How many amps does this pull ?
Is it 4 or 3 wire ?
Do you have an outlet there allready ?

Glenn says single circuit 50 amp breaker. This does not make sense. When going from a double oven with 40 amp and 8 gauge wire to single oven with 12 gauge wire, why would we increase the amps? Seems to me we should go to a 20 amp with a smaller gauge wire. No one seems to know the answer. I am of course a neophyte, but some of this just doesn't make sense to me

Hi

 

I can not find the spec for your oven.

 

What does the name plate on the oven give for wattage and voltage?
