HOOKING UP STOVE TO POWER OUTLET IN HOUSE....

I JUST GOT THIS STOVE AS A HAND ME DOWN FROM MY FATHER. HE SAYS IT WORKS FINE AND APPEARS TO BE IN GOOD WORKING CONDITION. BUT WHAT I NOTICE IS THAT IT DOEST HAVE A POWER SUPPLY PLUG ON IT LIKE MOST STOVES. I DONT SEE WHERE ONE WOULD BE LOCATED EITHER. I DID NOTICE IN THE BACK OF THE STOVE, RIGHT AT THE TOP IN THE MIDDLE, WHERE 4 OR 5 WIRES WITH CONNECTORS TO THEM OR SOMETHING. AM I SUPPOSE TO CONNECT STOVE TO POWER WITH THOSE? IS SOMETHING MISSING? ARE THE WIRE ALREADY SUPPOSE TO BE A CERTAIN WAY IN A HOUSE TO CONNECT THIS TYPE OF STOVE? HELP PLEASE. THANKS C. KING

Go to Home Depot/Lowe's. Buy you a STOVE power cord. Hook red to red, white to white, etc.

You need to take the back of.down the bottom should be power terminals.positive ,earth and negative,earth is green,negative is black or blue.the earth is to be puy on thee screw.if you undo a screw then the wires will clamp in when screwed back.a stove should be hard wired to the house if you use a power leadto a power point you can not use all of the stoves functions ,it will trip the fuses

220 stove has nothing hooked up to the neutral


TURN OFF POWER TO THE STOVE OR UNPLUG IT IMMEDIATELY BEFORE TOUCHING **ANYTHING**. I need the make/model of your unit to help you accurately. HOWEVER, the first thing you need to do is(and this applies if I'm interpreting you correctly)replace the power cord--it will be connected to the terminal block--on the vast majority of ovens, you have a left-hand terminal, generally known as L1(a power wire), a center terminal(*normally* the neutral connection), and then the right-hand terminal, generally known as L2(2nd hot supply wire). Take a picture of the AC outlet so you can purchase the correct power cable for your stove. Also, take a picture of the terminal block in the rear of the stove just to make sure. I'm assuming that the wires are all connected in the stove but the neutral wire is either broken or missing from the power cord. Due to how most ovens operate, THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS CONDITION. When the unit is plugged in, even though the oven is off, there is still 120v applied to the heating elements. When you turn on the oven, instead of being connected to a ground, the other side of the heating elements are simply connected to 120v from the other side of the panel, adding up to 240v and the elements heat up. I hope this helps you!

Electrical power is off on my Hotpoint 183D6027G069, even though power is on for all other appliances and all circuit breakers checked normal.


I'm guessing this is a gas / propane stove - so the power is likely 120v if in N. America. If this is the case, I would unplug the stove and plug it into another outlet. If none is close enough, you should be able to run an extension cord to determine if it is an outlet or stove problem.

The 120v is needed on gas stoves mostly for lights, electronics, clock, ignitors, etc. It is not for heating / cook of foods so a decent cord should be fine to use. If it still refuses to function on a known to be good outlet, the power outage you had has caused a problem in the stove and will likely require service.

if the stove works fine until something else is turned on,it sounds like you have an electrical problem with the house.run a seperate line for the stove from the breaker box,it sounds like you have to many things running off of that one circuit

Power, no heat unless oven is set on "simmer" mode.


it sounds like u have a voltage problem, do you have a volt meter? check to see if you are getting 220v at the outlet where your stove plugs in, next check the plug cord and the connections where your cord attaches to the unit, connections good and tight? plug stove back in and check the voltage, unless you have a serious problem burned wires in stove problem should be corrected by now

Open the backguard on the range to access the electronic control. If you read 120 volts into the control and nothing works,...replace the control.

Gas stove stopped working


Hi . I would begin by pulling the stove out and making sure it is plugged in. If it is, unplug it and plug something else into the plug like a blow dryer to make sure you have power to that outlet. If there is no power, you have either blown a fuse or kicked a circuit breaker. Go to your electrical panel to replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. good luck.

Check your stove breakers first. Click them off, leave them off for a minute and put the breaker back on. It sounds like you are having a power supply problem. Make sure to check your potlet and power chord as well.

It appear that Bosch stoves are sensitive to the orientation of the hot and neutral. Mine was reversed at the outlet. I changed it to be correct and it fixed the problem
