Admiral Clean-O-Matic oven: Power cord black red white ground?

I have an old Admiral Clean-O-Matic oven. I'm trying to connect a 4 color power cord to it. The cord has black, red, white and bare (ground?) wires.
The connections on the oven have 3 terminals with 2 screws each. The 1st one has 2 black wires connected to it. The 2nd has 2 white wires connected to it. The 3rd has nothing connected to it. There is also another 2 black wires that are with a wire nut on them. I know from Google searches that the black and red are hot, the white is neutral, and the bare is ground. I tried connecting the black and red to the 1st terminal, the white to the 2nd, and the bare to the back plate of the oven. This flipped the breaker so how do I connect this power cord. It has been connected to this oven before but was removed by someone to use on another oven temporarily, but I have no way of contacting that person.

    Thanks for your reply. Before I try this, I have taken a few pics. Also I was mistaken. There is only one black wire connected to the 1st terminal. After viewing these pics, does your suggestion still stand?

Your terminal block has been by-passed .
Hook your black cord wire to the black screw on the terminal block.
Hook your white wire to the white screw on the terminal block. Hook the bare ground to the exterior ground screw.
The 2 wires that are wire-nutted together will have to hook to the red wire on the cord.(they originally went to the third connection on the terminal).
You will probably have to cut and strip the red cord wire and attach it with the 2 wire-nutted connections.

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.

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

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.

Thermador c272ub double oven is it single fase wireing


yes,the black and red era the 2 wires that supply 120 volts each for the required 240 volts necessary to operate the oven,the white is the neutral wire and the green is the case ground wire,and it should be connected to any metallic part on the oven not with the white wire,only if the power supplying this oven comes directly from the main power panel in the house and isn't off a sub panel before the oven can this be considered ok to be connected together

I have had a P-44 oven in an Auntie Anne's Pretzels shop for 15 years. It has been connected to a 4-wire, double-breaker circuit. I ordered a new P-44 through Auntie Anne's and thought it would be...


hi...since the specification of your new oven is 208v 1-phase and since voltage rating on your receptacle or outlet s only 120v..it would be advisable for you to purchase an INVERTER, it is a step-up transformer that converts 120v to 220 v..in that way you can supply your oven according to its specification..thanks..

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.
