Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have just purchase a new GE JDP47 range, and am hooking it up now. The GE delivery people left me with a 4 wire plug. They said I need it for code. When I removed old GE range, I found that it only had 3 wires. Home Depot, where I purchesd it said that I could use the 4 wire plug, just connect the ground and nuetral to the nuetral connection together on the range. Is that correct ????

I just bought a used jbp82 and the plug does not fit the house plug in. Its a 3 prong and the stove is a 4 prong. Can this be worked out somehow?


You need to change the plug from the old stove to the new stove. It is easy to do. Black on right. white in center, and red on left. The 4th wire is the ground or green. You will not have that one to hook up.

Please advise me the correct wiring method for the mains connection of a kacher HDS10/20-4 m, as ther is not a plug connection already afixed, and ther are four wires extending from the mains cable black...


you should be able to tell by following the wires. 2011 code is that all ranges require 4 wires 2 live (to make 220) and 1 ground and one neutral which are essentially the same. However I cannot tell you that you can hook up the neutral and ground to the same wire. Code requires two separate wires (which you probably don't have if this is a new replacement and you haven't done it recently) Is there a difference between ground and neutral if you look in a fuse box you will see they are sometime connected to the same bar. What you should do short of running a new wire from the box I can't tell you just want you to be aware what is going on

The stove will beep and show a fs code. what is the problem with it. it does it when she id=s baking, and yesterday when the stove was not being used.


Haven't seen an "fs" code on this unit, but here's an article about GE oven error codes and failures that may help with your diagnosis:

I was cleaning my ge flat top electric stove when i heard a buzzing sound and the oven controls quit working


Sounds as if moisture has gotten into the oven controls. If it did the control has shorted out.

F7 code flashes and beeps


F7 stuck keypad
Stuck keypad may mean relay is turned on.
Determine if problem is with the Key Panel or Control by:
1. Pushing CLEAR/OFF pad.
2. Disconnecting Ribbon Cable from control and waiting at least 32 seconds to see if Code recurs

If code recurs, problem is in the control. Replace control.

If code does not recur, problem is with the Key Panel.

Oven goes into Hyper Hot Immediateley?


It's either a problem in the board or one of the elements is shorted to ground.  Most likely one of the relays on the board is bad so the board would have to be replaced.  If you have a multimeter you can check this.  Unplug the range and take the back panel off to get to the elements.  Take one wire off of each of the elements. Set meter to ohms to check resistance.  Put one meter lead on one end of the element (where you disconnected the wire) and the other lead to ground.  If that shows resistance then the element is shorted to ground.  Do this with both elements.  If neither element is grounded then replace the oven control board.

Oven and keypad will not work.


longtallez The first thing I would recommend you to do is to reset the power. Locate the circuit breaker for the range and turn it off, wait a few minutes and turn it back on. It works the same way like you reboot you PC when it gets stocked. Let me know if it would not help and we will go further. Gendos...post back
