50A 220V breaker split to oven & cooktop
first time poster -- i have a kitchen in a vacation home (in california) with an ancient GE convention wall oven (220V 50A) and a, similarly ancient, propane cooktop with down draft venting system. The downdraft fan connects to a standard 120V/20A outlet under the counter. For several good reasons, I would like to switch to an electric cooktop and can switch out the oven at the same time. Most wall ovens and electric cooktops require 30A breakers. First, is it acceptable (code-wise) to gang both units off the same 50A breaker, assuming I can find an oven and cooktop with less than 50A draw combined ? Second any ideas on combos that would meet this requirement ? I've seen a GE oven at 20A (but very expensive) and i've seen 2 burner electric cooktops at 20A, but I really need 4 burners in the cooktop. Any ideas or advice appreciated.
