Refrigerators don't usually require a minimum of a 220 V circuit. Most ranges do, and of course, the circuit should be dedicated. Make sure you check with an electrician. <><><> No, an electric cooker, uses a lot more power than a fridge!

The breakers on the main panel and the wiring has to be a lot heavier in order to take the much larger load. Most homes have a power point in the kitchen, specifically for cookers. If you haven't, you'll need a qualified electrician to fit one. <><><>

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

Before you do any work yourself,

on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,

always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB

SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY

REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.

If the repairs or remodeling are small such as changing fixtures, flooring, or wall colors, you will not need a permit for remodeling your kitchen or bath if you are living in Chicago or many other places for that matter. However, if the remodeling is more extensive than this it is wise for you to go to your local Building Department and explain your plans because you may need a permit.
