Adding Circuits

Page 2 of 2  


As others said:
It's probably _not_ worth adding breakers if you're not actually tripping them. the 1.5A/outlet is sort of a rule-of-thumb for how many outlets to have on a circuit and gets enforced for "new work", but there's no particular need to split 'em up in "old work". Unless you're tripping them.

As others said:
If you have the room for more breakers, no reason to remove the stove breaker.
_Further_, in some locales removing an existing stove circuit may be code illegal. In _most_ locales it can be a resale problem if the prospective home buyer prefers electric.
So, if you don't _have_ to pull it, don't.

Why do you want to change something that working to begin with?
Why did no one ask where these wires are coming from to put in the "new" breakers. Can't use stove wires, they terminate there. Are you running new circuits to split out some outlets, didn't say that... there's $$$
