You may need to get a wire connector to install on the ground (earth) wire, so it can be connected to the terminal connection point on the new oven.

If one wasn't provided with the oven, some do this as a service, just look at the ground terminal or in the bag with the instructions, etc. for one. If not, you should be able to purchase one, you'll just need to get one that fits the wire, so knowing the gauge of the wire (either Awg or Kcmil size) will make this easier to get the right connector size.

I recommend that a ring terminal be used, so in the event that the fastening screw might loosen, the ring terminal will not fall off the contact point, whereas a fork terminal could and can come off much more easily.

Not having more detailed info about the brand and where you're located, makes further possible solutions difficult to provide, since Fixya doesn't require requestors to provide any info on what country they're in, etc.

Nonetheless, I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Hi.
Live goes to live as normal earth to earth as normal, and the neutral is probably a comonj terminal, in other words it probably has a lnk joining the 2 neutrals together.

Hello Ian,

You can put the live and neutral on either of the outer terminals terminal. It really doesn't matter. It's the same principle as not needing to screw in a bayonet light bulb a certain way round. As long as the circuit is complete, it will work correctly.

To put it in the simplest terms, attach the earth wire to the shorter centre terminal with the live and neutral wires on the two outer terminals and job's a good 'un.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Regards,

Live wire connection has 3 connectors for 3 phase. Do I put in all there bridges when connecting to single phase


Your question is not mate. What do you exactly want to do? If I understand that you have a single phase apparatus you wanted to connect it from a three phase box. If that is the case, then you have three options:
1. If the wires are new colour coded ones then you have to take your neutral wire from the blue wire and the live from any of the other three.
2- for old colour codes , take the neutral from the black wire and the live from any of the other three.
3- finally. Connect the neutral from the black or blue and the live from any of the other three red ones if the wires are in a conduit or trunking. I hope this answers your questions. Good luck

My terim cooker has 3 wires - black, blue and brown. Do you know which is live, negative and earth?


green or green and yellow is the ground (earth), blue is neutral, black and brown are both lives. this is the standard european wire color code since 2004. If it is older than that, black was used as a neutral, and blue as a live. very confusing.

We are having a neff oven U15M62NOGB fitted. The wires in the booklet are earth on the left, live in the middle and neutral on the right. Is this correct as the neutral and live are the other way round on...


Yes, the installation instructions are correct. The wiring from your old oven isn't relevant.

Your query is a little confusing though. The new oven should have a power cable attached to it for connection to the mains supply. This should be on a separate circuit from your sockets and connected to an isolator switch. The wires in the power cable are colour coded to ensure that they are correctly polarised when connecting to the mains supply. I'm assuming you're in the UK as you list a GB model number, therefore, it should have a BROWN wire for LIVE, BLUE for NEUTRAL and GREEN/YELLOW for EARTH.

If your house wiring uses the old red (live) and black (neutral) colour coding, then you just need to ensure that the brown (live) wire from the oven lead is connected where the red wire from the supply is terminated. The blue (neutral) wire should be connected where the black wire is terminated and the green/yellow (earth) wire should be connected where the green wire is terminated.

Internally, the oven probably uses red cable for live and black for neutal, but you really shouldn't need to be doing anything with the internal wiring to install the oven.

You say you are having it fitted. Any competent installer would know (or check) the correct wiring order even if the instructions were missing. If you are installing it yourself, be sure are certain you understand what to do before attempting this and double-check the power for the oven circuit is off before you start.

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.

1. The screws seem to need a small hex screwdriver, but I managed to get my normal electrical screwdriver to fit - they are not too tight.
2. The wiring is straightforward - there is an earth position with no wire from the oven attached, marked with the standard earth sign, that should connect to your yellow/green wire. The other two connectors have either a blue (neutral) or a brown (live) wire attached to them - they should connect to your black (neutral in old money) or red (live) wires
