Question about Ovens
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.
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.
