Dining Room receptacle wiring
 
I have to move a plug under a window due to me putting in a sliding patio door in my dining room. I decided that since I had some drywall off and had to move a receptacle, Id bring things up to code. I will have 6 dining room receptacles that I want to add to my kitchen SABC's. There will be no kitchen or dining room lighting on either SABC. What is the best way to wire in the dining room receptacles? Does the dining room have to be Arc Fault protected? If I dont wire the dining room in to the Kitchen SABC's Can I run ONE 20A circuit for the dining room?

Thanks Scott

Ideally a dining room should have it's own 20a circuit.

There is a good chance the existing receptacles are already on the kitchen receptacle circuits.

House was bult in 1964. The receptacles were on the lighting circuit, they have since been removed from that circuit. Now Im trying to figure out if it's better to tie in with kitchen or run separate circuit.

If you have the space I would run a new circuit.
Are you sure the exsisting sabc are up to code?

As far as i know they are.

Circuit 1 has two countertop receptacles gfi protected

Circuit 2 has fridge, 2 countertop receptacles and gas stove receptacle.

That is code correct?

That is correct.

Thanks again for your time!
