Question about Kitchen Ranges
Hardwire fridigaire electrolux gallery series stove top. Hooked black and red from branch to black and red from stove top. Neutral side hooked green and white from from stovetop to neutral side. Hooked white from branch to neutral side. Will not heat what did I do wrong?
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?"

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

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...

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.

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:
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.
