Hello, welcome to Just Answer/Pearl my name is***** and I will try to answer your electrical question today!

You say you have a black and a white feed conductors , and you have verified this is a 220 volt circuit ?

I looked up your unit online and it says it requires a max load of 17.3 amps, which means by code your conductors need to be #10 gauge and you need to hook this circuit up to 2 pole 30 amp breaker. I hope that answers your questions , if you need me further don't hesitate to ask as this thread will remain open for a few days, also please do not forget to rate me. Thanks for using Just Answer/ Pearl !
