Need to know the circuit breaker requirement
 
Got a new stove and the label is this:

120/240V , 60Hz: 11.9kw
120/208V , 60hZ: 8.9kw

ac only 60Hz

Trying to determine the required circuit breaker size

thanks

Amps X volts = watts

I get 50A @240V

Check the manual that came with the stove. It should also tell you what gauge wire to use.

49.58 amps @ 240V is what I get. Is this for the entire unit? It sounds about right for a typical 240V stove.
