Good day! We’re replacing an electric oven/range to a gas oven/range
Adding a 600CFM range hood.
The old range is leaving an ungrounded 8/3 NM for me to work with.
Now, lazy me wants to replace the 220V 40A two-pole breaker with a single pole 120V 40A breaker and convert the 3 blade receptacle to a 20A outlet and use the red wire as a ground.
Besides trying to get 8AWG stranded wire to attach pleasantly to a receptacle, how badly mannered would this setup be?
