Moving a stove

I am moving a stove. 40 AMP. Currently connected with #8 wire. I need to move it about 10 feet. How do I "splice" the existing wire to the new 10 foot section so I can move the receptacle to the new location? How do i know what the maximum length of the wire from stove to panel is? Carl

Are the wires copper or aluminum? Do you have three wires or four?

The splice must be made in a permanently accessible junction box.

If four wires, you can splice or move it. If three, you'll need a new run of four wires.

Also, if this current cable runs through a crawl space, and the new location is closer to the panel, you MIGHT be able to just shorten the cable and run to the new location, instead of splicing the old one.
