Really struggling to find a 30A electric cooktop, most of them are 40A and we have the Jenn Air JEC9530 that is running on two #10 wires to a double 30A breaker.
I finally found a cooktop that says it only requires 30A, but the manual says it must be run on #8 wire.
I do not know what I should do, the electric line for my cooktop runs from my kitchen through the foundation all the way to (who knows where) before finally ending up in the breaker box on the far side of the garage wall.
Edit: I just looked at the serial plate for the JEC9530 and it says 7.5kW which should be a 40amp breaker right? Yet it's running on a dual 30A breaker with #10 wire...
Edit 2: We are looking at two cooktops, G9CE3065XB or LCE3010SB. I found a manual that states the G9CE3065XB will run on a 30A breaker fused at both ends but the manual still says #8 wire. Here's a link to that manual, search for G9CE3065 https://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/81/816870c8-4d4b-431b-916f-6ad03d647630.pdf
