Re: stove

Go to page 8 here:

Essentially, you need a 220 volt hookup kit from any hardware store. Match the plug to your outlet. Several styles are out there. There are three wires in the cable. Knock out one of the holes in the box on the oven. Install a strain relief for the cord into the hole and clamp on the cord. Generally, they're in the kit. The Red and Black wires are 'hot' and white is neutral. The connections are labeled on the stove. Make sure your connections are neat and tight.

Smoke is coming from between oven and microwave especially when it's on self clean very foul oder

Very likely you are cooking some thing vegetable or animal that has been left over inside the stove. If you wanted to keep it, you might try to take it outside and let it burn off, this might take weeks. If you wanted to take it all apart, you might find the problem, although you might wish you had not.
God bless your efforts.

No stove wires hooked up to neutral

The older electric hookups for ranges used only the 2 hot wires and a ground. Somewhere on the range the neutral and the ground should be connected together. This connection is no longer accepted by the National Electrical Code, but no one is going to force you to change the wiring unless you change the range.
Where is the ground wire attached? Some ranges had a metal jumper to connect the neutral to the ground. Your oven element is 240 volt only. It does not need a neutral. The ground/neutral wire is for some of the controls and the clock.

Do I need special electrical outlet?

You need to check with a licensed electrician for your area that would know the electrical codes. Most houses will all ready have an outlet for the stove and you will have to match it up with for the cord on your stove. Older homes that have not upgraded the electrical, typically will have a 3 wire outlet for the stove. Most newer homes, where the code requires, may have a 4 wire outlet. If you are replacing an existing stove I would recommend getting a new pigtail cord for the new stove so that you have new wires carrying the current instead of trusting old wires. Hope this helps!

Yes I just bought a new stove today and the electronic display is not working. It is a frigidaire lgef3045kf

I an assuming that the unit was hooked up correctly, because if you missed a wire or a wire slipped out the the wire nut, this could happen. I would suggest to 1 double check the breaker and make sure it was turned on. If it was, then you will have to recheck the installation of the wiring to the oven. Yes it is possible to get a DOA unit, but is very rare. I hope this helps.

The door on my Okeefe and Merritt antique stove will not close snugly against the frame. There is a slight gap at the top of the door. I have been told that the spring inside the stove needs to be...

O'Keefe and Merritt is always a challenge to the inexperienced because, although two stoves of the same year and model can look identical, there are subtle differences in both, especially in the door spring mechanism, that make it difficult to explain without seeing the stove and/or asking you a series of questions in person. Here it goes anyway: Some models have access panels that are visible when you pull out the broiler drawer. This makes changing a spring a breeze, as long as you know which spring you need. A sample of a broken one, or and intact one always helps when buying a replacement. Other models operate on a system of hooks, cables and springs. These often require a skilled technician to come out and repar for you. Most of the time, the door has to be physically removed from the frame so that new cables (and sometimes rods) can be installed on the hinge and then the door would have to be re-installed fishing the cables through a small opening on the bottom of the stove. A spring then attaches to the cable and the hook of the spring is then attached to one of three small aligned holes on the bottom stove panel.
One constant i s that there are 2 sets of springs for each of the door panels. You are right, there are springs in the middle. And you are also right that the white panel removes from the door after you remove the truss head sheet metal screws.
You might want to give me a call and chat about this further at RMR Company, Inc (RMR Stove Company) 619-231-2808

Admiral Clean-O-Matic oven: Power cord black red white ground?

Your terminal block has been by-passed .
Hook your black cord wire to the black screw on the terminal block.
Hook your white wire to the white screw on the terminal block. Hook the bare ground to the exterior ground screw.
The 2 wires that are wire-nutted together will have to hook to the red wire on the cord.(they originally went to the third connection on the terminal).
You will probably have to cut and strip the red cord wire and attach it with the 2 wire-nutted connections.

Electric stove

Could you be more specific? You mean (I assume) you bought a stove and can't connect it to the wall?  That would be because they don't come with a cord.  You buy it separately... I work in a Home depot.. we carry them.
