To find out what the wattage of your stove is look at the nameplate or check the specs. from the manual that came with it. Watts = Amps x Volts. Hypothetically your stove should be fed with a 40 amp breaker. The maximum wattage on the stove will be 40 x 240 = 9600 watts. As you can see different manufactures and different models will all be different.

# How do you test an electric stove?

Answer . As a CRI, I routinely test electric stoves. I do this by turning on all burners to high and verifying 1) they all heat up 2) the breaker does not trip 3) the absence of sparks or unusual smoke or odor (slight smoke and odor is normal depending on the cleanliness of the unit).. I test th (MORE)
