this unit requires more then a single 20 amp breaker !

Are you sure it is not on two seperate 20 amp breakers (which is should not be on two breakers , but I have seen some strange things in my day !

it should be on at least a 40 amp breaker.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

its on double 20 amp side by side 2 20 amp it has 20 amp red wire 20 amp black wire

it is on a double 20 amp or two seperate 20 amp breakers

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

they were 2 20 amp seperate they sold me double 20 amp paired together and told me that it is the same

yes it is the same .on the model serial tag ,what does it give for KW rating ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

8.0 and 6.0

ok As per the units use and care booklet on page 6-4 this is what is shows for 8.0 kw rating .

which means you need a double 40 amp breaker on the panel to power the cooktop .graphic
