Question about Hobart HEC501-208V Electric Single Oven
I have a HEC40 Hobart 2 Dec oven. My electrician says it is a 208 volt but we ahve 240 volt in the building. Can a 208v oven be hooked to a 240v system? Is there a wiring change in the HEC40 that will allow it?
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.

**Before installing the oven have a qualified electrician verify that your home is provided with adequate electrical service and that the addition of the oven will not overload the branch circuit on which it is to be installed. A separate three-wire or four-wire single phase, 240 Volt, 60 Hz., or a 208 Volt, 60 Hz. branch circuit is required.**
I'm not sure how clear this will come out when I post it, so if it is not acceptable let me know. I can send you the complete installation guide "pdf" via email if you post an email address.
I'll watch for your reply, good luck. Thank you for choosing FixYa today for your inquiry.
