If you are running new wire to the cook top. You need to run 10x4 wire. The 12x4 wire is not large enough for the 220v. Also the 20 amp breaker is not large enough to run the cook top. You need to use a duel 30 amp breaker.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.

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


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.

Bake and broil do not work


assuming that the worst case senario has taken place
first thing i would check is ensure i have proper voltage at the outlet, 120 from each side to ground
220 across L1-L2
the elements are the only thing on the range that uses 220v
if you know how to use a mutimeter
you can test both the elements
disconnect the range at teh breaker
take out the screws at the back wall that hold the elements in
pull out about an inch becareful they dont leave much slack on the wires
disconnect on element terminal and apply your leads your looking for continuity, your meter should beep
if not replace the element
if yes, let the element hang ensureing niether terminal touches anything, reconnect the other terminal
now turn the stove on bake if your doing the lower
turn you meter to ac voltage
you should read 220v
anything less than that, your problem is before that

Keeping existing 220V for oven and getting 110V to cooktop


yes you need a seperate line for the cooktop. whoever hooked your oven and cooktop up in the first place should have never hooked them to the same line to begin with. you are lucky you never had issues.

Frigidaire smooth cooktop PLEC30S9EC


Smalltree, You may want to make sure that they have 220 wired to the cooktop. I've seen a lot of new construction where they are hooking the cooktops up to 120V and wondering why they're not working. Check this first and post back..Catriver.
