Having a larger number of breakers for the kitchen is a good thing.
Modern appliances have a heavier draw , so it wouldn't be unusual.
For instance ; 1 dual breaker for the 220 electric stove
1 breaker for the GFI wall outlets and refrig
which includes garbage disp and
1 breaker for overhead lights
1 20A breaker dedicated to the microwave
If the electrician also ran an additional low amperage light
in the hallway fromthe kitchen lights, , it doesn't mean a thing except
that he knew the wiring
and breaker had the capacity and decided to use it.
However, electricians are notoriously poor record keepers as far
labelling the breakers. By the time they get around to that,
has been done and tested and they want to go have a beer. If you take
the time to do the job yourself, you will never regret it.. A
a nite lite and a walkytalky are very handy. Othewise, use a radio
WAY up..... It takes an hour or so, but worth the trouble. Use labels
you can understand, and DON'T use abbreviations if you can help it.
I'm still trying to find what is controlled by one of my breakers
"WPO" by the electrician. Not a big thing, but tugs at my mind....
