To calculate the current the equation is Watts divided by Volts. 3600 / Volts = Amps The current should be less than or equal to 80% of the Breaker Size. For example a 30 amp breaker should carry no more than 24 amps continuously.

Majority of the Maytag double oven (gas) should fit into a space built for a regular standard oven (gas) except for one or two larger size Maytag double oven(gas).

a 30 amp breaker will work. the formula is power divided by voltage and then use next size up

Usually a double pole 30 amp breaker for and electric dryer.

3000 / 240 = Amps. You de-rate a breaker by 20 % for continuous load like an oven. You could get by with a 20 Amp breaker and 12 AWG wire. However, I would recommend 30 Amps and 10 AWG for an oven for the long run.

25 amp breaker

that would really depend upon the stove (I assume that you mean an appliance with an electric cooktop and an electric oven) and the size of the wire present. Most of the time a stove will require a 50amp breaker. This will mean that you would need to have 6 gauge wiring. You can probably get by with a 40 amp breaker and 8 gauge wire if you absolutely had to. Always check the appliance specifications. they will recommend a breaker size.

A breaker is sized by the wire size. The wire is sized by the amperage. The formula for amperage is I = W/E. Amps = Watts/Volts. As you can see with no voltage stated an answer can not be given.

About 30' wide is the oven size recommended for a 20 lb. turkey. This oven can be a free standing, free standing double, or slide-in model.

A 30 amp breaker run 75 feet would require you use AWG #10 wire. But, an oven normally pulls more that 30 amps and I would not use #10 wire on a 30 amp breaker for an oven. Normally any newer oven is wired with AWG #6 gauge wire on a 50 amp circuit breaker so the breaker will not trip during heavy use of the oven. Some older ovens could use a #8 wire on a 40 amp breaker.

Branch circuits are protected by the circuit breaker found in the electrical panel. Each circuit should have its one breaker. The breaker should be rated to protect the insulation of the wire, so you can determine the breaker size based on the circuit conductor size Example #14-2 should be protected by a 15 amp breaker

Ovens typically run at 240 volts which will be a two pole breaker in your panel. Watts = volts x amps. 4800 / 240 = 20 amps. If by chance you are using 120 volts then double it to 40 amps. All wiring must conform to size of breaker used.

20A

Technically it's a 20 amp load (20A x 240V = 4800W). However, you should not run a breaker at full load. The breaker is to protect the wiring from overheating and from short circuits. You should use 10 gauge wire and a 30 amp double pole breaker.

30 amp breaker with #10 gauge copper wire

NEFFs oven product line includes single and double ovens. They have 21 different single ovens and 14 double ovens. Each oven varies in terms of specs. The double ovens provide a bottom (Main oven) and a half size top oven.

The size breaker you use is determined by the size wire used in the circuit. If you use AWG #12/2 wire then use a 20 amp breaker. If you use AWG # 14/2 then use a 15 amp breaker.

That would be a 40 amp 220v circuit. Circuit breaker is 40 amps and wire is 8 awg. Should use solid copper wire. Follow oven installation instructions.

24 inch. I suspect this is the size of the opening for it, the oven itself is probably smaller.

You use the correct size breaker depending on the size wire in the circuit. If the circuit is wired with AWG #12 wire use a 20 amp breaker. If it is wired with AWG #14 wire then use a 15 amp breaker.

For a standard fridge, a dedicated single pole 15 or 20 amp breaker will do the job.

The correct wire size for a 15 amp breaker is a #14 wire.

Add up your amps to calculate your breaker size. Add up your loads (amps), divide by 0.8, and choose that size breaker. If that number does not correspond to a standard size breaker you go to the next higher standard size breaker.
