Normal Amp of Electric Oven (oven only no cook top)


HI;

Still working on my parents house with my dad, that is progressing nicely, and I am starting to take some time to look at my own projects again.

I am going to put some EMT into my kitchen for the oven before I put the sub floor back down.

We are going to have a electric oven only, we will have a gas cook top. In terms of planing size of conduit / what else is going to go into the run back to the panel, I want to make an educated guess at Amps / wire size.

Do oven only units like this typically run on 30A / 10awg THHN? Or do they tend to still be up in the 40A range like typical electric oven/cooktop combos?

Thanks
Jamie

Anywhere from 30-60 amps. Mine is on a 50 and is supplied by 6 awg. Maybe run the conduit and pull once you have the oven? Leave some room to float between 4 10 awg or 3 6s?

Thanks. I am glad I asked. I will run 3/4" over to be safe and pull once I have the oven in. I had no idea some of them pull that much.

Is yours a double oven or with a high power broiler that it needs so much power?

Thanks
Jamie

I think its the broiler that pulls the most. I just read, and it requires a 40 amp breaker. 50 was in for upgrades I think.
