Is it legal for me to fit my own electric oven?

My oven has stopped working and I have ordered a new Smeg electric oven. Do I need to have a qualified electrician come round and fit it or can I just get on with fitting it? Is it like a boiler where an electrician needs to issue a safety certificate?

You can install the oven yourself

Hi Rebecca, it is legal for you to swap the oven over if you feel confident to do so. The main difference is we would also carry out electrical tests on the circuit that we are connecting it to to confirm that everything is working correctly. If you have any questions please feel free to contact myself on 0808 155 0887 or 07876 232657. Sean

Only if you are comfortable doing so and feel you have the expertise.

This is something that you should really have a competent person do if in doubt call an electrician £50 is cheaper than risking a life if u get it wrong
