A range that is under 12 kilowatts can be fed with 8-3 with ground cable and a 40 amp two pole breaker .. BUT .. that does not anticipate that the next range might be larger, SO I would use a 6-3 with ground cable and a two pole 50 amp breaker. The extra expence of the wire now is nothing compared to the expense of replacing it later.
Either installation would be using the same 50 amp 4 wire range receptacle.

The broiler element comes on by itself when the power is on--it will not turn off unless I turn the power off at the breaker. The bottom element does not come on at all. I get no codes on the display

You have a bad broil-element relay on the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) - the contacts have welded shut (closed). You will need to replace the EOC.

Whirlpool 465 electric range won't heat but has lights

make sure the wires going into the breaker box for the oven are TIGHT. there should be one screw for each of the 4 wires. two on the breaker and two on the busbar. if they are tight, get a meter and measure the voltage coming out of the breaker. measure across the two screws that you checked for tightness earlier. it should be about 220 to 240 volts. if this all checks out the problem is most likely at the range or the connections there. just make sure you shut off the power to the breaker when you tighten the screws with a flat blade screwdriver.

Heating elements

I have a Whirlpool super capacity 465, the surface light for the burners comes on, the burners don't heat up, nor does the oven,(the light that says oven is on does not light up). I checked the main circuit breaker, that works. Are there any fuses in the range that would need to be replaced?
