I spent some time at my breaker box over the weekend, re-routing some basement circuits and fixing some things the previous owner screwed up.
Overall, I was able to "gain" one 20A circuit. This is good, because my kitchen remodel is going to require at least one more circuit. On to the questions:
1. Should the new fridge have it's own circuit, or can it share with something else? It is a fairly standard GE unit with freezer on the bottom (no dispenser, but it does have ice maker)...brand new.
2. Can the new over-the-range microwave share the same circuit as the electric-light cooktop? The cooktop is gas, but will need juice for ignition. I assume this is OK.
3. The current range/oven has a dual 40A breaker, and I think 4/3 wiring (or is that 6/3?). We're replacing that with a double wall-oven. Can I just use this same circuit?
I hope so!
That's it for now.
