Installing new oven - what power cable?
« on: September 11, 2017, 10:50:31 AM »
Our oven has finally given up the ghost after lasting longer than we ever expected it to. I have the replacement in our kitchen, and am planning to wire it up myself. However, the manual specifies H05VV-FG cable, and the closest thing my local hardware store offers is H05VV-F cable. Can anyone advise if this is okay to use as a substitute, or does the missing G represent something crucial?

I used google to find;
SIGNAL & POWER DELIVERY SYSTEMS, the worlds premier power cord mfg.
They say most people associate H05VV-F harmonized power cable wire with Europe, our certifications include Australia, China, India, Korea and many other countries as well.

Google doesn't find H05VV-FG

I'd take the amperage of the oven to the store and ask them for the proper cable.
