1) get a three wire outlet ("plug in")
2) get a 4 conductor cable.
The 4th wire is green or bare - ground the wire to the cabinet.
You are 'safer' with the 4 conductor wire. (In the past, White served as the neutral conductor and the case may have been 'bonded' to the white, providing a "ground". Today, I believe the code requires a separate ground. Even though the white and green join in the service panel and go both to ground and "back" to the utility, there is the possibility some installations are wired through a sub panel. Common use of white as neutral and ground is not allowed in a sub-panel in most jurisdictions). Black to black, Red to red, White to white and Green (or bare) to the frame. You can make a hole and connect it or use an existing screw that is nearby to make the connection.
If you have a volt meter, you can check your existing outlet. You should get 220 V between the two legs, 110 V between "red" and "white", 110 V between "black" and "white", 110 V between "red" and "ground", 110 V between "black" and "ground", and no reading between "white" and "ground".
The terminals on your existing outlet should be clearly marked and the color code of the wire should be clear although it is POSSIBLE the color of the conductors is all black. The above series of tests will help you determine what is what if necessary.
If you are still unsure, you should get the advice of a licensed electrician in your area (which I am neither)
I hope this helps you
