    Hi Charl,

    Connection to the Power Supply:
    The Defy 835 has a type ‘Y’ supply cord connection which must be connected to the mains through an All pole isolating switch which has a minimum clearance between the contacts of 3 mm. In All poles. A means for disconnection must be provided in the fixed wiring. This appliance must be earthed.

    The power consumption is printed on the serial number label attached to the stove upper back panel of the appliance.

    The Defy stove is best installed by a licensed electrician, who will ensure that the oven is correctly connected and safely earthed.

    I hope this helps,

    I have bought a Defy Model 835 stove and want to connect it to the main power supply
    there are three wires that needs to be connected to the stove (red, black and green/yellow)
    I’m not sure where to connect it on the stove. Could you please assist me.

    Hi Evan,
    It would be very helpful to know what country your are located in and the exact make and model number of the new stove. In the mean time I would refer to the installation manual which came with the new electric stove for complete wiring accuracy and reliability.
