Question Converting Stove From Gas to Electric

I am trying to sell my gas range because I prefer electric. When we pulled it out from the wall to determine if there was a 220 outlet, we dicovered a thick cord which led into a metal box. Inside the box were two cords each capped off. My husband knows very little about electrical work so he isn't 100% sure that the cord was for an electric hookup prior to purchasing gas stove by previous owners. Is it more than likely this is what this is?

Yes, it is very likely that that is what this is. I think you just might be very lucky. Go to your breaker panel and see if there is a double-pole breaker (2 inches wide) that is labeled for a range. Come back and tell us what number is on the handle of that breaker.

Number on Handle

The number on the handle is 50.

You are indeed lucky. Sounds like you can just have a qualified person hook it up, after double checking to make sure the circuit's capabilities match the range's requirements.
