switch and a neon indicator to show whether the power is on or off.

Why are cooker switches important?

A cooker switch acts as an important safety feature by allowing you to isolate the power to your cooker when it is not in use. This reduces the risk of accidents, such as electrical shocks or fires, that can occur if a cooker is left connected to the mains power supply continuously or if the power supply needs to be turned off quickly in an emergency.

What safety considerations should be taken when selecting a cooker switch?

When installing a cooker switch, it is important to locate it somewhere it can be easily accessed for everyday use or in case of an emergency, but out of reach of children or where it can be easily knocked or bumped into. Don't forget to regularly inspect your cooker switch for discolouration or signs of wear and tear. Always consult with an electrician when installing or replacing a cooker switch to ensure safety and proper functionality.

How do you know if a cooker switch is compatible with a particular cooker?

Check the technical specification of your cooker and identify the correct voltage and amperage and amp rating required for the switch. If you're unsure, it's recommended to seek advice from an electrician or the cooker manufacturer. An incompatible switch can lead to various issues like a blown fuse, damaged wiring and even fire hazards.

What is the difference between a cooker switch and a cooker control unit?

A cooker switch is a simple on/off switch that is typically mounted on the wall near the cooker. A cooker control unit usually includes a double pole switch and socket for using an additional appliance. Safety and installation regulations can vary between the two, so it is important to consult your electrician for installation.
