Supplying a cooker isolation switch (with a socket outlet) via a 20amp RCBO with a 6mm2 T&E clipped direct. (future proof cable)

The oven is only a 12.17amp load. (Gas hob)

Is the 20amp RCBO OK for the oven or is this to high for the oven?

or do I need to fuse down the oven to 13amps

Don't really want to use a 16amp RCBO as the outlet may be used for a kettle as well!

Thanks for any thoughts

That will be fine Nige, as also would a 32 amp mcb. The mcb is there to protect the cable not the appliance.

Provided it meets the oven manufacturer's instructions (some specify a maximum fuse/MCB rating) then all's well.
