the original wiring probably had a red, white, black, and green wire. It is 240 volts. The red is hot, carrying one leg of 120 volts. The black is also hot, carrying 120 volts. The white is neutral, and the green is the ground.

I am against altering this, but you can wire the red and black each to a hot leg, and wire the white and green to the bottom ground. This then introduces a ground wire to your neutral bar in the circuit panel, which is not the best way to do it, but will work.

Best to get an electrician to wire a 4 wire cable to a four prong outlet, and then use a four wire pigtail with a 4 pronged plug.

Lots of people modify it, they ground the green wire to the stove, where the wire originates,and to the box with the outlet in it where it hooks onto the plug if it is metal. Then you have a part ground. And that is assuming you have a cable with wires sticking out to wire to a plug.

Boils down to your decision. If the above isn't the case, get a four pronged outlet and wire the red and black to the top two prongs, the white to the neutral, and the green to the metal box it sits in.

Do I need special electrical outlet?


You need to check with a licensed electrician for your area that would know the electrical codes. Most houses will all ready have an outlet for the stove and you will have to match it up with for the cord on your stove. Older homes that have not upgraded the electrical, typically will have a 3 wire outlet for the stove. Most newer homes, where the code requires, may have a 4 wire outlet. If you are replacing an existing stove I would recommend getting a new pigtail cord for the new stove so that you have new wires carrying the current instead of trusting old wires. Hope this helps!

I have a frigidaire m/n PLES389ECD and the burners and oven aren't working and had the error code f20, the clock timer was replaced but now the clock is the only thing working the burners and oven still...


The ESEC system and the electronic oven control ain't communicating. Check the wiring connections between the oven control and the esec controls. The thang is designed to lockout the top burners while the self clean feature is in use. If you failed to reconnect that connection which feeds back to the ESEC I imagine nothing does work. LOL. here's a video which shows how it works and I have the manual loaded on Gdocs fo you.

The digital clock on my Frigidare electric stove is flashing every morning and loses time. Now I told the oven is not staying on.


make sure your power connector is tightly plugged into the outlet- also, check for any signs of possible rodent (no offense!) damage to the wiring! sometimes it's hard to tell if the little devils are lurking about!you may want to unplug the cord and inspect for corrosion. you may want to turn off the breaker for the stove. i assume it's 220 volt. then spray plug with a little WD40. let it dry a bit, and plug it back in, then reset the breaker! if that isn't it, you may have a loose connection, or more inside your stove. in that case, get a pro to check it out!! then do the math- will it cost more to fix it than it will to replace it?? your choice!
good luck!

I have a fridgadare stove that reads code f9.


OK, I will list the Possible causes and the solutions below to combat this issue you are experiencing.


POSSIBLE CAUSES--


1. Door motor failure / jammed. Latch
motor switch failure.
2. Control software failure, or component
failure (relay stuck).
3. Wiring Problem.


SOLUTIONS--


1. Press CLEAR key.

2. If CLEAR key does not eliminate problem, turn off power for 30 seconds, then turn on power.

3. Check wiring of Lock Motor, and Lock Switch A, and Door Switch circuits.

4. Unplug P4, apply power (L1) directly to the Lock Motor, if the motor does not rotate, replace Lock Motor Assembly. Plug P4.

5. Check Lock Switch A for proper operation (do they open and close, check with ohmmeter). The Lock Motor may be powered as in above step to open and close Lock Switch. If the Lock Switch
is defective, replace Motor Lock Assembly.

6. If all above steps fail to correct situation, replace control.
