Question about Cooktops
Replacing 15AMP unit with 20 AMP,will new unit be compatible with wiring, or do I have to replace the wiring, or just a new 20 A fuse.
Never...ever change the fuse rating upward on an existing circuit to accomodate a new appliance. The fuse is a protective device designed to limit current to the level the wiring can safely handle. There is a strong possibility of fire at some point!!!!
If you are rewiring, most places require up to 30 amps for cooktop wiring anyway. Use #10 copper wire for that purpose. If you are doing this yourself, make all connections tight and install all grounds.
