What size breaker do you use for a stove?
Click to see full answer .
In this regard, how many amps does a stove use?
A standard kitchen range with four burners and an oven could draw 30, 40 or 50 amps . But a large commercial unit, or one with features like a convection oven or quick-heat burners, draw 50 to 60 amps.
Furthermore, can I use 10 3 wire for a stove? A typical electric dryer, and most combined stackable units, will require a 30A-120/240V circuit using 10/3 cable. This chart indicates that for a common household electric stove /oven at 240V, up to 30A, a 10/3 wire is proper.
Similarly, can I use a 40 amp breaker for a stove?
our stove /oven has 40 amp breaker & rated for 12.5 KW . yes, if you add or need/required to use a 50 amp you will need to use at least 6 gauge wire. if you didn't the 8 gauge wire could get hot & the 50 amp breaker may not trip or click off because it is rated higher. always match the wire to the breaker .
Can you use a 30 amp breaker for a electric stove?
Local and national electrical codes will also apply to the power supply for that range . Using the 30 amp breaker and 6 gauge wiring should not cause any problems as long as the wiring is installed according to your local and national codes. The more restrictive 30 amp breaker is safer than a 40 or 50 amp breaker .
