Question about GE JTP45 Electric Double Oven
I have recently purchased a white GE Double Electric Oven from a church salvage sale. It was only used for 3 months, then sat at the church for a couple years. It has all the parts and pieces, except for a manual. I need to get this oven installed, but have no idea on the specs and measurements required. The space it will be going into currently holds a single oven with deep wood drawer cabinets underneath, that I have to gut and remove to make room for the taller unit. I am looking for an installation guide/manual, be it online or hardcopy. If you can help, I'd appreciate it!
Model # JTP45WOW1WW
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.)
