Customer Question
I need to know...

I need to know what amp I need to use for an electric range.

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I am wondering the correct size breaker I should use? I don't want to carry the wrong amps and that if a problem would throw the breaker easy.
