What size wire and connector is required for installing a hookup for an electric stove? Are all stove connectors (pigtails) the same? What size 220 breaker should I use?
This is brand new installation.

Any help would be most appreciated. Post message here or respond by email to: TKrzemecki@ameritech.net

First, pick out the range. The specs will answer these questions. But normally, you'd use a 50-amp breaker and 6-gauge wire with three insulated conductors and a ground. But pick out the range first -- there may be some special considerations with the one you pick.
