Question Gas Range requires 120V 15A yet comes with a Nema 14-50 Plug
Model Number: KDRS505XSS01   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a new stove (gas range) that comes with a Nema 14-50 plug. This range should only be using electricity for the igniters and clock. The manual requires:

A 120 volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15-amp fused, electrical circuit is required.

Question 1: It is my understanding a 14-50R should provide 240V at 50A. Please explain why the stove would only call out 120V.

Question 2: Before I run an 8ga drop to a 50A breaker, is there a simpler way to solve this problem using an existing 120V 15A outlet?

Doing some research and I found connectors similar to the following. What can I do to ensure this is sufficient?

NEMA 5-15P to NEMA 14-50R Pigtail Adapter Cord

Alternatively, the cable may have been swapped from an existing three prong connection. Attached is an image of the internals. Would someone confirm this looks like a swap that I can swap back? https://imgur.com/a/GYjZIg1
