Pulling 120V outlet from a 240V circuit?
I'm hoping for some advice. I recently installed a built in oven with a gas drop in range on top of it. The oven is 240v requiring a 30 amp circuit (hard wired in a junction box) and the range is 120v needing a 15 amp circuit (it has a grounded plug). I'm planning on running a new circuit for the oven using 10-3 NM with a 30 amp double breaker and install an old work box in the wall to wire it. Now my question, Can I just run a some 10-2 nm from 1 hot wire, the neutral and ground from the 240 line up to a second old work box for the outlet or do I need to run a new circuit for the 120v outlet? All this work will be done in an adjacent cabinet
And a follow up, will there be any issue using a 15 or 20 amp duplex plug (for the range) on the circuit? Should I install a 120v 30amp outlet and use an adapter to go from the 30amp outlet to the 15amp plug
