Replacing stove. What to do with blue and yellow wires?

I am replacing a stove top. The old one had six wires connected individually. Black, White, Red, Green (ground), Blue and Yellow.
My new stove top does not have any wires to connect to the Blue and Yellow. The Blue & Yellow wires are the ones coming from my elecrtical panel.

What do I do with them?

First, please don't do your own electrical work if you are unsure about what you're doing. It's worth it to hire an electrician.

Not sure what the blue and yellow wires could be. The others are standard 220V colors, but that doesn't mean that they are connected the standard way in the panel. If you know how to remove the panel cover and look at the breakers, make sure you do that before you assume anything. If you don't know how, call an electrician.

Assuming the blue and yellow are no longer needed, and that the other four are wired properly, you should disconnect the blue and yellow wires on both ends and remove them if possible. If you can't remove them, you should insulate both ends and mark them as being disconnected.

Maytag cook top Model # CSE 9000 ADB. A red, black, blue, yellow, white, and bare copper wire come out of the unit. How do I hook it up???


each colored wire is for a seperate burner, the white wire connects to the white neutral wire the bare wire connects to the ground the red and yellow wires connect to the red wire (L1) and the black and blue wires connect to the black wire (L2). i have the same model and i connected mine this way and it's working fine. mine is also connected in a box that has a seperate fuze for each burner so you can follow the red (L1) wires to the 2 fuzes and connect your red and yellow wires to these fuzes and the follow the black (L2) wire to it's 2 fuzes and connect your black and blue wires to these fuzes. i don't know if this box is necessary or ir you can just connect directly to the wiresin a regular box and rely on the breaker but it was already there from the old cooktop i replaced so i used it. hope this helps you

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.

My house wires from the electic stove top has 3 wires and my new bosch electric top has 4 on red, white, green, yellow?


hook the red and yellow off the new stove to the two hot phases-then connect the white on the new unit to the neutral power connection and finally the green wire can hook to the same neutral wire also as long as the power comes directly from the main electrical panel in the home, but not a sub-panel

3 wire cook top to a 4 wire outlet


Older 3 wire connectors where Wht=Neutral Ground Return, Red=One Phase Hot, Blk=Second Phase Hot, of 220VAC stove connections.

Newer Electrical code standard has a forth wire that is bare copper for a separate safety ground return.
I suggest you but a 4 wire pig tail cable for your stove top, available at Depot or Lowes, and connect 3 wires of this 4 wire cable just like the 3 wires are now connected. The 4th bare copper safety is attached to any metal part of the stove. Find a screw you can loosen to wrap it around and tighten.

Connecting new fan/motor assy


a capacitor is typically inline with your power source and stores a large amount of power to supply bursts of power when heavy draws occur. it sits between the source and the motor so you should have the (source - capcitor - motor) hot wires all conecting at the same place. The other wire on the capacitor should be the ground (if they have +/- markings use the negative as the ground).
