Question

Wiring two 240v appliances to one circuit


I am trying to wire a 240v cooktop and a 240v under-counter oven but have 1 240v circuit with a 50 amp breaker. Can I wire the oven and the cooktop to the same circuit via a junction box?

Thanks
Brandon

You need to check each appliance for its rated overcurrent device and size the breakers accordingly. Yes, I said breakerS. Better to run separate circuits.

I understand that in a perfect world I would run two separate circuits but can I wire them together or do I have to pay for the cost of running another circuit through finished walls?
