Sounds as if you need an electrician, the red is a "hot" lead and if not at the wall id say you have the wrong power supply at location

How to hook up electrical? 220v single phase? What color wires on which connections of the plug?


Identify the prongs. If you have wired a 110-volt fixture or plug, then you are aware that the different prongs connect to different colors of wires. The same principle holds true for 220-volt plugs, and this is very important to keep from tripping the circuit breaker. A three-prong plug will connect to two colored wires that each supply 110 volts and a bare copper wire which is the ground. One of these colored wires will be black, while the other one should be red, white, or blue. The four-prong plugs connect to a black and a red wire that each supply 110 volts, a white neutral wire, and a bare copper ground wire.

What is the ground & neutral wire for a JPK15 GE Oven?


Assuming this is in the USA there are 3 wires normally in a 240 volt circuit. A black, red and white. Sometimes there is a bare ground wire. The white wire and bare ground wire are basically the same.They connect to the same place in the electrical box. The red and black are your power wires. They would connect top the outside connectors and the white and bare wire (if supplied) would connect to the center connector.

I removed an old wall oven, and the wires coming out of the wall are black, red, pink, and ground. the new oven has black, red, WHITE , and ground. Does pink go to white?


It should go to white. but to double check you should use meter to check if you have 110 Volts between the pink and the Black and 110 Volts between the pink and the red. and 220 between Black and Red

I have white, black and ground out of wall, i have red, black, white and ground from oven, how do i connect


Unfortunately you can't. Your wall outlet is a 110V circuit (B-110V; W- common) and your oven needs 220V circuit to operate. Red - 110V; Black - 110V; White - Common.

You will need to installed a 220V, 30 AMP (10-3/w ground) homerun from your circuit breaker panel to the oven

I doubt there is a fuse on the pigtail, it sounds like your black wire is grounded somewhere. Check black to red, if you get 120 or close to it, your black is shorted to ground.

It has a white wire,red wire,and bare wire but I on have 2 black wires and one bare wire for ground that comes out the wall.I don't know what hooks up with what


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

What is the model number so I can look up the installation procedures for THIS oven?

Usually for a 3 wire connection it will be connected as follows:
1 WALL black to the left terminal block terminal
The bare copper wire to the center terminal of the terminal block
2nd WALL black to the right terminal of the terminal block

See this picture link:
http://www.ask-the-electrician.com/images/RANGE%203-WIRE_CORD_CONNECTION_250.JPG

If you notice in the picture it shows a black red and white connection.

Red = black for your connetion 115VAC
White = bare wire neutral Ground
Black = 2nd black for your connection 115 VAC

When the power is connected properly and using the house wires as a reference if you are
reading it with a meter you would read EITHER black wire to the bare wire = 115 - 120VAC
Reading Black to Black = 230 - 240 VAC

If you still have questions feel free to respond here and I will gladly help you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.
