Electricity is dangerous!

You can be injured or killed!

Improper installations can cause fire, injury and death!

Should you be doing this yourself?)

From NEC Table 220.55

The combination of elements in this unit sound like 14 kW.

The demand for a 12 kW range is 8kW. There is an allowance of 5% for each kW over 12, which makes this a demand load of 8.8 kW. At 240 volts, that is a load of 36.7 amps, which would call for a 40 amp circuit.

The ampacity controls cable size.

Cable type and insulation control ampacity.

As an example, copper # 8 gauge non-metallic sheathed cable would have an ampacity of 40 amps, which would be acceptable. Aluminum cable would have to be a # 6 gauge.

The Authority Having Jurisdiction has final say.


<><><> I don't know of any Professional Electrician who would install aluminum wire inside a residence or business. That being said, you are in over your head and should hire a pro to advise and install your ovens and burners. Electricity and it's wiring is dangerous. Home Depot and Lowes associates are not Licensed Electricians! ( If they are, they are not very good.)


As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed. Before you do any work yourself,

on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,

always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

Why do people install circuit breakers in their homes?

Circuit breakers protect your home by stopping the flow of electricity if there is too much amperage draw. If there were no circuit breakers installed, then you could overload wires; when too much is plugged into a circuit, or the circuit shorts out, the wires can heat up very quickly and cause a fire. Circuit Breakers prevent this by disconnecting the circuit before the wires get hot enough to catch fire.
