Make sure the oven is wired for 240! The unit can operate at both voltages but the wiring on the inside must be set for 240, If it is wrong the unit will work but not properly and you may damage some components.

Hi,

Rule of live by: Each unit must have its own breaker. Cooktop needs 30 amps and a double oven needs 40 amps. Never combine the unit as the amps flow if too high can cause the wires to melt. I hope this helps. Be safe!

Calculating necessary breaker size using ohms laws, says 3000 watts at 240 volts would use 12.5 amps and most range circuit breakers are 30 amp so it should be find

I can't find an online manual for the model of the appliance you are talking about, so I'm unable to figure out the wattage it draws. Nor do I know where you are in the world and the voltage you are running at, so I can't tell you straight off. But I can tell you how to figure it out very easily:

I imagine that know what your main power supply voltage is (either 240 volt or 110 volt).

You can look at the appliance and there will be a data sticker with the wattage rating on it somewhere (or it will be in the install/Owner manual).

Now you have these 2 bits of information we can do a simple sum:

Watts divided by Volts = Amps

Therefore example calculations look like this:

If you have a 500 watt appliance on a 240 volt system 500/240 = 2.083 so use a 3 amp fuse

An appliance with a 750 watt motor on 240 volts: 750/240 = 3.12 so use a 5 amp fuse

A 2KW (2000 watt) appliance like a hot air blower on a 240 volt system: 2000/240 = 8.33 amps so use a 10 amp (or more commonly 13 amp) fuse

A 500 watt motor on a 110 volt supply 500/110 = 4.5 so use a 5 amp fuse

A 1KW (1000 Watt) appliance at 110 volts: 1000/110 = 9.09 amps so use a 10 amp (or more commonly 13 amp) fuse

etc etc etc.....

If the sum comes out below 13 amps, you can use a 13 amp plug. If it doesn't you need to hardwire it into a proper cooker supply.

An oven uses both 120 & 220 -- actually it would be 120 volts and 240 volts or nominally, 110 volt and 220 volt.

The 120 is used for the lights. The 240 is used for the heating elements.

A 240 volt breaker (nominally 220 volt) -- supplies both 120 and 240 volts depending on how the supply is connected to the appliance.

There will be a 240 volt (nominally 220 volt) breaker in the main panel for the oven. This is two 120 volt breakers side-by-side with their toggle switches connected together with a strap across the top of the toggles.

It should have a 50 amp circuit. Have an electrician run the proper circuit for you according to the manual.

The wave guide cover is a simple fix the problem being that after it is replaced you should have a leak check performed I dont know if you have a source to rent a refractomemter to perform this test. Most honest service companies will have a ref meter to check for rad leakage.

The only difference should be the elements. Consider installing a buck-boost transformer. It may be cheaper.

The Hobart part number for the 240 volt element assembly is --

# 342170-00002. Your local Hobart can get you a price.
