What size breaker do you use for a stove?

The suggested circuit breaker size for the kitchen stove is 50 amps, 220 volts. This is a double breaker . Single breakers normally carry 110 volts. It must be a dedicated circuit for the stove only, meaning that no other appliances or outlets can be served by that circuit.

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 .
