Pledge us on Patreon @ https://www.patreon.com/HouseImprovements Shannon from https://www.house-improvements.com shows you how to a range receptacle is wired.
In this video we are installing a range plug that is rated for up to 50Amps. Most all ranges only require 40Amp breakers so in most areas you will have a 40 amp 2 pole 240V breaker for your range ,you will run min. #8 gauge 4 conductor wire from the breaker to the range location and then install the proper metal range receptacle box and range receptacle. If you are actually requiring 50amps for your range then this same receptacle can be used and a 50amp 2 pole 240V breaker. the wiring would need to be increased in size as well to minimum #6 gauge 4 conductor wire. If any of this is un clear please consult a professional electrician.
