Convection Steam Oven Electrical Requirements

Topics:

  • Does the Convection Steam Oven (CSO) electrical have to be in a cabinet to the right or left of the unit?
  • Can the CSO electrical outlet be in a cabinet above or below the CSO?
  • Why must the electrical supply be placed in an adjacent cabinet and not directly behind the CSO?
  • Does the CSO use a power cord, or is it hardwired?
  • What type of power cord does the CSO use?

Answer:

The installation requirements changed for the new CSO (touch control) models, and the plug was redesigned to allow the electrical to be place inside the opening. Refer to Convection Steam Oven Installation Guide for more information.

  • The electrical outlet for a CSO (knob control) must be within 3' of the right, left, top, or bottom of the unit cavity opening.
    • CSO (knob control) - Depending on cabinet depth and installation type, the power cord plug may prevent the unit from being installed properly because it cannot be pushed into the cabinet fully.
    • Unless the cabinets are deeper than 24" (standard installation) or 25" (flush inset installation), the electrical supply for the Convection Steam Oven (knob control) must be in an adjacent cabinet within 6' of the unit
    • The electrical supply can be in an adjacent cabinet, as long as it is in a separate opening from the CSO.
  • The plug on the CSO power cord is a 6' NEMA 6-20R grounding-type plug that extends from the electrical outlet approximately 3".
  • The CSO comes with the power cord already installed.
  • Grounded indicates earth ground and no neutral wire required.
  • The electrical supply connects on the lower right-hand side when looking at the back of the unit.
  • Wolf does not suggest hardwiring the Convection Steam Oven.
  • Running the unit on a 208 V electrical supply can lead to performance issues such as longer preheat times.
  • To minimize shock hazard, the power cord must be plugged into a grounding-type receptacle, grounded to conform with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 latest edition, or Canadian Electrical Code (CSA) and all local codes and ordinances. Refer to the illustrations below.
