Mar 9 '16 at 23:38 comment added ArchonOSX Ahh, yes I see it says "counter-mounted cooking units" in Article 250.140. I knew of the exceptions for existing range and dryer circuits. Thanks for the tip.
Mar 9 '16 at 23:23 comment added Speedy Petey @ArchonOSX, it was and still is allowed for replacement household cooking appliances and dryers. There is still an exception for previously complaint existing circuits. For instance, if this circuit were run in SEU cable they would be allowed to connect the new 120/240V cooktop to it with the ground bonded to the neutral. ....See NEC 250.140

Mar 9 '16 at 22:42 comment added Harper - Reinstate Monica Oh, I'm afraid it was. It is a terrible practice. A lost ground/neutral guarantees shock.
Mar 9 '16 at 20:07 comment added ArchonOSX Not only is the bonding of the neutral and ground not advisable, it is no longer allowed by the National Electrical Code for ranges and dryers in new installations. I don't think it was ever allowed for cooktops.
