Oven Circuit and Dryer Circuit Requirements

How Electrical Circuits are Installed for Dryers, Kitchen Ovens and Ranges to prevent Circuit Overload and Home Electrical Fire Hazards


Separate Circuit for Dryer and Oven
Question: I have a 220 outlet for my dryer. Can I modify it so it will be a double outlet and run my electric oven also? I will hire someone to do this, but I want to make sure I know what I’m asking for. Thanks.
