Adding a 220V line for new range
Purchased a dual fuel range. Electric oven requires 220V. Can I run a 220V wire myself? Have little experience with electricity but understand that I'll need to deenergize, find (or install) a double breaker to which the two hot lines will be connected,take the wire from the basement to the point in the kitchen where the range will be located, and install the 220V receptacle. The receptacle is the only thing I'm not sure of. Do I find a stud and attach it like the 110 receptacles have been installed? Does a 220V receptacle sit in the wall like the 110V receptacles, or must they be attached to the face of the wall? Got a bid for $215 for this work and then I'm tied to the electrician's schedule which might not work in time for the range delivery. And could use the money elsewhere.
