How do I install a 220 volt outlet using existing wiring?

I would recommend getting an electrician. If you chose not to any mistakes you make can be a safety hazard and possibly kill somebody.

In this area we are required to use a 4 wire connection; Phase, Phase, Neutral (bare or white in the US), Earth (green in the US). You are missing the Earth connection and will need to run a wire back to your electrical panel and connect to the earth bus. Earth and Neutral are connected together at one point in your home. In older systems the Neutral was used for the earth connection as well, this is dangerous if a fault occurs. The Earth may also be called ground as could the Neutral but they are different even though they are connected connected together at one point in your system. If you have an older electrical system and do not have the appropriate Earth connections I would highly recommend hiring an electrician, electricity can cause fires and kill.

I have a indesit 90cm duel fuel cooker can some one tell me how to dimantle the oven door so i can clean in between the two pieces of glass

first you need to remove the door from the oven, Open the door fully and on the hinges you will see a little flap bit on each hinge, flip them over so they lock the hinges open.
Left the door up slightly and you will be able to remove the door.
Place the door on a soft surface handle side down and remove the screws around the edges, You will see how it is held together and be able to finish taking it apart.
When putting it back together make sure the insulating material and the rubber seals are located correctly.

Oven wontr come on, but broiler does//

you have a bad ignitor part number 74007498 and it's around 65 dollars.pull out the racks and remove the floor of the stove and you'll see the ignitor screwed to the burner tube,wet the screws with a wet paper towel,they will come out easier or if it makes it any easier remove the tube and then remove the ignitor.first start the stove if the ignitor glows but doesn't ignite the flame in 40 seconds or less it's bad,if it doesn't glow at all check it for continuity but it sounds like the ignitor is bad,if the new ignitor comes with wire nuts,cut the wires close to the body of the old ignitor,trim some of the wires back on the new ignitor and wire nut them together with the ceramic wire nuts,on some you can get the screws out of the ignitor,cut the wires close to the body,mount the new ignitor,trim back the wires on the new ignitor and wire nut them together and you're done,it doesn't matter how long the wires are just as long as the wire nuts are under the floor and away from the might help to remove the bottom draw to get at the wires,hope this helps and good luck.

I had the top off and the burners out of my GE stove. there is a wire that hooks up to my burners and u can't find out where the wire looks like a ground wire to me. flat end on it. it...

if it is ground it should be GREEN, The end may be a spade connector, there should be
on the shiny clamps, which retain the black blocks, a small tab which this plugs onto.

If the wire is NOT GREEN then it should go into the black block, since it will be a power.
I hope this helps.

F2 button flashing and beeping in green oven is on and light to oven wont go off no buttons working.

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
This is a very common problem with ovens
The F2 Error code means the oven has detected an excess temperature condition. Most often this is due to a bad temperature sensor which only costs about 60 to 80 dollars depending on the oven
How to remove and replace the temperature sensor. In most GE or well known brand ovens, when you open the door, you'll see the rod-shaped temperature sensor sticking out of the back wall at the upper left. It's about six inches long and a bit more than 1/8" in diameter, held in place with two screws.

Turn off the circuit breaker (built-in ovens) or unplug the range before attempting the replacement.

The replacement sensor will come with instructions, but basically it's a matter of removing the sensor, pulling out the wires to where they are connected and disconnecting them. You may have to snip. The replacement sensor will come with high-temp wire nuts to hold the new connection. Polarity doesn't matter; it's a straight resistance thermocouple. Hook it up, be sure you poke the connections back far enough so that they're on the other side of the thermal insulation and not resting against the back of the oven.

If you continue getting the F2 error after replacing the sensor, then the problem is likely in the control module - this is the circuit board behind the keypad and clock.

My Maytag Gemini cooktop and top oven work. The bottom oven will not heat up past 100 degrees. What is the problem?

Replacing the ignitor is not difficult or dangerous. To get at it, you will first take out the racks. Then undo the box-like cover inside the bottom of the oven; the screws face front. Underneath that is a wing-shaped cover, held in place with wingnuts. Remove it.

