Hi and Welcome to Just Answer,

 

Ok, let's take a look at this;

Since you are Most likely connecting 220/240 you will need to use 6 Gauge wire You will need to make sure that there is 6 gauge/3 wires inside the cable you choose

If this is a Kenmore cooktop / stove combination and a 50 Amp Breaker.
