I 'm in the midst of a kitchen renovation and I'd like some advice on the wire gauge for a built in oven.
The oven is the the only electrical appliance on the circuit and supplied directly from the panel. The cooktop is gas and it's electrical needs will be supplied by a separate 15A circuit.
The oven manufacturer calls for a 30A circuit and lists 7300W in the specs.
I'm inclined to use 10AWG because of the 30A circuit but in some other on-line material I've seen a suggestion that says 10AWG is suitable for 30A appliances with power draw lower than 7200W.
I'm a little bit confused. Does the 7300W rating have any impact on the wire gauge selection of is the 30A circuit the overriding factor?
