Breaker Size For Electric Range

I bought a Kenmore Elite Electric Range from the Sears Outlet Store about 5 years ago in anticipation of a timely kitched remodel. It is now time to install the wiring for the range. Model # 790.99513302 Serial # NF45126251. The tag on the oven indicates: 120/240 Volts & 15.30 KW. Questions 1.) What will maximum current draw be at full load? 2.) Recommended Breaker Size? My caculations indicate 63.75 Amps. I figure this is at start-up with everything on high. I would really like to use the extisting 3/4" conduit and purchase a 60 Amp breaker. What thinks the expert?

having to know the proper breaker breaker size for the range is important. i have taken the time to research on the manage my life website and have located a few links that you may find useful. while you are waiting for a detailed expert reply i have attached the links below.

the portion of the contractor spec sheet that provides the breaker/wire size is shown in the image below. that range will need a 40 amp breaker with 8 gauge copper wire according to that data. this should be the information that you need to install that range. i assume that you already have the installation guide. if you need more help, let us know.
