Doesn't really matter. I would wire the black/red wire to red, and black to black on the stove, but it's just 2 seperate 120v circuits. They are both 'hot'.

How to install a 3 way plug for stove


If I understand correctly, your stove plugs into the wall.
Your stove plug looks similar to one shown
30912b3.jpg


Review wires inside wall.
There are 2 hot wires which are red and black
There is 1 neutral wire which is white
And there is a bare ground wire

Connect wires so they match image above.
2 hot wires, black and red go across from each other
White neutral connects to flat prong on top
Bare ground connects to round prong on bottom
Older wiring might not have both white and ground ... if you do not have both, then connect the wire you have to the flat prong on top

I have an electric stove that has 1 black, 1 red


Since 1996, the NEC has required that all stoves and dryers be wired with a 4 wire configuration; 2 hot wires (red/black - supplies 240 volts), the bare green ground wire and a white neutral wire. Before you do anything, review this article which speaks to the 3-wire/4-wire arrangement. Good luck!

Gas oven electrical hookup issue


Hello. I can help you. What you have there at the wall is a circuit with 120 volts of power available. Your Gas oven requires 240 volts of power, thus the additional [red] wire. That said, they do not match up.

You will have to run a 240 volt wire from your electrical panel to rear of your stove opening with the correct circuit breaker in the panel, the correct amperage wire to the stove, the correct receptacle for the stove and the correct plug on the stove.

This is serious electricity here so do not proceed on your own as you could get seriously hurt or worse.

Frigidaire self cleaning stove mod FEF369cgsb ser vf94422321 was originally wired direct and it shows 4 wires. Now I want to use a plug and outlet, 3 prong. How do you connect the 3 prong plug? thank you...


Vivian
the original wiring probably had a red, white, black, and green wire. It is 240 volts. The red is hot, carrying one leg of 120 volts. The black is also hot, carrying 120 volts. The white is neutral, and the green is the ground.

I am against altering this, but you can wire the red and black each to a hot leg, and wire the white and green to the bottom ground. This then introduces a ground wire to your neutral bar in the circuit panel, which is not the best way to do it, but will work.

Best to get an electrician to wire a 4 wire cable to a four prong outlet, and then use a four wire pigtail with a 4 pronged plug.

Lots of people modify it, they ground the green wire to the stove, where the wire originates,and to the box with the outlet in it where it hooks onto the plug if it is metal. Then you have a part ground. And that is assuming you have a cable with wires sticking out to wire to a plug.

Boils down to your decision. If the above isn't the case, get a four pronged outlet and wire the red and black to the top two prongs, the white to the neutral, and the green to the metal box it sits in.

Just purchased new electric stove. The old stove had been hard wired. Black, white and copper. The new stove is asking to connect red, white and black. what should i do ?


Normaly black, white, copper (ground) is a 2-wire 110 volt, black white, red, copper is a 3-wire 220volt circuit. You must have a 3-wire cicuit run from circuit breaker box to stove connector.

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.
