It is a new oven , has a load of 3.6 kw , I assume it will need a new supply , I need to know cable size double pole switch required , circuit breaker size ( 20amp,20amp)
Expert:  Michael replied 2 years ago.
Hi,
I will help you there.
Wire size, or gauge, is determined by the National Electrical Code’s AWG wire numbering system. Note that thinner wires with lower capacities have higher numbers, while thick, high-capacity wires have lower numbers. A 220- to 240-volt wall oven with a 40-amp breaker requires an AWG No. 8 gauge wire. The same oven that uses a 50-amp breaker requires a AWG No. 6 gauge wire. Check with the manufacturer or consult the owner’s manual for the recommended wire gauge for your unit.
Usually you will need (2) 30 amp breakers(they are double pole;-)and either in a separate box, or if your existing mains has the room they could go in there.
Please don’t forget to rate my service before closing this page,
then you can always contact me the very same way at no additional cost;-)
Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Ok thanks for that could you also tell me size of breaker required at consumer unit
Expert:  Michael replied 2 years ago.
Hi If your talking phisical size that will depend on the box you want to install it in. But you reapply need (2) breakers, to make it double pole, (2) sources of power to the oven.
You could use (2) 20 amp, or even (2) 30's.
Hope that helps.
