I have a house that had a 240v stove in it, and then was replaced with a gas stove, all before I bought it. There are two regular 120v outlets under it, that are both 120v, and the gas stove is plugged into one for the igniter. No 240v.
I want to put an induction stove in, which requires 240v. The last owner said he thinks the 240v outlet that powered the electric stove was just split into two 120v outlets, and I should be able to make a 240v outlet back out of them. Says it was a long time ago and not that sure.
How can I go about finding out if they are indeed on different phases so I would know a 240v outlet can easily be made there, before I go and buy a induction stove?
I have a basic multimeter if that is helpul.
