[Help/Info needed] where can I buy a plug for my electric stove

As the title says, I'm moving to another apartment and the plug for my electric stove kitchen is the one in the photo. I can't find any online shop. Any ideas where can I buy it (either online or in a store, I'm in Geneva)

Many thanks

That looks like an out of date, proprietary, Xamax 3Phase 15A socket from the 70s...


If so, it may be easier to find an electrician to replace it/rewire it directly... You may be able to find a T9 plug in a brockenhouse, but not sure if it's still to code to use them.


EDIT: Have a look here:

Seems like you have T9 socket, which according to that wiki page, distribution is no longer permitted. Depending on load, the T25 (16A) may be the replacement.

If your plug is a normal '3-pin' it will fit this socket.

Might want to advise people to first check the Amps on the connection and the machine, since these can do up to 400V/25A

(And let's not forget that we don't know how the wires inside it are connected)

Many thanks. So if it's not up to code the Regie/owner must change it?

Re: [Help/Info needed] where can I buy a plug for my electric stove

I might have one, as we rewired my 3P extension to hardwired last year after the RASI inspection.

Will have to look, may take some time.

Even 20 years ago those were almost impossible to find (but I did find one, used, at the local electrical supplier).

Nope. New regulations only apply to installations when newly build or renovated/changed. Old installations must be according the rules of that time.
