I had an electric oven delivered. It came with a 40 amp range power cord already attached. The installation manual says it requires a 40 amp cord, but the breaker on the wall is rated at 50 amps.

Is it still ok to use a 40 amp cord with the 50 amp breaker? Thanks!

It will be fine. The range won't draw more current just because it's connected to a larger breaker.
