Question about Tappan MEF500 Electric Kitchen Range

GE profile stove, Gas-electric

We are considering a Gas-Electric stove (with electric oven), but found that some ovens are 120 volt. Are these any good ? Should we even consider the 120 Volt option when 220 is available ?
thanks, Philippe

    incredible ! and I thought the consumption was less with a 220 volt because the AMO required would be half that of 110.

    Thank you very much for this. Why then do they make the same Gas/ Electric stove with a 220 option ?

    PS - that means that the Oven element would be standard also?



    thanks again, p :)

All oven elements are 115/130 VAC. Stoves use 220/240 so that you can use both the burners and Oven at the same time. Since the burners are Gas, then 220/240 VAC isn't needed.

(Note: 220 is simply dual 110 hot leads with a common ground)

WE have a GE Stove top Range. The burners aren't


If you have power to the stove as in the oven light works and the clock works but the burners and oven will not work you only have 120 volts coming to the stove. The stove requires 240 volts for the burners and oven to work. Check the service panel for a blown fuse. There will be 2 fuses in the fuse holder. One of them is blown. If that is not the case then one of the wires has come loose either in the service panel or in the outlet behind the stove. Use a multimeter to check the input voltage at the outlet.

Gas oven electrical hookup issue


Hello. I can help you. What you have there at the wall is a circuit with 120 volts of power available. Your Gas oven requires 240 volts of power, thus the additional [red] wire. That said, they do not match up.

You will have to run a 240 volt wire from your electrical panel to rear of your stove opening with the correct circuit breaker in the panel, the correct amperage wire to the stove, the correct receptacle for the stove and the correct plug on the stove.

This is serious electricity here so do not proceed on your own as you could get seriously hurt or worse.

Installing ge profile double oven not convection in new build trying to find out electrical requirements ( size breaker 50,60amp ?)


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
