How to hardwire a 3 wire wall to a 4 wire oven

Simply put, it won't work. New oven=white is neutral, black and red are power but not on the same "leg", and green is ground. If you use a meter, black and red should give you 208-230 or so volts. Wires from wall=White is neutral, blank is voltage (probably 120 or so volts) and bare copper is ground. The dual voltage plug can be used for either 125 or 250 volts, not both as required by the new oven. Need an new circuit pulled and wire/breaker matched to new oven power requirements.

Only have two wires to connect to

What timer are you installing?

Intermatic battery-operated timer with red, blue, black and green
Green connects to bare ground
Red is capped off.
Blue connects to one wire
Black connects to other wire
Push on-off button: if light comes on, timer wiring is correct.
If light does not come on, then reverse blue and black wires.

Other in-wall timers except Aube have red, black, white and green
Green goes to bare ground
Red connects to one wire
Black connects to other wire.
White: in back of electrical box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect white white to these other white wires.
If box does not have white wires described above, then connect white wire to bare ground along with green wire.
Push on-off or override switch: if light comes on, timer wiring is correct.
If light does not come on, then reverse red and black wires.

It has a white wire,red wire,and bare wire but I on have 2 black wires and one bare wire for ground that comes out the wall.I don't know what hooks up with what

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

What is the model number so I can look up the installation procedures for THIS oven?

Usually for a 3 wire connection it will be connected as follows:
1 WALL black to the left terminal block terminal
The bare copper wire to the center terminal of the terminal block
2nd WALL black to the right terminal of the terminal block

See this picture link:

If you notice in the picture it shows a black red and white connection.

Red = black for your connetion 115VAC
White = bare wire neutral Ground
Black = 2nd black for your connection 115 VAC

When the power is connected properly and using the house wires as a reference if you are
reading it with a meter you would read EITHER black wire to the bare wire = 115 - 120VAC
Reading Black to Black = 230 - 240 VAC

If you still have questions feel free to respond here and I will gladly help you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Am replacing an old wall timer with a GE Smart Digital Timer. The old timer had two black wires connected to two black wires from the wall. The new timer however has red, black, white and green wires. I...

I've tested these timers.
Here's what to do:
1) Connect green to bare copper
2) Switch has 2 wires. For now, connect these two wires to timer-black and timer-red. Choose either one.
3) In back of wall box are white neutral wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Timer-white wire connects to these white neutral wires. This action gives power to time clock.
4) If wall box does not have white neutrals described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground wire. Bare ground connects to neutral busbar in breaker box.
5) Turn on power and click manual override button or switch. If lights turn on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not turn on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

depending on your local electrical code:and I see that the unit is 240 Volts A.C., then RED=Power/Black=POWER(L1 & L2)/WHITE="N"Neutral/and GREEN=SAFETY GROUND,on the new unit, then use from the wall power BLACK = L1 and White= L2. then on the unit RED=L1 and BLACK=L2(either way you hook these 2 up there isn't a polarity issue on these 2 wires) on the units hook-up/then use the BARE supply wire as neutral and tie BOTH WHITE and GREEN from the unit together to this BARE wire

Help with wiring for a drop in stove top

This is not to code. The white is neutral and is of the same polarity as a bare wire. The red and the black are considered hot and would be 220.

I need a wiring diagram to wire my oven to the house power. Whirlpool electric model# rb260pxyb

You will have 3 or possibly 4 wires coming out of the oven Red and Black go to the hot leads in the junction box.Usually red & black but could be 2 black. White goes to white Bare/green go to the white if no Bare/Green available. This is for a wall oven. If the stove is free standing and you want to attach a cord. Just buy the cord that matches the outlet in your house. Make sure it is a range cord and not a dryer cord. They are very similar. If a 3 conductor cord (most common) outer two terminals are the hot ones. There is a wire or metal strap between the frame of the range and the center (neutral )terminal . On a 3 conductor cord leave this connected. On a 4 conductor cord remove this wire and connect it to the green/bare wire in the cord. There may be a vacant terminal on the block for this purpose. If not use a wire nut.
