    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.

Your copper, green wire are the ground. I beleave that the white is the power, and the black is your neg. to make sure i would use a wire tester to determen the power. From there white goes to white, black to black, and green to copper. I am not sure on the white/black wire it maybe another power. Look at your instalation manual it should tell you.
Hope this can help.

I think I can help you but i am a bit confused with the panel box and the junction box. If you want to reply explain the circuit in a bit more detail from the switchboard where the fuse is to the back of the oven. It would also be a good idea to have a voltmeter or test lamps handy. Does the double pole breaker do the Active and Neutral or is it 2 phases going through the breaker. Did the wiring used to be for a full range and now there is only the new oven in its place.

I have an electric stove that has 1 black, 1 red


Since 1996, the NEC has required that all stoves and dryers be wired with a 4 wire configuration; 2 hot wires (red/black - supplies 240 volts), the bare green ground wire and a white neutral wire. Before you do anything, review this article which speaks to the 3-wire/4-wire arrangement. Good luck!

I have a jenn-air wall oven it has a red wire a black wire a white wire and a copper wire but coming out of my wall is only a red/black and copper what dose the white wire go to please help thank you


IF you nhave a 3 wire feed fronm the house for your range, you connect the red and black for the power and then use the copper wire from the wall to connect to the white and copper wires from the range. All new construction must have a 4 wire feed to a range and dryer.

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.

the unit is 240 volts not 120 volts/its ok to have the wht and green tied together so long as it comes directly from the house main panel/new law in some places require them to be separate/wht=Neutral/Green=safety grd to case...now how many watts does this unit draw? 2/12 wires sound awful small for the input current/sounds like you need to upgrade to atleast 2#6 wires for power/1#8 for neutral and atleast a #10 for safety ground

How do i wire a newworld es50s in. I`ve been having problems i`ve conected all wires and only had 2 of the hobs working


if its 240volt and you have a 3 wire receptacle, (crows foot) and the new stove has 4 wires:i.e. a RED-BLACK-WHITE-GREEN on the oven unit, your red/black are your 2 hot wires white goes to neutral, and Green is safety ground put the WHITE and GREEN together, as long as the receptacle comes DIRECTLY from the Main Panel in the House, they use a 4 wire systen in some locations depending on local codes/any new installs require a 4 wire plug install now per the N.E.C.

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.
