Electrical requirements for double wall oven
I am replacing an existing electric double wall oven. Current oven required 40 amps. When I look at my electrical panel, I see it is hooked up to two 30-amp breakers which someone told me would be called "piggybacked" and can be thought of as 60 amps. It just looks like two breaker switches tied together so to reset, they both move together. My question is will my new oven work properly with this double breaker thing (2 X 30 = 60 amps). The new oven calls for 50 amps. Details on new oven below.
