THE NEC NOW REQUIRES YOU TO INSTALL A 4 PRONG PLUG 10-4-WG WIRE CONNECTED TO A 30 AMP DOUBLE POLE BREAKER THE PIG TAIL ON THE NEW STOVE MUST MATCH THE PLUG SO THE ONE OFF OF THE OLD STOVE WILL NOT WORK GET THE 4 PRONG PLUG AS WELL THE WALL PLUG WILL BE EITHER A FLUSH MOUNT OR A SURFACE MOUNT AS TO SAY IN THE WALL OR ON THE BASEBOARD SURFACE REPLACE WITH THE SAME AS YOU HAD BEFORE IT IS LESS TROUBLE IN THE LONG RUN THIS SHOULD ANSWER ALL THE QUESTIONS THE ELECTRICIAN NEEDS TO KNOW IF NOT LET ME KNOW

How do I install a 220 volt outlet using existing wiring?


I would recommend getting an electrician. If you chose not to any mistakes you make can be a safety hazard and possibly kill somebody.

In this area we are required to use a 4 wire connection; Phase, Phase, Neutral (bare or white in the US), Earth (green in the US). You are missing the Earth connection and will need to run a wire back to your electrical panel and connect to the earth bus. Earth and Neutral are connected together at one point in your home. In older systems the Neutral was used for the earth connection as well, this is dangerous if a fault occurs. The Earth may also be called ground as could the Neutral but they are different even though they are connected connected together at one point in your system. If you have an older electrical system and do not have the appropriate Earth connections I would highly recommend hiring an electrician, electricity can cause fires and kill.

Gas Tappan oven will not power up after power outage


make this test and use the multimeter. God bless you

No power
Make sure there's power getting to your range, oven or cook top. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

Need help wiring unit ,sensors wall control etc. I have limited wiring exp would appreciate help


Is this a gas or electric range? Gas uses 115 Volts & Electric uses 220 Volts.
So, You will have to add a 220V wall outlet for electric stove. This is not an easy job....it really requires an experienced electrician.
If a gas range then you just plug in the power cord...nothing to wire.

Hi there- I have three year old KGRC707 gas range. I am shipping it to east Africa (overseas) that has 220V electric standard. wil it work as it did in the US with or without a transformer? also can you...


I see a few problems with the coversion to 220VAC I will send a set of manuals and a phone number. Here is what the instalation manual says about wiring. If codes permit and a separate ground wire is
used, it is recommended that a qualified electrician
determine that the ground path is adequate.
Check with a qualified electrician if you are not
sure whether the range is properly grounded.
Do not ground to a gas pipe
A 120-volt, 60-Hz, AC-only, 15-ampere, fused
electrical circuit is required. A time-delay fuse or
circuit breaker is recommended. It is recommended
that a separate circuit serving only this range be
provided.
Electronic ignition systems operate within wide
voltage limits, but proper ground and polarity are
necessary. In addition to checking that the outlet
provides 120-volt power and is correctly grounded,
the outlet must be checked by a qualified
electrician to see if it is wired with correct polarity.
The wiring diagram is included in the literature
package. The wiring diagram can also be found on
the back of the range.
NOTE: The metal chassis of the range must be
grounded in order for the control panel to work. If
the metal chassis of the range is not grounded, no
keypads will operate. Check with a qualified
electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the
metal chassis of range is grounded.
I was thinking it would help you to know and not have your question unanswered. Good news or bad. Personally I see no problem stepping down the voltage and making a typical receptical. My views do not change requirements so best I follow those that made the eletrical requirements. Another problem is the cycles or hz. HZ is defined like this 1 Hertz = one time per second ad 60 is 60 per second. In europe and most countries outside the USA operate on 220 V @50 hz. A typical 120 V clock would run slower and a record player also. I think it would be better if you use something designed for the local area you are moving to.

How to remove simpson wall oven with cable


Not if you can access you main electrical panel. You should be able to turn off the 50 Amp Double Pole Breaker that provides power to the wall oven/ Note, sometimes it's a 40 or a 60 amp breaker depending on the age and requirements for the wall oven.

You should be able to turn off the breaker and safely remove the oven and disconnect the wiring connections once you pull the oven out of the opening. Be sure to fully tape each wire once you disconnect them from the oven to prevent an accidents - also, LEAVE THE BREAKER OFF until the new oven has been properly installed!

IF you aren't sure which breaker it is and really want to be ultra safe, you can shut off the main breaker, but you'll be without power until you've got the oven removed and have safely taped each conductor with SEVERAL wraps of electrical tape to prevent contact with the bare conductors.

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

Changing out electical outlet


If this is United States standard wiring, newer homes are REQUIRED to have a 4-wire outlet according to the National Electrical Code. If you own a home with this type outlet configuration, its actually illegal to remove it and convert to the 3-wire configuration. Changing the power cord on the appliance is actually an easier option and less expensive (not to mention, you won't be violating any electrical codes). The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

The main difference is how the Neutral (White) and Ground (Green) wires are installed. In a 4-wire configuration, the neutral and ground are independent of each other. Make sure you remove any grounding straps on the terminal block between the ground and neutral.

NOTE: A replacement power cord can be purchased at any hardware store for $20 or less. The cost to have a Certified Electrician install a new outlet for you (if they would) will easily exceed that.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Range master toledo 90


I would follow these requirements if I were you:

The cooker must be connected to the correct electrical supply as stated on the voltage label on the cooker (This is obvious so far!). It should be connected through a suitable cooker control unit incorporating a double pole switch having a contact separation of at least 3mm in all poles (This means one of those big red switches with "COOKER" written on them). The cooker must NOT be connected to an ordinary domestic power point. The cable size used should be between 6mm squared and 10mm squared twin and earth. Where the installation is protected by a 30 milliamp sensitivity residual current device (RCD Breaker), the combined use of your cooker and other domestic appliances may occasionally cause nuisance tripping. In these instances, the cooker circuit may need to be protected by fitting a 100 milliamp device. This work should be carried out by a qualified electrician.

Range goes into lock out mode


I have experienced this with a Maytag model before. What I was told by the technical assistance folks, is that fluctuations in power coming from the line voltage being fed into the home, electrical storms, or even ham radio (high power RF) operating in the area, can cause some electronics to appear to have problems when they don't. The theory is that these circuit boards are so sensitive that even the slightest noise or interference on the line voltage coming in can cause the board to go into a lock out mode. I was able to clear the problem I had by resetting the computer. There is an actual procedure for this if you haven't figured that out already. If you haven't figured out how to reset the unit, you may need to call the technical support department for your model to see if they can provide you with better answers. I hope this sheds some light on this problem for you.
