You can not, a range has to use 3 wires or 4 wires. To put it in you need to run a 220v plug to where the stove is. Was your previous range a gas range? That is the only range I can think of that ran off a two wire. Anyway, you can add a 220v wire right off the breaker box and run it to your stove. These parts are easily found at a hardware store like Lowes or Home Depot.

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!

Sounds like you are only getting half the power to your stove, first check your breaker for the stove,turn it off and then on again,one side off the breaker may not be making a good connection giving you only 110v instead of 220v which is why you will have lights and no heat. If that does not solve the problem and you are comfortable working with electricity shut off the breaker, unplug the stove and remove rear access panel where the cord goes into the back off the stove and make sure all 3/4 wires are securely connected, that being done and it still does not work you may have a bad breaker or connection in box or a faulty outlet.

test outlet make shure there is 220 volts, display is 110v will work with one side dead, if you have 220v the problem is inside mabey a fuse or relay.

Stove top or oven does not work however, clock

check your 220v outlet, you could have 110v and not the needed 220v to operate the elements. If you only have 110v at the outlet the one side of the double breaker is bad

1 or 2 circuits to create 2 phase?

How to explain this? your new drop in unit will require a 220v circuit capable of a specified amount of amps. Typically 40, 50 or 60. Should be noted in the manual and on the unit itself. If your original oven and cooktop were electric, then each one was probably hooked up to a 220v circuit. The problem is figuring out how many amps were supplied for each. The simplest way is the go to the panel and find the breaker for the old oven and cooktop and read the numbers (or amps) on the on/off switch. If either breaker has a number the same or greater then the drop in unit says it requires, then your all set. If the drop in unit says it requires 52amps and one of the breakers says 60 on it, your fine. If the drop in unit says it requires 44amps and the breakers are 30 or 40, then you got a problem. Usually a breaker is installed that is the maximum amps allowed for the size (thickness) of the wire connected to it. You CANNOT connected a 50a breaker to wire only rated for 40a. Note the size difference of wire connected to a 20a breaker with wire connected to 40a breaker. If the drop in unit requires more amps then the original units used, then a larger wire will need to be ran from the panel to the drop in unit (Not cheap). Now if the original oven used a 30a and the original cooktop used a 30a, then its possible ( 80% of electricians wouldn't do it because of liability problems) to use both wires together to create 60amps, but both wires (actually a total of 6 wires, 2-120v wires and 1 ground wire from each outlet) would need to be in the same outlet box for the drop in unit connection.. I could (and probably should) try to explain more, but I'de probably just confuse you more. GOOD LUCK!

Power, no heat unless oven is set on "simmer" mode.

it sounds like u have a voltage problem, do you have a volt meter? check to see if you are getting 220v at the outlet where your stove plugs in, next check the plug cord and the connections where your cord attaches to the unit, connections good and tight? plug stove back in and check the voltage, unless you have a serious problem burned wires in stove problem should be corrected by now

The oven and controls dont work but the stove is?

usually it is the element that blows or burns out turn off power to range at circuit breaker, open oven and check element for holes, power still turned off!! unscrew element from back of stove wall, this is easier if the oven door is removed, open door to first detente (stays open by itself a few inches in open position) grab door on either side (not by the handle it will break off) and lift upward, check if wire connections are good, if not repair the connection(s), do you have a volt meter, if not borrow one or buy a cheap one and check the voltage at the connections, make contact with the meters probes and isolate them from the oven's walls (use some electrical tape) turn on oven and then turn on power at circuit breaker if 220v is available then the element is bad, if you do not have 220v then the switch is bad or wire feeding the switch is bad

Exposed wires

If the critter chewed through the range cord insulation (from the outlet in the kitchen to the stove) you can get a replacement at most home centers or a well-stocked hardware store. The connections are made to screw terminals under a cover behind the stove. Take the old one along and match it to the new one. Be sure to tighten the screw terminals very securely when you put on the new one. (Obviously, you unplug the stove before doing any work.)

If the critter has chewed through the electric supply line to the stove outlet, call a licensed electrician to replace the damaged portion. You need to have the work done by properly licensed people to keep your insurance company happy, and often to stay legal with local codes as well.

You probably have a week oven igniter. Unplug unit first!!
Remove oven floor. Remove flame spreader. Igniter is attached to side od burner tube. It removes with 2 screws. Remove drawer to access connections. New igniter will come with wire nuts. Cut wires at old igniter, strip back insulation and connect to new igniter. The 2 wires can go either way. Re-assemble and test.
