I want to hook up a single 240V stove range to the dryer outlet
using a 10 gauge extension cord. The stove has a black, red and
a copper, all rated at 12 gauge. The dryer uses a 10 gauge wire.
I will be using only 1 burner which is about once a month. The
dryer outlet is a three plug NEMA: 10-30R. The reason why I'm
asking is because if this is not possible then I will have to switch to
propane which is as hazardous. What is the requirement that I
should make to ensure that the stove doesn't do any harm?

ranges require that they be fastened in place. The use of extension
cords to supply such equipment is a violation of
