Replacing single drop-in range (oven/stovetop) with separate unit
I'm looking to replace a single unit drop-in (combination oven/stove top) with separate stove top and oven (in the same location). Right now, the unit has a single 60amp circuit running to it. Is there a way, or is it code, to basically branch this wiring to the two separate units, or daisy chain them somehow? Maybe just terminate the circuit into an electrical box in the space, then have wires run to the stove top out of the box, and then others to the oven?
I would rather not run a new circuit, but if I have to, then no huge deal... since the current combo unit runs off the existing 60 amps, I would think two separate units would just as easily run off 60 amps... it's just a matter of how the wiring works.
