ge gas range , electrical requirments ? JGB870set1ss
« on: September 12, 2014, 11:31:11 AM »
HI I have a customer who has a ge convection oven  gas push in stove.  The problem is it blows the fuse when convection is used (Probably motor)
But what is the electrical requirments for safe operation, the customer had a 15 amp gfci breaker which he shares with the microwave. than he put in a 30 amp gfci breaker for the stove and microwave  and still blows fuse durning convection.
 
I thought it is suppose to be a dedicated outlet 15 amp ? and not gfci outlet , right ? Is the gfci outlet ok?
 
So what is the correct outlet suppose to be ?
 
tks for your help   JPG

Gfci is the problem. 15 amp is plenty. Run on non gfci circuit

I'de get rid of the GFCI. If it occasionally trips than in my book thats not acceptable.
