Electrical Requirements - U.s.a. Only - KitchenAid 30" Freestanding Range Installation Instructions Manual

30" (76.2 cm) freestanding and slide-in electric ranges
Hide thumbs


If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrical installer determine that
the ground path is adequate and wire gauge is in accordance
with local codes.
Do not use an extension cord.
Be sure that the electrical connection and wire size are adequate
and in conformance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/
NFPA 70-latest edition and all local codes and ordinances.
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:
National Fire Protection Association
One Batterymarch Park
Quincy, MA 02269
WARNING: Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a
qualified electrician or service technician if you are in doubt as to
whether the appliance is properly grounded. Do not modify the
power supply cord plug. If it will not fit the outlet, have a proper
outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
This range is manufactured with the neutral terminal connected
to the cabinet. Use a 3-wire, UL listed, 40-amp power supply
cord (pigtail); or if local codes do not permit ground through the
neutral, use a 4-wire power supply cord rated at 250 volts,
40 amps and investigated for use with ranges.
Electrical Connection
To properly install your range, you must determine the type of
electrical connection you will be using and follow the instructions
provided for it here.
Range must be connected to the proper electrical voltage
and frequency as specified on the model/serial number rating
plate. The model/serial rating plate is located inside the oven
door on the right-hand side oven door trim. Refer to the
figures in the "Product Dimensions" section of the "Location
Requirements" section.
When a 4-wire or 3-wire, single phase 120/240 volt, 60 Hz,
AC only electrical supply is available, a 50-amp maximum
circuit protection is required. When a 4-wire or 3-wire single
phase 120/208 volt 60 Hz, AC only electrical supply is
available, a 40-amp maximum circuit protection is required,
fused on both sides of the line.
A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended.
The range can be connected directly to the fused disconnect
(or circuit breaker box) through flexible or nonmetallic
sheathed, copper or aluminum cable. See "Electrical
Allow 2 to 3 ft (61.0 cm to 91.4 cm) of slack in the line so that
the range can be moved if servicing is ever necessary.
A UL listed conduit connector must be provided at each end
of the power supply cable (at the range and at the junction
Wire sizes and connections must conform with the rating of
the range (40 amps).
The wiring diagram is located on the underside of the storage
drawer or below the warming drawer in a clear plastic bag.

Electrical Requirements - U.S.A. Only

If connecting to a 4-wire system:
This range is manufactured with the ground connected to the
cabinet. The ground must be revised so the green ground wire of
the 4-wire power supply cord is connected to the cabinet. See
"Electrical Connection."
Grounding through the neutral conductor is prohibited for new
branch-circuit installations (1996 NEC); mobile homes; and
recreational vehicles, or an area where local codes prohibit
grounding through the neutral conductor.
When a 4-wire receptacle of NEMA Type 14-50R is used, a
matching UL listed, 4-wire, 250 volt, 40-amp, range power supply
cord (pigtail) must be used. This cord contains 4 copper
conductors with ring terminals or open-end spade terminals with
upturned ends, terminating in a NEMA Type 14-50R plug on the
supply end.
The fourth (grounding) conductor must be identified by a green or
green/yellow cover and the neutral conductor by a white cover.
Cord should be Type SRD or SRDT with a UL listed strain relief
and be at least 4 ft (1.22 m) long.
4-wire receptacle (14-50R)
The minimum conductor sized for the copper 4-wire power
cord are:
40-amp circuit
2 No.-8 conductors
1 No.-10 white neutral
1 No.-8 green grounding
If connecting to a 3-wire system:
Local codes may permit the use of a UL listed, 3-wire,
250 volt, 40-amp range power supply cord (pigtail). This cord
contains 3 copper conductors with ring terminals or open-end
spade terminals with upturned ends, terminating in a NEMA Type
10-50P plug on the supply end. Connectors on the appliance end
must be provided at the point the power supply cord enters the
appliance. This uses a 3-wire receptacle of NEMA Type 10-50R.
