I have new stove and the plate on the stove state 120/208 120/240

Customer Question

I have new stove and the plate on the stove state 120/208 120/240 27/24 amps, the oven instructions say to put a 20 amp breaker. I have to run wiring for the stove because we are remolding the kitchen. The company will not give me any information on the wire size. But other online appliance stores that sell the same stove are saying u need a 30 amp breaker.
