I am wiring a double electric oven that is equipped with 10 guage wire factory installed. The spec plate indicates it is rated at 7800 watts. Can I use 10 guage wire to run 240 v wiring to the electrical box. My electrical book says I need to use 8 guage – isn’t that overkill since the stove only has 10 guage?
