    jsrock516,

    Thanks that did help alot! after reading your solution I was able to retrieve the parts I clipped and looked at the wires in the wire nut. The balck with red was attached to the red from the old stove, black to black and the white & green to the copper or neutral wire. I hardwired the stove that way with total success!

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.

Oh my! The white and black are normally both HOT wires!!! Bare copper is ALWAYS a ground wire, and also can work as neutral. Neutral is the middle prong on the plug.
Turn off the breaker before even touching your appliance, there might be 110v on the metal parts!!!

Black and white should be on the sides, and bare copper - in the middle.
Before switching the wires make sure that black and white really are the hot wires: there should be 220-240v between them.

Motor for my vulcan convection range was disconnected for moving by previous owner. There are 4 leads on motor, red and 2 black, and only one red lead (marked #1) still has label. The stove leads are still...


Red wires are usually the in and out for the centrifugal switch. the black wire that goes to the panel inside the motor is likely the 120 connection, the panel is the start switch for the start winding of the motor. This black wire should be connected to the 120 (from inside oven) and one of the red wires (three wires together). The other black wire of the motor should be connected to nuetral (you will have to determine which of the wires you have left coming from the oven is nuetral) the other red wire should be connected to the wire that feeds back into the oven for gas valve/thermostat controls (you may be able to trace this wire by hand to see if it goes to thermostat and gas valves). Hope this helps.

Just purchased new electric stove. The old stove had been hard wired. Black, white and copper. The new stove is asking to connect red, white and black. what should i do ?


Normaly black, white, copper (ground) is a 2-wire 110 volt, black white, red, copper is a 3-wire 220volt circuit. You must have a 3-wire cicuit run from circuit breaker box to stove connector.

Oven will not work


Follow these step for inital troubleshooting If your range/oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these:
1. Fuse/circuit breaker Check to see if power is getting to the range/oven. Does anything turn on--even a light? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

2. Main wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the range/oven, gets burned and so breaks the connection. Then you may have to replace the power cord to the range/oven, and the terminal block that the wire is attached to.

3. Range/oven wiring There may be a broken or burned wire at the back of the range/oven. If you repair any of the wires, use only proper appliance-grade wire and wire connectors.

I need a wiring diagram to wire my oven to the house power. Whirlpool electric model# rb260pxyb


You will have 3 or possibly 4 wires coming out of the oven Red and Black go to the hot leads in the junction box.Usually red & black but could be 2 black. White goes to white Bare/green go to the white if no Bare/Green available. This is for a wall oven. If the stove is free standing and you want to attach a cord. Just buy the cord that matches the outlet in your house. Make sure it is a range cord and not a dryer cord. They are very similar. If a 3 conductor cord (most common) outer two terminals are the hot ones. There is a wire or metal strap between the frame of the range and the center (neutral )terminal . On a 3 conductor cord leave this connected. On a 4 conductor cord remove this wire and connect it to the green/bare wire in the cord. There may be a vacant terminal on the block for this purpose. If not use a wire nut.

Convection oven fan continues to run even with door open and there is an electrical odor.


My JBP90 GE Profile convection oven had the same problem. The problem, in my case was caused by the door switch that controls the interior oven light. It also controls the convection fan and possibly the convection heating element.

1. DISCONNECT THE UNIT FROM ITS ELECTRICAL POWER SOURCE!
CONFIRM POWER IS DISCONNECTED BY OBSERVING DISPLAY GOING DARK
In your case this may mean turning off the 220V double circuit breaker or unplugging the unit cord from its power outlet.
2. Open the oven door
3. Remove the two screws under the front edge of the stove cooktop on the far left and right
4. Gently raise the cooktop 4 or 5 inches and prop it open with a small cardboard box
5. Find the door switch wire and gently pull the switch connector off
6. Remove the switch by squeezing the two metal spring tabs toward the switch and pushing the switch out toward the front
7. Inspect the switch. If its like mine, it may look a little melted and smell burnt.
8. Find a new switch online or at your nearest parts distributer

9. Installation is the reverse of above steps.

Good Luck!

Bake Element


There should only be two wires that go to the element. It won't matter which wire goes on which terminal. Turn power off to unit before replacing the element. In some cases when the element burns out and breaks in have it will send a surge back to the oven control board and it will need to be replaced also. You will know once the element is replaced if it doesn't heat up.
