Hi,
The wire coming in should have the same colors, just match up the wire colors and wire nut them together with large wire nuts ad them tape them. ground the green wire to the ground screw.
That's all there is to it!

Hello,

I suspect on teh wiring from the house the black&white will be the hot wires and the bare will be ground/neutral

use a volt meter before connecting tonew cooktop and check for;
black/bare to have 120volts
white/bare to have 120volts

if that is what you find...connect new cooktop as such;

black to black
red to (house) white

(cooktop) white and green to bare

Which from the red or the black wire comeing from the stove, is the hot one


Since you have a red wire you must have 10-3 romex. 10-3 has four wires. Three jacketed wires Red, Black, White and a bare copper wire. The is Red and Black are your two 120 legs (both hot) white is neutral and the bare is ground.

depending on your local electrical code:and I see that the unit is 240 Volts A.C., then RED=Power/Black=POWER(L1 & L2)/WHITE="N"Neutral/and GREEN=SAFETY GROUND,on the new unit, then use from the wall power BLACK = L1 and White= L2. then on the unit RED=L1 and BLACK=L2(either way you hook these 2 up there isn't a polarity issue on these 2 wires) on the units hook-up/then use the BARE supply wire as neutral and tie BOTH WHITE and GREEN from the unit together to this BARE wire

The green goes to the bare ONLY.

Likely the black was used as a neutral and the reds were 240 volts.

You need to investigate at your panel. If you see the black going to the neutral bar, abandon it by capping with wire nut. If you see both the reds going to adjacent terminals on a double breaker, connect one red to the red and the other red to the black of the cooktop,

I have 4 wires from the cook top and a black, white, and bare from the breaker. No instructions. My guess is white to white, green to bare, and black and red to black. Don't want to guess.


if it's 240volts and you have from the cooktop a red/black/white and green red&black are the two hot wires 120+120=240volts/white is the neutral/and green is safety ground-------as for the breaker wiresblack and white are the hot wires and the bare wire is the neutral it really shouldn't be a bare wire because even if it comes directly from the main house panel it does carry current,and by the n.e.c. white can't be used to carry power,unless it's marked at all visible locations with any color but green/check those wires and see what voltages you have before wiring to unit

Whirlpool Electric Cooktop Wiring


sound like you have a three wire setup on you house most commonly the black wire is the L1 wire or one of the hot wires and the red is the L2 wire and is also one of the hot wire in this instance your white wire would be your neutral/ground wire this would connect to the copper wire on your cook top depending on the model it would have a red wire a black wire and the copper wire but some may also have a white wire also if this is the case on a three wire setup you would attach the copper and white wires together also if needed you can goto the maufactures website and download an instalation guide.
