I have a new cook top, model FGEC3067MB, there is no white neutral wire, the manual calls for a 40 amp circuit. The grouchy old electrician put in a new wire for me. He installed 10-3. I assume that 10 gauge wire is for 30 amps. He told me that the wires from the cook top are too small for 8 gauge wires and that they wouldn't hook up to the cook top. Does that sound right?
The manual also says that the armored leads for the wires are UL rated for higher temperatures and can be wired to larger household wire. Does that sound right? Can I use the 10 gauge wire or do I need 8 gauge wire? I have a manual that tells me 8 and an electrician that tells me 10.
