Can 36" BlueStar RNB + hood be on same circuit?

The title says it all. Can we put the range and the range hood on the same circuit?

Ugh. Nevermind. I thought I had read that it needed to be on its own circuit. But it doesnt say that. it says it shouldnt be on a circuit with a microwave oven. So it seems like having the range + hood on a circuit together is fine, right?

I have a Viking gas range and remote exauster on the same circuit. I'm sure it's nowhere near 15 amps.

The BS guidance used to be that the range needed to be on a dedicated circuit. The idea was to prevent the igniters from randomly sparking due to electrical noise (also an issue if fluorescent lights on same circuit, IIRC). That was more the issue than the load on the circuit. Don't know if that's still the case.

If at all possible, I'd do it to be safe.

Gas ranges don't take much electricity.... only when ignitors are lighting the gas. The glow plug in the oven probably pulls more electricity- again only for a minute or two.

Sorry- I wasn't clear. I'm definitely not concerned about the load on the circuit. I'm not sure if they still want the dedicated circuit to prevent random sparking. I'd still do it, though.

When I spoke to them, they only cared about the polarity at the outlet.
