Switching from 15 amp range hood to 20 amp dedicated circuit
We're switching from a 15 amp range hood that is on a shared circuit with other lights to a 20 amp dedicated OTR circuit. My question is what do I do with the 15 amp line? Do I just cut the end back to the sheathing, cap the end and run it into the new box I plan on putting in for the new circuit or can I do something else?
if the 15 amp (14 gauge?) branch circuit services additional loads as you said, it must remain, whether or not it can stay in the same physical location is up to you. the new 20 amp circuit will need 12 gauge wire and 20 amp breaker. i don't know what "otr" represents.
