I have come across 2 new homes that had the outlet for the gas oven on an AFCI circuit. I would think that this would not be a outlet that you would want on a protected circuit. It only powers the controls for the oven. i would think it would be a nuisance to have it trip while you are cooking something and not realize it. Just like I wouldn’t want it on a GFCI circuit.
I have searched the codes and can not find anywhere stating it is not allowed. Any thoughts?
