Testing the Circuit for Your Kitchen Stove

How to a Test a Kitchen Stove Electrical Circuit when trying to connect or install the stove


Test the Electrical Circuit to Make Sure
Question: I’m trying to connect the stove after an entire kitchen remodel.

I don’t want to burn up a brand new stove

Thanks for your electrical question Gary.

How to a Test a Kitchen Stove Electrical Circuit

  1. Identify the voltage and amperage requirements for the stove,
  2. Examine the outlet to see if it is the same voltage and amperage as the specification.
  3. Check the circuit breaker amperage rating and verify that the wire gauge and type is correct.
  4. This is important because not all stoves are exactly alike, some are 120 volts while others may be 240 volts, and the required circuit amperage must match the circuit that has been installed.
