Wiring Wall Oven & Cooktop

atw58June 12, 2009

We are planning to replace our stove with induction cooktop and separate wall oven. Typically the cooktops require 40-50 amps and ovens take 20 amps. Just wanted to confirm I must wire 2 separate circuits to each.

Also how do stoves get away with just a 40 amp connection when both the cooktop elements and oven are combined.

Thanks,

Induction cooktops take pretty big circuits. If you were putting in a regular cooktop and a wall oven, you could possibly legally split the stove circuit. Put in the second circuit for the induction cooktop. You'll love it by the way.

At one time, the NEC allowed a cooktop and wall oven to share a circuit. I think it still does, but I'm not totally sure about that.

It is still allowed, but in this case, I would strongly advise wiring a separate circuit for each.
