Electrical Requirements - Canada Only - KitchenAid KERS807SBB Installation Instructions Manual

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


This range is manufactured with the neutral terminal
connected to the cabinet. Use a 3-wire UL listed, 40- or 50-
amp power supply cord (pigtail) (see Range Rating chart
below). If local codes do not permit ground through the
neutral, use a 4-wire power supply cord rated at 250 volts,
40 or 50 amps and investigated for use with ranges.
Range Rating*
120/240 Volts
120/208 Volts
8.8 - 16.5 KW
7.8 - 12.5 KW
16.6 - 22.5 KW
12.6 - 18.5 KW
*The NEC calculated load is less than the total connected load
listed on the model/serial rating plate.
**If connecting to a 50-amp circuit, use a 50-amp rated cord with
kit. For 50-amp rated cord kits, use kits that specify use with a
nominal 1 " (34.93 mm) diameter connection opening.
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.
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.

The minimum conductor sized for the copper 4-wire power
cord are:

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- or 50-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.

Electrical Shock Hazard
Electrically ground range.
Failure to do so can result in death, fire, or
electrical shock.
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 are in accordance
with local codes.
Be sure that the electrical connection and wire size are adequate
and in conformance with CSA Standard C22.1, Canadian
Electrical Code, Part 1 - latest edition, and all local codes and
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:
