Dual wall oven rated at 30a, use 30a breaker?

I know this is a dumb question, but is 30a the proper breaker to use? This is a 220v unit of course. I am replacing an old wall oven and want to double check!

Thank you.

Check with the manufacter specs I know with single wall oven typically use 20 or 30 amp circuit but for double wall oven units I know they take either 30 or 40 amp circuit so check it out ahead before you get the new wall oven to make sure the wiring is good shape.

If you have alum conductors pay attetion to the connection they are little more flicky with it we will help you in little bit but before we can go further let us know if you have copper or alum conductor.

I know alot of older place useally have 3 conductors in place but if you have to run a new circuit due the double wall oven require larger circuit then run full 4 conductor { hot et hot et netural et ground }

The answer will be based on NEC ( National Electrical code ) or CEC ( Cananda Electrical code ) or ECF ( Electrique Code France )
