What size wire for double oven
I am having a double oven installed as part of my kitchen remodel, and my electrician and appliance guy (who is also an electrician) have given me different answers on what sort of wiring I need. The oven is a kitchenaid double convection with a minimum requirement of 40 amps. The electrician planned to use the 8 gage wire from my old stove. The appliance guy is insisting that, while that may be to code, it isn't enough and he should use a 6 gage wire. The only thing they both agree on is that I am an idiot because I don't understand their technical jargon. Help!
