All of the gas cooktop manuals I have read “recommend” (not require) a dedicated 120V circuit for the ignitors. But they cover their bases by also saying to meet your local code…
So technically, a kitchen small appliance circuit is not allowed to power a built in appliance since those circuits have limits in the NEC right?
I see many gas cooktops on dedicated circuits (or at least they are not on a GFCI circuit) in mecklenburg county but still see some that are on the protected side of one of the kitchen GFCI circuits.
How many check for this and report it as a defect if tripping the GFCI kills the cook top ignitors?
