Just a question for you guys, I don't do much resi so I'm not too sure. A homeowner is looking at a new induction range and on the site of the range, the specs say range amperage - 52.5A then under that, it says minimum circuit size - 40A. Should I run a 50A circuit with #6 to be safe or do you think a 40A cct would be good?

Thanks in advance

How far back do you think that applies?:blink:
It might just be a city code of ours. I will have to check it out. We can only run al to a disconnect or sub panel from the main panel though.

Do you think I should run a 50 or 40 amp circuit there? It says min 40A on the spec but I'd hate for it to start tripping for some reason

#8 is good for 50a
In the US only #8cu (THHN) in conduit, or MC cable, in general is good for 50A.
#8NM is good for 40A.

Tie the microwave into the stove circuit. The stove circuit is 240 volts. That is what you need to operate your microwave correctly. I bet that your hot dogs are taking too long to cook in the microwave, aren't they.


Problem solved, next question please!
