Need help locating junction box for new install


Hi experts! I'm remodeling my kitchen and have come to the point of installing junction boxes for my built in oven and cooktop. The cooktop will be located directly above the oven (GE says this is allowed for these particular models).

The cooktop is 30" wide induction model that has a 40 amp rating. I have run 3 conductor 6ga copper for this. The oven is a double oven in a single oven footprint. It requires a 220v 20amp circuit which I have run a 12-3 cable for.

My problem is I have limited space behind the oven and below the cooktop to mount the junction box (these units don't use plugs). I'm hoping someone might have the time to look at the below urls and look at the installation pdf's for these two units. The oven is fairly specific on where to locate the box but not the cooktop.

I guess one possibility is to use only one junction box. Just wasn't sure if that would be large enough.

Thanks in advance,

Rut

Your link for the oven does not work.

The cook top is 50 amps not 40.

The cooktop shouldnt go all the way to the floor. You could always wait until appliance is on site to make your decision.

Sorry. I was trying to link directly to the installation pdf. Here is the link to the oven itself.

The oven installation says to put the jbox 22" above oven floor (actual floor + cabinet floor height). Not sure if the cooktop jbox can go above that or not.

That is where I would put both boxes.
