Question and Answers

Q:

What is the maximum amps that my double oven uses? Also, what is the breaker size?

A:

I don't have the ratings or the installation information on that older Maytag oven. There should be a model number plate that shows a KW rating and other information on the oven. That type of oven will probably require at least a 30 amp breaker. It may require a 40 or 50 amp breaker. Without the original installation information, I cannot determine the size of breaker that it requires. A local electrician can normally determine the breaker size using the rating on that model number plate if you can find that information.

That type of oven would probably draw a maximum of about 25 amps with both ovens operating.
