30 or 40 amp circuit for this double wall oven?

seang86sJuly 10, 2008

Can I install a 10 gauge, 30 amp circuit for this Electrolux double wall oven? The spec sheet says:

 Amps @ 240 / 208 Volts = 33.3 / 28.9 Amps

I was planning on an 8 gauge, 40 amp circuit but I'm having trouble sourcing the cable (I already got the breaker from my local home center).

Here's the original spec sheet: http://www.electroluxicon.com/files/international_english/0-999/E30EW85ESS_specs.pdf

No, the spec is 33 amps so you must use a 40A breaker with at least #8cu.
