If you look at the power cord (or where it plugs in) you will be able to note if it has 3 or 4 prongs (or slots to plug to). Easiest method is to simply take a photo of the plug or the socket and take with you to the appliance store (or where ever you are purchasing the new one from).

SOURCE: 3 wire oven with 2 wire source

Your new oven utilizes 220 volts, but it also has some 110 volt features that need a neutral to work properly. Your old oven was wired without the neutral, probably when the house was built. There are 2 answers to your question. #1, no you should have an isolated neutral or common (same thing) wire, so it should have one. #2, if you connect the white on the new oven to the ground wire it will work. The neutral wires are all connected to the grounds at the breaker panel. Look at it if you don't believe me. The ground is there as a safety to you. if you connect the neutral (the white wire on the new oven to ground) you will be eliminating the safety feature on that appliance. So, I do not recommend you connect the white wire on your new oven to the ground wire out of the wall. But if you do it will work, you will just not have any back up protection if there ever is a problem with the electrical on that appliance. I hope this wasn't too confusing, the answer is you will need to wire the oven properly by adding another wire if you want to be completely safe and within electrical codes.

SOURCE: Jenn-Air Gas Range SEG196 NO CLOCK/DISPLAY

THE ONLY SOLUTION FOR THE BAD DISPLAY IS TO REPLACE THE CLOCK. I HAVE A JENN AIR OVEN TODAY AS A WORK ORDER TO REPLACE THE CLOCK FOR A FAILED DISPLAY.

FOR THE JGW8130DDB WITH NO POWER ANYWHERE, IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A SUPPLY PROBLEM. MAKE SURE THE WIRING IS HOOKED UP WITH THE RED AND WHITE WIRES RECEIVING 240 VOLTS AND THE WHITE WIRE ATTACHED TO NEUTRAL / GROUND.IF THE OVEN HAS A BARE COPPER WIRE AND THE HOUSEHOLD WIRING ONLY HAS THREE WIRES, COMBINE THE WHITE WIRE AND THE COPPER WIRE TOGETHER AND ATTACH TO THE HOUSEHOLD NEUTRAL / GROUND .
UNLESS YOU ARE SURE ABOUT THE HOOKUP IN THE BREAKER/FUSE BOX, DO NOT GO SIMPLY BY THE COLOR OF THE WIRES.

What size circuit breaker for rbs305pr oven?


If you're connected to a 240V source, a two-pole 40 amp circuit is required. If connected to a 208V source, a two pole 30 amp circuit is required.

But the limiting factor here will be the wire size. If installed with #10 copper wire, 30 amp will be maximum. If a #8 copper (or #6 aluminum) 40 amp is maximum. See the link below for details.

Tip

Oven Cord and Wiring Oven for 3 Wire or 4 Wire


If you have an Electric Oven, Range, or Cooktop and need to change the style of cord that you have on the appliance or if you just need to install a cord on a new cooking appliance, you may have questions about where the wires need to go. This tip will help you to figure these questions out.

Remember to ALWAYS make sure that all power is disconnected BEFORE beginning your work!!

On the back, underneath, or on the side, of your range or oven will be a cover plate that will have the wiring connection lugs behind it. A screw or two will need to be removed to expose the connection point. Always remember to reinstall the cover after you have finished your connections.

If you have a 3 wire cord the plug will look something like this.

You will have a red wire, a white wire, and a black wire, on the other end from the plug.
The black and red wires will go on the two ends to the matching colors. The white wire will go in the center. If you have a bonding strap make sure that you jumper that from the center lug to the frame of the dryer. If you do not have a bonding strap, then make sure to make one out of #10 ga. or larger wire and a couple of crimp rings. Green wire is preferable.

The connection will look something like this.

If you have a four wire cord the plug will look like this

0acee70.jpg


Here again, you will have the red, white, and black wires. This cord will also have a green wire. This wire gets connected directly to the frame of the appliance. With this cord, you do not need the bonding strap or wire. If you are converting from a 3 wire to a 4 wire then remove the old bonding strap if there is one there.

This connection will look something like this.

26f7659.jpg

When converting from a 3 wire to a 4 wire you just REMOVE the bonding strap or wire and hook the green wire to the frame. If you are converting from a 4 wire to a 3 wire then you ADD the bonding strap or wire. It gets hooked from the center lug to the frame.

Always make sure that the outlet that you are plugging into is wired correctly also. The black and red are each 110 volt legs that have a voltage of 220 volts across them. The black and the red wires need to be wired to a double pole circuit breaker of the required amperage. The wiring needs to be large enough to support the breaker size that you use and the requirements of the appliance. For 30 amps. use 10 ga. wire, for 40 amps use 8 ga. wire and for 50 amps. use 6 ga. wire. The white or neutral wire goes to the neutral bar in the power panel and the green wire goes to the ground bar in the power panel.

By following this tip you should be able to hookup a new appliance or convert your existing appliance cord. Recheck all your connections before turning the power back on to the appliance.

Model ww2460B double oven. need thermostat 71001138. can I get it anywhere?


Good luck with that!!! I had the same problem and scoured the internet for a solution. If you can find a used or rebuilt part you may be in luck. The thermostat on the left is a 6 pole one for the upper oven while the one on the right is a 4 pole for the lower oven 71001126. I doubt you can substitute the one for the other and give up the convection and self cleaning functions. Let us know if you find a solution or buy a new stove. Sears has a few 24 inch double ovens left, as the world is moving to 27 and 30 inch ovens.

I just bought a maytag 24 inch double oven.it is 240 volt and i need to know if i need to put a 3 wire or 4 wire for the power


Which plug you use depends more on the outlet in your house than the oven usually. If This is a new oven with digital controls, 4 is preferable (I've seen a digital dryer blow the boards because a 3-wire lost it's ground) but if the outlet is 3, you don't have much choice but to go with 3 unless you rewire the outlet back to the fuse/breaker box. As long as it's in good condition, 3 should work fine.

My newly installed Frigidaire wall oven, model FGEW3065KF fails to heat up except for the convection element. Broiler element makes no heat at all and bake element is uncertain because it is hidden. Before...


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.

Stove working, broiler working, oven NOT working .. explain pls.


Assumption: This is an electric oven(?).

You seem to be saying that the bottom heating element in the oven is not coming on.

This can be caused by three possible failures: 1. Thermostat (this is the dial you turn to set the temperature); 2. Selector dial (this is the dial you turn to select the mode (broil, cook, etc); 3. the heating element has failed.

My guess is that the heating element has failed (usually the culprit). It is easy to remove.
1. Unplug all power.
2. Unscrew screws at back holding heating element in.
3. Pull heating element out (it may may electrical connection with a jack built into the wall of the oven cabinet or it may have wires you have to disconnect).
4. If you know how to use an ohmmeter, check the element for continuity. It should have some resistance but not MegaOhms.
5. If you don't know how to check, take it to the parts store and let the counter guy check it for you OR just buy a new one and try it out.

If this was helpful, please select YES to the first two RATINGS questions. Good Luck!
