Question and Answers

Q:

Electrical connection requirements? 79097503000 Kenmore Elite Electric range

A:

I checked the contractor specification sheet for that range. The KW rating for the range and the normal breaker/wire size is shown in the image below. That breaker/wire size is a manufacturer specification based on the KW rating of the range. It indicates that a 50 amp breaker with 6 ga. copper wire size is recommended for that circuit. Local and national electrical codes must also be followed when providing a power supply to that range. If you provide the information below (KW rating) to your local electrician, the electrician should be able to advise you whether a 40 amp breaker will meet the local and national codes based on the type and size of wire that you have routed to the electrical outlet for that range location at this time.

 

I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.
