To install electric stove ...what is the recommended and required amps number

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR APPLIANCE before beginning any service procedure.
Most of the electric ranges have either a 3 prong or a 4 prong gray electric cord that usually has a 220 plug, follow the color wires and match them to the wiring panel in back of the range. I am not sure on the amps, you may want to check with your local appliance dealer and also the customer’s owner’s manual, so check on the plug in the wall and then purchase the correct plug according to the number of prongs in the outlet and once installed level the range with the leveling legs. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local appliance dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. You did not give me a brand name or model # so check with the silver tag on the actual appliance and sometimes that will tell you the number of amps.
Thanks, Don – The Appliance Man

Electric service requirements


Number 6 wire and a 40-50 amp breaker. Anything smaller will overheat and become a fire hazard, especially at 139 feet.
