First of all you should find out what supply you have: single-phase (monophasé
) or three-phase (triphasé
). Check your meter and main breaker, the disjoncteur de branchement
. There should be a written indication about nombre de pôles
. Or have a look at your EDF bill
, the details of your abonnement, back side (verso
), bottom of the page: caracteristiques de votre tarif
Second: because connecting an appliance either in single-phase, or three-phase involves some reading, have a look at this earlier forum discussion
. Your UK cooker will be single-phase, and with a bit of luck it can be connected in three-phase: replacing a few jumpers.
Third: if your installation électrique
is single-phase, there should be a fuse or MCB of 32 A in the consumer unit, feeding and protecting a special socket in the kitchen.
Last: your plug, or do you mean socket, is probably single-phase, one phase (F), one neutral (DN) and one earth.
And: welcome to this forum.
