How do I connect the 3 phase / 4pin wires to the back of my defy compact stove?

Just bought a Defy Compact, didn't realise it doesn't come with a cord. Got the chord, read the back of the stove, and got this far:
I'm guessing the 3 red wires go into L1 L2 and L3. However I'm not sure (and I don't wanna blowup anything) if the BLACK wire is the neutral, or if the GREEN/YELLOW wire is. Also, there's no mention of a 5th wire and where it should go.... Here's a photo of where I'm currently at (see the instructions on the back) I know it says get a qualified electrician but forgive me for not wanting to spend R500 bucks for someone to stick 5 wires into a stove....
Any help would be appreciated..
So above I have th three red wires going into L1, L2 and L3.
Not sure if the Black wire must go into the "N" connection or if it must go into the yellow/green connection ....

So logic says to me, I have a green & yellow wire, it show go on the yellow & green connection, that makes the black wire neutral which must go into the "N" connection ....

On the right side it says don't connect a leakage thingie... is the green and yellow wire a leakage one? aaaarg. Why don't they just put a photo up and save everyone the time and hassle......

If you can tell me I'd greatly apprecite any help!
