I BOUGHT THIS MODEL (LER7648K02) ELECTRIC DYER USED WHICH CAME WITH A 4-WIRE PLUG. HOWEVER, I HAVE A 3-WIRE RECPTACLE. I BOUGHT A 3-WIRE GE PLUG. WHICH TERMINAL DO I PUT THE NEUTRAL WIRE ON? THE MIDDLE...


Replace your three wire plug with a four wire plug. You will have to add a ground wire.

In your present plug you will find a white neutral and two 110 wires (AKA 220) one black and one red. There is no green ground in your present plug, There should be a ground in your present box, if not, you can add one to the nearest cold water pipe. If you are uncertain how to do this, maybe you should consult a licensed electrician. Conversely, you can change the 4 conductor wire from the new machine to a three wire - simply omit the ground.

Whats the big deal? There is a extra margin of safety with the additional wire - providing a path to ground in case of trouble.

Your call.

Replacing an old electric range that was hard wired (8 gauge), red, black and a bare wire. New range allows hard wiring, but the terminal block has connections for black, red and white (neutral). Can I...


White to bare wire, the bare wire runs to the common or ground in your breaker box.
Your black to black should go to a breaker in your panel.
The red to red goes to same breaker but to the opposite screw. 1 leg is from 1 side of buss bar and 1 from the other each 1 carries 120volts giving you 240 at the stove.
This can go as low as 220 and you will be okay.
ANYTIME WHEN WORKING WITH ELECTRIC TURN BREAKER OFF!!! TEST TO SEE NO POWER IS AT YOUR WORK!! LOCK THE BOX SO IT CAN NOT BE TURNED BACK ON!!
THANK YOU

Need to re wire drop in range my wires r red white and black your wires r red and black wich two colors should i combine


The RED and the BLACK wires are the HOT leads. This means they each have 120VAC on them. You simply match the corresponding colors (red to red, black to black). DO NOT connect them ALL together. The WHITE wire is neutral (0 VAC). In a 3-wire configuration, the neutral is grounded to the equipment cabinet. The following link explains:

Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

Oh my! The white and black are normally both HOT wires!!! Bare copper is ALWAYS a ground wire, and also can work as neutral. Neutral is the middle prong on the plug.
Turn off the breaker before even touching your appliance, there might be 110v on the metal parts!!!

Black and white should be on the sides, and bare copper - in the middle.
Before switching the wires make sure that black and white really are the hot wires: there should be 220-240v between them.

2 wire from house 3 wire at stove


Okay, the normal color coding for a 220-240VAC receptacle is as follows:

White (Neutral) - 0VAC
Black (HOT) - 110 VAC
Red (HOT) - 110 VAC

I suspect that the two black wires from your power panel are the two hot leads in your case. That is...each one should read 110-120VAC. Verify this my measuring each black lead to ground. The copper wire is probably a ground or neutral. It sounds like this is an older house (?).

The following link will give you some advice as well:

In addtion, the electric service for major appliances like a Range or Dryer should have its OWN dedicated circuit to prevent overloading. I hope you find this information helpful. If you have questions, please let me know.

I need a wiring diagram to wire my oven to the house power. Whirlpool electric model# rb260pxyb


You will have 3 or possibly 4 wires coming out of the oven Red and Black go to the hot leads in the junction box.Usually red & black but could be 2 black. White goes to white Bare/green go to the white if no Bare/Green available. This is for a wall oven. If the stove is free standing and you want to attach a cord. Just buy the cord that matches the outlet in your house. Make sure it is a range cord and not a dryer cord. They are very similar. If a 3 conductor cord (most common) outer two terminals are the hot ones. There is a wire or metal strap between the frame of the range and the center (neutral )terminal . On a 3 conductor cord leave this connected. On a 4 conductor cord remove this wire and connect it to the green/bare wire in the cord. There may be a vacant terminal on the block for this purpose. If not use a wire nut.
