Is it easy to change a gas hob to electric?
3 Answers from MyBuilder Electricians When changing from a gas to electric hob, first of all the gas connection needs to be made safe (capped off by a gas safe engineer). Then the rating of the new electric hob which will generally be around 5.8kw for a ceramic or 7.5kw for an induction needs to be considered.

If the installation instructions insist on one, then you do not need an isolator switch for any appliance. The circuit breaker can be a point of isolation according to the regs.
Are gas safety certificates registered online?

Gas regulations now prevent the use of bayonet connections. You need to get a Gassafe registered engineer to carry out the work. Incorrect, a flexible hose can be used on a gas hob provided it is not exposed to either mechanical or heat damage.
