Question about Kenmore Vacuums
By your description it seems that You have telephone wire used. You only need two low voltage wires to complete the circuit to turn on the power to the central vacuum unit. The low voltage wires must be arranged so that when you insert the hose into any valve it closes the circuit. You will wire it as if the black and red are just one wire and the green and yellow are the other, they are actually doing exactly the same as if you only had two wires.

You should unscrew the small back panel, on the undercover should be a scetch of the wiring.
If not the three red are live, black is neutral and the g/y is earth, from number 5 to 1 connect as follows: 5 and 4-black,3,2,1 red and look for a screw type fitting or green wires to connect earth.
Its important to connect earth before operating the stove as it cuold lead to serious injury if not connected.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: 3 prong to 4 prong.
The following link will explain this for you:
As stated in the link, the WHITE wire from the power cord should be connected to the other WHITE wire at the terminal block and NOT grounded to the equipment frame. The neutral wires are to be connected at the terminal block only. The extra white wire you mention, may be a jumper wire that originally jumpered the neutral to the equipment frame from the 3-wire configuration. This wire may be reconnected to the frame with the GREEN (ground) wire from the power cord. I hope this helps you. If you still have questions, please let me know.

One of these wires is contains permanent live, neutral and earth. The other wil be heating on and hot water on, the earth on this wire will probably not be used.
you will have to trace the wiring back or test it!! Be carefull!!
