Should be correct. Maybe it power supply problems.

Have you verify that the line you connected are receiving power on both hot legs ( Red and Black) and that neutral White wire) is actually connected to ground? Use a voltage meter and ohm meter to to do your tests.

Green AND White is normally a ground wire and not a neutral. [At least in the USA and I believe is also the same in Europe. Not sure where you are in the USA or Europe, the colors you give sound more like the USA RED is a 120 leg, and Black is a 120 Leg (Hot Legs) white being the neutral. In Europe Blue is normally neutral with Black and Brown being the Hot legs.

Testimonial: "I am in the US and my terminology is not great. I know the hot side is correct. I hooked the green and white from the stove wiring to neutral side. I hooked the white from the branch to neutral side is this the reason it is not heating?"

    OK if you have a cheap meter, here is what you can do.

  • stixoffire Nov 17, 2014

    1: Check RED to White with a voltmeter set meter on AC Volts tRange 300 VAC or 600 VAC should be 120V.

  • stixoffire Nov 17, 2014

    2: Check Black to White with a voltmeter set meter on AC Volts tRange 300 VAC .or 600 VAC should be 120V.

  • stixoffire Nov 17, 2014

    Check RED and BLACK - should read anywhere from 208 to 230. VAC

  • stixoffire Nov 17, 2014

    If this is an older home the wiring is probably 3 wire, in newer homes you have a 4 wire system. Safety wise you will connect a ground from the home to stove incoming wiring to the stoves ground - most likely connected directly to the frame. That should be your Green/yellow or G/W. The white should go to the white line.

  • stixoffire Nov 17, 2014

    If any of your line voltages are low between RED or BLACK to the white line something is wrong with the house wiring. Also there should not be any voltage Between white and Ground (maybe 1to2Vac MAX is normal) Your house wire might have a simple bare COPPER wire for the ground - this would be the stoves Green/white. Others should be color for color.

  • stixoffire Nov 17, 2014

    Post a pic of the house wires and the stove wires, if you need some more info.

  • stixoffire Nov 17, 2014

    BTW: Homes built in the 90's and later should be 4 wire. RED , BLACK, WHITE, BARE COPPER(or green). If your house has 4 wires connect the stove using 4 wires ..There is a safety reason for this. Wear gloves and sneakers when testing live wires (no rings watches etc..) just incase you get too close to a live wire.

  • stixoffire Nov 17, 2014

    BTW some panels have ganged breakers, and one of the breakers is broke, or the ganging mechanism is broke and allows one breaker to be tripped and the other not tripped. This would show up as very low to no voltage on either the RED [aka L2] or the BLACK [aka L1] line.

SOURCE: GE Easycare Wiring Specs

Not sure what part of the machine component you are referring to but generally the colours mean the following using 240 volts:

Red=Active
Black=Neutral
Green or Green/Yellow=Earth (ground)
White=Switched Active (Become active via a switching component).

I think you should clarify what your attempting to wire up before proceeding.

SOURCE: wiring directions for Kenmore 800 Dryer

Hello mynexthome,
Sounds like you did everything correctly however it is possible the wall receptacle may be miswired. The white wire is the neutral, black and red are the line feeds ( hot ) and green is ground. If you are sure the receptacle is wired correctly and that the power cord is wired as you say it is, then there may be an internal issue with the dryer..or some packing material was not removed and is burning off. ( make sure the drum can spin freely and you aren't smelling a belt burning) The red and black are normally on either side of the neutral but you should match the color code on the terminal block on the dryer. Hope that helps...
Regards,
Rick

SOURCE: Moved dryer, hooked up wrong, not working now after re-hooked up

have you check outlet with a voltmeter or even checked breaker? Is your new rect' a 3 or 4 prong outlet? If you hooked up red's to black and black to reds it still should have worked. The 220 volt heating element is between the red's and blacks the 110 circuits would be between a red or black to white wire.

SOURCE: I need to change the dryer power cord on my Amana

The two wires on either side of the power cord are your HOT leads. They are the voltage carrying conductors. These two wires will connect to the terminal block on the RED and BLACK wires. The middle wire is NEUTRAL and goes to the WHITE wire at the terminal block. Now...with a 3-wire configuration you will need to connect a grounding strap to the neutral wire and ground it to the grounding lug of the appliance. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

The main difference between 3 and 4 wire configuration is how the neutral and ground wires are installed. In a four wire configuration these two are independent of each other. In a 3 wire configuration ground and neutral are connected together.

If you have any questions about this repair, please ask me. I hope this helps you.

There is no blue cable in a 220V, so you have only; white, black, red and ground always green colored wire.

Looking your plug frontal side.
Green Ground on top (semi-circle)

My house wires from the electic stove top has 3 wires and my new bosch electric top has 4 on red, white, green, yellow?


hook the red and yellow off the new stove to the two hot phases-then connect the white on the new unit to the neutral power connection and finally the green wire can hook to the same neutral wire also as long as the power comes directly from the main electrical panel in the home, but not a sub-panel

Frigidaire self cleaning stove mod FEF369cgsb ser vf94422321 was originally wired direct and it shows 4 wires. Now I want to use a plug and outlet, 3 prong. How do you connect the 3 prong plug? thank you...


Vivian
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.
