I am in the USA.
I want to change my propane stove to an electric stove.
I have read that I should put in a 50 amp outlet with 6 gauge wire. The employee at the big-box store said I could make it easy on myself by using a surface mount box and run the wire up through the floor. Most likely, through the hole that will be left behind when I remove the gas line.
I asked if the wire needs to be protected in some fashion like with conduit.
He stated and it was not because it was not that far off the ground.
What is allowed via NEC codes? Thanks
PS is 50 amp code on new construction for range rough in ?
