Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop
GE stovetop has red, black and ground. The wall has 2 blacks, white and ground? In reading different online articles, it appears some recommend capping the white off and others recommend combining the ground and the white. This presumes the red to black, black to black and ground to ground.
Which approach is best?
I'm assuming this is a 220/240v unit. The wall has two blacks, each with reference to white is 120v. Since you need 240 volts, you need to use both blacks. The third wire you'll need is ground. ALWAYS make sure you use a ground wire!!
Realistically, the white is connected to the Ground terminal in your circuit breaker box. Best practice says cap off the white, and use the GROUND.
