Hardwire fridigaire electrolux gallery series stove top. Hooked black and red from branch to black and red from stove top. Neutral side hooked green and white from from stovetop to neutral side. Ho


Should be correct. Maybe it power supply problems.

Have you verify that the line you connected are receiving power on both hot legs ( Red and Black) and that neutral White wire) is actually connected to ground? Use a voltage meter and ohm meter to to do your tests.

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.

How to install a 3 way plug for stove


If I understand correctly, your stove plugs into the wall.
Your stove plug looks similar to one shown
30912b3.jpg


Review wires inside wall.
There are 2 hot wires which are red and black
There is 1 neutral wire which is white
And there is a bare ground wire

Connect wires so they match image above.
2 hot wires, black and red go across from each other
White neutral connects to flat prong on top
Bare ground connects to round prong on bottom
Older wiring might not have both white and ground ... if you do not have both, then connect the wire you have to the flat prong on top

I have a whirlpool dryer ler5624bwo it is zaping us how is the plug wired to the back i think maybe some one switched the black or red power for the white neutral the plug is a 4 wire 2 rectangular on...


Black and red go to the outside terminals, white goes to the middle, and green goes to the frame of the machine.  You can look up at the wires coming down to the plug terminal and match up the colors.  Your ground is green and goes to the frame of the machine.  Green is the wire that is supposed to pop the breaker and prevent you from getting shocked so make sure you hook it up to the frame.

Im putting in new stove. i have 3 wire(6 gauge)


most stoves require a 4 wire plug..red, black, white and ground..the white is needed for the 110V to work properly..ground is there for safety incase something shorts out it will blow a fuse/trip circuit breaker

Frigidaire self cleaning stove mod FEF369cgsb ser vf94422321 was originally wired direct and it shows 4 wires. Now I want to use a plug and outlet, 3 prong. How do you connect the 3 prong plug? thank you...


Vivian
the original wiring probably had a red, white, black, and green wire. It is 240 volts. The red is hot, carrying one leg of 120 volts. The black is also hot, carrying 120 volts. The white is neutral, and the green is the ground.

I am against altering this, but you can wire the red and black each to a hot leg, and wire the white and green to the bottom ground. This then introduces a ground wire to your neutral bar in the circuit panel, which is not the best way to do it, but will work.

Best to get an electrician to wire a 4 wire cable to a four prong outlet, and then use a four wire pigtail with a 4 pronged plug.

Lots of people modify it, they ground the green wire to the stove, where the wire originates,and to the box with the outlet in it where it hooks onto the plug if it is metal. Then you have a part ground. And that is assuming you have a cable with wires sticking out to wire to a plug.

Boils down to your decision. If the above isn't the case, get a four pronged outlet and wire the red and black to the top two prongs, the white to the neutral, and the green to the metal box it sits in.

Cooktop WIring


To complying with changed Codes (effective in 2002 ) regarding stoves, ovens and dryers. You will need a 120/240 volt 4 wire 40 amp and 50 amp circuit. This
Decades ago it was permitted to use a 3 wire system (having two 120 volt hots (Black and Red) and 1 combination ground/neutral wire) (green and white) to serve stoves, cooktops, ovens and dryers.
The Code change now requires all stoves and dryers in NEW construction to have the 4 wire set-up (now having two 120 volt hots, 1 white neutral and one green or bare wire ground).
Existing wiring is grand-fathered under the Code change.....I advise you to change the feed wiring over to the the 4 wire set-up...
because - as with ALL Code changes in the past...it will eventually become mandatory for all stoves, ovens and dryers as the grand-father clause drops off. By complying now...
BUT the wiring will need to change to 8/3 with ground. (having 4 wires inside one outer jacket).This is the primary reason for the Code change....to provide a greater margin of safety to the user.
I can NOT recommend the 3 wire hook-up...the 4 wire provides a seperate ground and neutral -
which makes the chance of a user shock when touching the metal frame (from an internal fault in the oven) much less likely then the old 3 wire set-up....
which did NOT have the seperate ground and neutral.
