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.

Good Luck

SOURCE: how to install GE JKP35DPBB 27" Double Electric

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.

SOURCE: I have a GE Profile

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 //

SOURCE: what size wire do I need for a ge profile 27"

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.

What size cable is required for a double oven of 5.7 kw total rating


It does not depends on the Power, kW but on the current A .
With 240 V you have a current of almost 24 ampere. With 110 volt you have a current of more than 50 ampere. So you need a cable at least twice as thick. The you have the law ad regulations in your country. Leave it to the installer to decide what is save. When in a country with 230 to 240 volt I would go for at least 4 mm squared. and when in a country with 110 volt, for the next step, 10 mm squared although that could be on the edge. Play safe? pick 16 mm squared.

Can I use the existing 40 amp double pole breaker?


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!

I will soon purchase a GE Double Oven (no stove top). I need to know what amperage I need to wire my kitchen for. 30? 40? 50? thanks.


A full upright range including 4 hotplates, oven and grill elements is generally rated about 8.0 to 10.0 kilowatts. The normal circuit in Aust. is a 32 amp circuit. Check the kilowatt rating of the double oven but I don't think it will be any higher than 6.0 kilowatt. If so the 30 amp circuit will be fine.

I need to know the circuit breaker fuse size for a flavel milano ML6CDS electric cooker and the cable rating


If your power suply is 240V and the power rating of the ovenis 9.9kw then the expected current consumption is 9900w/240v = 41.25A. Therefore this needs a 8mmsq cable or if not available in your area then use 10mmsq cable. And for the fuse or circuit breaker use 50A

Kitchenaid oven model #KEBC207


this was taken from the installation guide

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search_results.jsp?searchTerm=kebc207&siteCd=WHRCOM#installation_instructions





Oven must be connected to the proper electrical
voltage and frequency as specified on the
model/serial rating plate. (The model/serial rating
plate is located on the oven door or on the oven
frame.)
Models rated from 7.3 to 9.6 kW at 240 volts
(5.5 to 7.2 kW at 208 volts) require a separate
40-ampere circuit. Models rated at 7.2 kW and
below at 240 volts (5.4 kW and below at 208
volts) require a separate 30-ampere circuit

The convection fan comes on intermittently, starts smoking then goes off. Temperature on the display doesn't move from 100F (then it did). My wife left the door closed while it was on broil last night (not sure how long), and this morning I woke up to the smell of burnt electrical and something (one of the fans...? not sure as it was far earlier than I usually get up) running that stopped when I opened the oven door and restarted when I closed it (I'm thinking it was probably running all night). While at work, I turned the breaker off, then pulled the oven out this evening. After taking some of the metal plates off, I put the power back on and turned the oven on for a 450F bake. I don't know if the little cooling fan at the top of the unit is supposed to go on when I have the top exposed and getting plenty of air; it wasn't and it also had a faint burnt electrical smell. After disconnecting then plugging the fan power connector to the circuit board the fan ran for 10-15 seconds before it started smoking and quit. I checked voltage across the fan leads and there wasn't any. I shut the oven off, tripped the breaker, and let it cool. I then tried testing the fan motor directly i.e. bypassing the oven and using a regular outlet since the motor is rated for 120V. It ran for ~1 minute, then smoked and quit. The smoke is definitely coming from the fan rather than any adjoining wires. Is this a case of the fan AND the control board going south or one contributing to the other's demise? I should add that the clock display has been dimming for a couple of years. UPDATE (2/20): I tried just baking (as opposed to convection baking) and the bottom element did come on (I'd reported earlier that it hadn't... that was because I was using convection baking and that does only heat around the fan... just my ignorance on that one). However, the temperature readout on the display did not move from 100F though it was clearly hotter than that in the oven. I then stopped the baking mode and started convection baking. This time the temperature gauge immediately went to 141F and kept climbing. Resistance at the (room temp) temperature sensor (and at the end of the wiring harness plugged into the control board was ~1100 ohms at room temp (as its supposed to be).
