Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven
Just out of no where, my oven now trips the GFI. If I reset the GFI and and turn the oven on. Once the propane "ignites" it will trip the GFI about 10 seconds later.
My bad, yours is an oven.
I found the Owner Manual, but could not find the Installation Manual. Do you have it, and does it say to hook the oven to a GFI protected power source?
Just because of the way the electronics work in the oven, and the way the electronics work in the GFI, I don't think that they work together. The oven is a permanent appliance, so I don't know of any reason it would need it.
How long have you had this oven installed, and connected to the GFI? Has anything changed, like you washed the oven down and got water inside it. Is a non GFI circuit available nearby where you could wire the oven?
Let me know what you find. It's been awhile since I looked at a new Electrical Code (NEC) book, and even with that, you local ordinances can over ride the NEC.
