Models rated from 7.3 to 9 kW at 240 volts (5.4 to 7.4 kW at
208 volts) require a separate 40-amp circuit. Models rated at
4.8 kW and below at 240 volts (3.6 kW and below at
208 volts) require a separate 20-amp circuit.
A circuit breaker is recommended.
Connect directly to the circuit breaker box (or fused
