Hello. I can help you. What you have there at the wall is a circuit with 120 volts of power available. Your Gas oven requires 240 volts of power, thus the additional [red] wire. That said, they do not match up.

You will have to run a 240 volt wire from your electrical panel to rear of your stove opening with the correct circuit breaker in the panel, the correct amperage wire to the stove, the correct receptacle for the stove and the correct plug on the stove.

This is serious electricity here so do not proceed on your own as you could get seriously hurt or worse.

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.

I have white, black and ground out of wall, i have red, black, white and ground from oven, how do i connect


Unfortunately you can't. Your wall outlet is a 110V circuit (B-110V; W- common) and your oven needs 220V circuit to operate. Red - 110V; Black - 110V; White - Common.

You will need to installed a 220V, 30 AMP (10-3/w ground) homerun from your circuit breaker panel to the oven

I have a Magtag wall oven MEW6530DDS model. The panel buttons do not work. I've had the oven about 3 yrs. Do I need to replace the control panel or control board?


The control board. As long as none of the buttons appear to be stuck. Press each button one at a time feeling for the retraction or click. If this checks good replace the control board. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/ovenerc.html

HI. This will be the actual control board in this case, that will be the culprit. the control board, and touch pad, are integrated. These symptoms are indicating that the key pad membrane is damaged. This will require you to replace the entire control board. Once the control is replaced, these issues will be corrected.

Connecting wiring into oven


The house wiring was not up to code so the white wire was not supposed to connect to the white terminal on the stove. Instead the white wire connected to the red, the black to the black and bare ground wire connected to the white terminal thus providing ground and two termianls with 110 each.
