Change from cooktop to range

Turns out the existing connection for the old cooktop was a dedicated 40amp and the new range requires the same.  I had the electrican move it a bit to meet the specs of the range and I am good to go!  Thanks.

Check the Amperage of the breaker/fuses, most freestanding ranges nowadays will use a 40 amp circut. There are some cooktops that only used a 30 Amp circut. Most of the breaker boxs can have the breaker changed out, fuse boxes are trickier, some are only rated for 1 size 30,40,50 etc. Should have ratings stamped in them somewhere. Any questions or not sure, PLEASE PLEASE consult a licenses electrician.

My wife and I doing some kitchen remodeling and to maximize space we are consolidation a wall oven/micro combo and separate cooktop to a freestanding range in the old cooktop location. 

My question is, should the electrical connection that is being used for the cooktop be suffiicient for the range?  It has a dedicated juntion box in the wall behind the cabinet where the cooktop is located, and I am hoping I can wire the new range into that circuit when I install it.

THanks in advance,
