    It states that above....." a 32 amp outlet for appliances including freestanding electric cookers that consume more than 3KW."

    We could do with some help from you

    32 or 45 amp supply is standard because many ovens and range cookers have high kwh, however as said, many modern ovens come from the factory with a standard 13amp plug.
    Being sold in UK, they must be safe to use by simply plugging them in otherwise they won't be fitted with a standard plug.
    We still don't know if this is the case with the op oven.

    The exploding door surely has got nothing to do with the electrical connection.
    Either the oven was faulty, the glass was damaged or the oven was somehow fitted in a twisted/squashed position so to put the door under mechanical stress.

    Can I call for a pause for a minute.

    The words "oven" and "cooker" keep coming up.

    The OP talks about an "oven",
    I have taken this to mean a built-in or built-under, oven only.

    I define "cooker" to be a full blown electric cooker, ie oven, grill and hob.

    As per the last few posts, I agree an "oven" is ever likely these days likely to come with a 3 pin plug.

    A cooker would NEVER? come with one?

    I think a few of us maybe getting crossed wires here (pun intended...) Maybe OP can confirm?
