Amps required for new range?
Hello, I have a recently built home, electric range, whose circuit has a 40Amp breaker. I'd like a new induction range, but the one I'm interested in has a 50A rating.
Can the breaker be changed? Or would that require new wiring (and many holes in the dry wall)? Or can I just plug my new range into the existing outlet and reset the breaker if I'm ever ambitious enough to try using all the burners and broiler at the same time? Would I have trouble with enough current to run a self-cleaning oven?
