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.

Thermador c272ub double oven is it single fase wireing


yes,the black and red era the 2 wires that supply 120 volts each for the required 240 volts necessary to operate the oven,the white is the neutral wire and the green is the case ground wire,and it should be connected to any metallic part on the oven not with the white wire,only if the power supplying this oven comes directly from the main power panel in the house and isn't off a sub panel before the oven can this be considered ok to be connected together

Error code F3 - what does it mean and how do i fix it.


F3 Error Code - Shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD)

Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.

The first thing I would do is remove the oven from the cabinet, remove the back cover and check the wire harness from the the oven sensor to the control board. Eliminate the old sensor connection to the wire harness and reconnect it, using a high temperature porcelain wire nuts.

Hope this helps.

My wires are labeled A1,A2 ,A3 and A4 .how do they connect to the terminal block


hi..there is color coding on the wires..BLACK WIRE is the live wire(wire #1) which should be connected on top of the terminal supply of your oven (if vertically positioned) and sometimes to the leftmost right(horizontally positioned),then the RED WIRE to the bottom (vertically positioned),or rightmost part (horizontally positioned) and the WHITE WIRE is at the center(both horizontally/vertically positioned0 and the GREEN wire must be connected to the grounding of the unit just below/beside the terminal supply of your oven..hope this helps..

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.

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.

How connected


You can connect it either way. However I would recommend either split-bolt connectors or ring lugs w/ bolt and nuts rather than wire nuts, if you choose to hard wire it.

3 wire oven with 2 wire source


Your new oven utilizes 220 volts, but it also has some 110 volt features that need a neutral to work properly. Your old oven was wired without the neutral, probably when the house was built. There are 2 answers to your question. #1, no you should have an isolated neutral or common (same thing) wire, so it should have one. #2, if you connect the white on the new oven to the ground wire it will work. The neutral wires are all connected to the grounds at the breaker panel. Look at it if you don't believe me. The ground is there as a safety to you. if you connect the neutral (the white wire on the new oven to ground) you will be eliminating the safety feature on that appliance. So, I do not recommend you connect the white wire on your new oven to the ground wire out of the wall. But if you do it will work, you will just not have any back up protection if there ever is a problem with the electrical on that appliance. I hope this wasn't too confusing, the answer is you will need to wire the oven properly by adding another wire if you want to be completely safe and within electrical codes.
