Question about Cooktops
I have to temporarily replace an old ccok top with an oldish electric chef with solid hotplates. There are 4 wires connected to the Chef, 1 green [presune earth] and 2 white and 2 black wires, and only 3 from the mains end ie black green and red. Is it ok to join the 2 whites to the mains live and the 2 blacks to the mains black and the green to the mains green - all joining with haevy duty cable conectors
I'm 'in the country' and 'sparkies' are hard to come by and this will be a temporary solution until our kitchen is renovated.
Make sure that the white wires are indeed line and not neutral and you probably have the right idea but without a wiring diagram or seeing the unit I cannot confirm this just make sure you aren't hooking up line voltage to the neutral on the unit. also your service has only three wires correct? this means you are piggy backing the neutral and chassis ground (green wire on appliance) not cool on a trailer or manufactured home be careful bud
