Default Induction Countertop Oven

Running a cir. tomorrow for induction countertop oven. This is all I know as I am blind going into this sort of. From customer

220-240 V

In house ( I think 208??) I'm guessing they will need to buy a 208-240 oven correct ?

NEMA 6-20P cord

Are all induction ovens 3 wire (2 ungrounded, 1 egc) ?? I haven't seen one a 4 wire to date yet?

We are just roughing in wire for now. I'm just going to pull #10's to be on safe side 3 or 4 ?

4 wire there are probably electronics in the oven that require a neutral.

Is that oven made by the same folks who make solar-powered flashlights?

There are induction cooktops.

There are convection ovens.

The principles are pretty much incompatable for the other one's use.

So, what do you really have?

I think you are going to need a neutral. The modern ovens/stove tops all have electronics. 2 years ago I replace mine in my house and it was a four wire set-up. Just like all the new dryers are 4 wire.

Did you try looking up the actual model they want you to install and check the manufacturers specs, it really doesn't matter what you have found in general just what is required for the model they want you to install.

Advantium. Name just popped in my head. That's the name of GE's oven.

Here's a link to the cut sheet. Takes a 14-30R receptacle. Same as a dryer receptacle.

That's what I thought but you have to admit, the word "oven" gave us a different idea of the appliance.
