Question about GE Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Bought a GE counter top range to replace an old GE counter top. New range has three wires: black, red, and bare copper. House wires are black, black (both read 110v live each) and a bare aluminum. Not sure which goes where.

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.

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.

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.

Just purchased new electric stove. The old stove had been hard wired. Black, white and copper. The new stove is asking to connect red, white and black. what should i do ?

Normaly black, white, copper (ground) is a 2-wire 110 volt, black white, red, copper is a 3-wire 220volt circuit. You must have a 3-wire cicuit run from circuit breaker box to stove connector.

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.
