I'm getting a new dual fuel range and am figuring out how to connect the electric. It's a Thor brand, model HRD3088ULP.
The oven specifies that it should use a 30 Amp breaker, but also should use a 14-50 NEMA plug/outlet. That sounds to me like a potential problem if someone upgrades to a range that draws closer to 50 A.
Here's the relevant section from the spec sheet:
I have a 10/4 cable already wired near the right place from a 30 A breaker.
Is it common or acceptable to install a 14-50 outlet on a 30 A circuit? Should I ignore their spec and just install 14-30 instead? The range doesn't come with a plug.
The User's Manual is similar, except it doesn't mention anything about a 30A breaker, just that it could need up to 30A.
