Induction Cooktop Electrical Connection


  • Why does the Induction Cooktop have 10 ga wire when it requires a 40 amp circuit?
  • If a 40 amp circuit uses 8 ga wire, why do the CT and CI Induction Cooktops use 10 ga wire?
  • Induction cooktop electrical hookup


The whip on an Induction cooktop can be a lighter wire because it is not as long of a run.

  • There is more resistance on a longer run, requiring a heavier wire.
  • The complete appliance must be properly grounded at all times when electrical power is applied.
  • Do not ground appliance with the neutral (white) house supply wire. A separate ground wire must be used.

Refer to the product installation guide for further installation information.
