Installation of Dual Fuel Cookers
Dual fuel cookers and their installation is similar to how freestanding cookers are fitted, however a dual fuel cooker requires both gas and electric sources, in order to function. This should be carried out by a Gas Safe engineer, who has the necessary skills to check that the connection is successful by testing for leaks once the installation is complete. Dual fuel cookers can be larger than normal cookers; therefore appropriate space would be needed for the installation process. The combination of both gas hob burners for visible control of output and electric ovens for baking means there are many advantages to the two supplies. During the installation of dual fuel cookers, the engineer connects a flexible gas hose, to allow the moving of the dual fuel cooker for cleaning purposes, and a hard wire for electrical connection to a plug point.
The electrical supply of dual fuel cookers is usually provided by a radial circuit; not connected to the main household circuit which is protected by a fuse. Any doubts about requirements should be mentioned to the professional engineer during installation. Gas supply may be sourced from the domestic supply or alternatively, in the form of LPG (from a bulk tank supply). It is highly recommended that you never try to tighten or remove a dual fuel cooker as this could be dangerous.