The pipe that the gas comes out of heads straight back; the ignitor is just to the left. You'll be able to see the wires going out the back of the oven. Remove the plates that hold the tube/ignitor combination.

Once the pipe is free, then get your head out of the oven and pull out the oven so you can see, and get at, the back. On the lower left is a cover, about 12 x 15 or so, held in place by four screws. Remove it.

At this point you can see where the ignitor connects to the orange wires (at least mine are orange) with a plastic connection. Undo that connection.

Viola! You have removed the ignitor! Now, before you forget, make a diagram of everything you did. Put the screws in separate plastic baggies, with paper number tabs that correspond to your drawing. This will greatly help in putting everything back together.

There is a green wire with a 2 prong female end in the center back of the cook top. where does this attach I have looked and felt everywhere. I spoke to tech support he said it was the grease pan ground....

Angeashmore: We had the same green wire problem. The catch is that the 2-prong female plug just looks like it should receive a matching 2-prong male plug. In fact, at the center back of the pull out Drip Tray there is a very small flange next to a small hole. That flange slips right into the plug, but under those two prongs which then hold it in place. Its length allows you to disconnect when you remove the Tray for cleaning, but if that's the first time you spot it loose, you'll think it plugs in somewhere up front and will look in vain for a matching 2-prong male plug. I'm guessing they provided a ground for the Drip Tray since it is otherwise fully suspended on nylon rollers. No instructions about this in the set-up manual, so likely omitted frequently. It's just a ground wire, and won't really fix anything else, and would appear to work just fine without it, but just a safety feaqture. Confirmed by tech support at Viking on 1/24/2011. Your initial post put me on the path to success here, so thanks! .....Jim

Wiring electric oven

Hi, yes connect red to red, green to green, black to black, black is neutral, red is live and green is ground, which means you're using 220 volts.

My progress to date (20090127):
1 Turn off the gas supply to the oven
2 Turn off the electricity supply
3 Remove the oven linings
4 Remove the storage drawer
5 Remove the three screws holding on the bottom trim and the trim
6 Crank up the front roller
7 Pull out the oven carefully making sure the gas hose and electrical lead are long enough and not caught
8 Working from the rear of the Rangemaster, for the right-hand oven, remove the four screws on the corners of the large cover plate at the back of the oven about half way down on the left-hand side as viewed from the back.
9 Remove the cover plate.
10 Go to the front of the oven. Above the burner assembly, towards the left is a thin metal rod running front to back. This is held in place by a clip at the back and by the hole in the metal frame at the front. Remove the metal clip at the back using a pair of long-nosed pliers. Retain the clip.
11 This should release the metal rod (flame sensing device) and you should be able to push it through the hole and out at the back. It is attached to a long copper wire.
12 Go to the back of the range. You should be able to work the wire back through the hole in the rear metal plate and up to the gas valve. The wire is held in place at the gas valve by a bent clip on the rear right. Carefully bend this clip back towards the oven to release the wire.
13 The wire goes down under the gas valve and to a threded bolt end into the bottom of the gas valve ad the bolt is held in place using a locking nut.
14 Remove the locking nut using a small spanner. The threded bolt should now turn, with the aid of long-nosed pliers.
15 The next trick is to remove this threaded bolt on the end of the copper wire and I have not figured out how to do that. It will unscrew a good way but becomes tight and will not come out, as though something inside the valve is holding it in place. Could it be that the flame sensing device has to be removed and inserted from inside the gas valve? If so, what a daft piece of engineering this is.
16 HELP.

Majic chef gas range not sure of model #

You need to replace the oven igniter. It's what you see glowing. They grow weak with age. TURN POWER OFF before servicing this. The numbers can often be found behind drawer at lower front, on oven frame, on left or right near bottom.
Bring model # with you. It should be a standard magic chef igniter. Think it's 12400035.
Remove oven floor to access igniter. It's held on by 2 screws in side of burner. Put some dishwashing detergent on them before trying to remove them. Otherwise they might strip out. The new igniter may plug right in or you may have to cut wires and attach with enclosed wire nuts. The 2 wires to it can be attached either way.
