Question about Frigidaire FEF366 Electric Kitchen Range
There are 2 black wires and 1 copper uncoated wire coming from my power panel, but my new convection oven says 1 white, 1 black and 1 red! what do I do?
Okay, the normal color coding for a 220-240VAC receptacle is as follows:
White (Neutral) - 0VAC
Black (HOT) - 110 VAC
Red (HOT) - 110 VAC
I suspect that the two black wires from your power panel are the two hot leads in your case. That is...each one should read 110-120VAC. Verify this my measuring each black lead to ground. The copper wire is probably a ground or neutral. It sounds like this is an older house (?).
The following link will give you some advice as well:
In addtion, the electric service for major appliances like a Range or Dryer should have its OWN dedicated circuit to prevent overloading. I hope you find this information helpful. If you have questions, please let me know.
