Question about GE Profile JKP56 Electric Double Oven
What KW Rating (240V) or Recommended Circuit Size should be installed?
You must use a three-wire, single-phase A.C.
208Y/120 Volt or 240/120 Volt, 60 hertz
electrical system. If you connect to aluminum
wiring, properly installed connectors approved
for use with aluminum wiring must be used.
That means that you ned a double 40 amp breaker.

Here is a tip that I wrote about that problem...

The specs for this double oven give a rating of 5.1kW at 208V so it needs a 30 Amp circuit breaker. This assumes that the oven is the only appliance on the circuit. So you should be able to use the same circuit breaker.
A bigger consideration is that the opening for the double oven needs to be larger than that of the single oven. If the opening does not have a solid bottom, it must be able to support a heavier load. The runners and braces under a single oven has to support 200 pounds (91 kg). A double oven must have braces and runners designed to hold 375 pounds (171 kg).
Also check if your household uses aluminum wiring. The new oven has copper and problems will occur at the interface if you do not use the appropriate precautions. (Products designed for mating copper and aluminum are available - follow the directions).
I hope this helps.
(btw: you can find the User's Guide and Installation manual for the double oven at GE's website: http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SpecPage&Sku=JKP35DPBB . See the section Literature and Manuals on the left hand side of the page below the picture of the oven.)

i don't think so. the oven's tempt control is ( the clock and it controls both ovens.) there is a sensor in each oven and they tell the clock what is going on it each oven. if both oven are not correct in there tempt you could replace the sensors first and then the clock. now if cost is a factor I would replace the top oven sensor first and see if it corrects the problem . and if so repl the bottom . and if the first sensor does not correct problem then you need the clock.( e o c ..electronic oven control .) this will not be a cheep repair . sensors are 70.20 ea and the clock 201.60 == hope this has helped mm feed back pls . part # of sensor wb23x5340 and clock wb27t10287 //

Well, 6800W/240V = 28.33 amps, call it 30. Minimum AWG wire size 10ga., if you're running it over about 20' go up to a 8ga. to be sure your oven is fed adequately.
