Kitchen receptacle spacing


No, it is a cast iron convector; water not steam. I was planning on having an outlet on either side of the window that it is below. The window is 5' wide so that would fall within the 6' wall spacing rule. I think that I now have all the information I need for this. I will have two outlets per 50" counter and on the same circuit I will have two other wall outlets. The second circuit will be for the two outlets on the smaller counters on either side of the stove plus two more wall outlets. That will give me the two small appliance branch circuits required by code. They will be 20A circuits; GFCI protected. The stove will have a dedicated 15A circuit. The dishwasher will have a 20A dedicated GFCI circuit. The stove will have its own circuit as well. Thanks for all the help everyone!

How long is the counter top that you plan on putting the outlet on? It would be in the CEC regarding this. I live down North of you, and on my counter that is 36" long, there is one outlet in the middle, due to sink base to the left. If 48", two outlets is standard at around 24" apart. I have seen as far as 36-42 inches apart in some homes where I live that are Tract homes.

Frig can be a 15 or 20A dedicated circuit without GFI protection.

I think the spacing may be similar, but there are additional requirements regarding how you run cable and connect the receptacles. Hopefully a Canadian electrician will clarify further.
