    Just finishing a rewire, customer not sure on hob and cooker at design stage so I went for 2 circuits with 6mm withe 2 32amp rcbo's. Hob and cooker 5 meters apart. Now induction hob and oven have arrived onsite and both suggest a 13amp supply is suffice. Should I downgrade the rcbo's to 16amp and hard wire into plate or exchange plate for non switched fused spur and leave rcbo as is

    Do they come with plugs?
    Might not want to void a warranty single sockets might be better

    Also 13amps seem quite small for an induction hob unless it’s a 2 ring hob.

    How on earth are they going to void a warranty?

    Are you referring to that utter nonsense about removing a moulded plug voiding the warranty on a whole appliance?

    The RCBOs are to protect the cable not the thing on the end of it. 32 amp RCBOs are OK for 6mm cable. No need to downgrade.

    If they come with plugs, change the outlet plates to 13a sockets and plug them in

    Single oven will be ok.Customer has bought the wrong hob. 13A induction has to load share to work with such limited capacity. They should have bought the full blown 7Kw + model. They will hate what they've bought as soon as they use more than one hob lol.
    As said above, leave the 32A RCBO's place and Spurs or plugtops will be ok.

    Actually you will need complete plugs, not just the tops.

    That’s not quite true. I got simarly lambasted a few years ago on this very subject, and so did some ‘extensive’ research for myself. :)

    Most of the manufacturers don’t give a hoot if you cut their moulded plugs off. However, I did find one or two that did. There were also some that required their original lead replaced, with an manufacturers one, if that is damaged.

    Unfortunately, I never retain my research, so can’t tell you who was being a bit fussy. But recommend you read the instructions before getting out your snips.

    At the end of the day the manufacturer's warranty is in addition to your legal rights. Your legal rights won't be affected by removing the plug. Your legal rights extend to six years as against the manufacturer's typical one year.

    I knew as soon as the word 'plugtop' was mentioned that George would be along. Any how, must dash as I need some MR16 bulbs.
