Power cords for Ranges and Dryers are not included with the appliance. You will have to note what type of plug receptacle you will be plugging into to ensure the cord you purchase will match the receptacle. All major home improvement centers carry all the standard cordsets.

How do you connect the LG DLEX5101V Dryer to the electrical outlet on the wall if there is no cord to plug in?


There are a couple of types of plugs in homes - and the dryer manufacturer use this excuse to not ship a cord with the dryer - profiting that much more. You'll need to purchase a cord set for your dryer. Assuming you live in the U.S., that means you need a 30 amp 240 volt cord. That's easy enough, but it does get harder.

Most homes have an outlet that has three slots in it - like the one below:
steve_con_39.jpg
A 240 volt, 30 amp, 3 wire dryer plug.

New homes have a safer, 240 volt 30amp 4 wire plug. They look like the one below:
steve_con_40.jpg
A 240 volt, 30 amp, 4 wire dryer plug.

The code states that when a dryer is purchased it should be connected via a 4 wire cord. This means if you have the older, 3 wire outlet - it will have to be changed along with the entire length of cable between the electrical panel and the outlet (the new outlet needs a 4 wire cable - the older plug was supplied by a 3 wire cable).

Those are the rules. Many people opt to purchase the older 3 wire cords so that they can connect directly to the 3 wire outlet already installed in their home. As an electrician, I have to caution you on doing that. It is a violation of the electrical code as it has been identified as an unsafe condition. The code hopes to rectify this by slowly requiring new dryers to be wired with 4 wire cords and making the homeowner upgrade the old 3 wire outlet to a newer, safer 4 wire outlet. Of course, no one will come to see what you had and if you changed it, etc.

Mose hardware stores, Home Depot, Lowes, etc. sell these cords for under $20. Make sure you choose a 30 amp dryer cord - and not the similar looking but thicker 50 amp stove or range cord.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply.

We have a GE gas stove. The burners all ignite; the broiler lights up, but the oven does not heat up. Doesn't even start to heat up. Can homeowner repair this kind of problem? We don't have any money to...


If you just purchase it or it is still under warranty take it back it going to cost the same to repair. You also run the danger of creating an electrical fire.

Power, no heat unless oven is set on "simmer" mode.


it sounds like u have a voltage problem, do you have a volt meter? check to see if you are getting 220v at the outlet where your stove plugs in, next check the plug cord and the connections where your cord attaches to the unit, connections good and tight? plug stove back in and check the voltage, unless you have a serious problem burned wires in stove problem should be corrected by now

Jenn air electric range wiring diagram


In a normal house, black and red are the hot wires and are wired to a circuit breaker or fuse at the panel box. White goes to the ground bar. Sometimes the white(neutral) is seperated from the ground. Sometimes they can be connected together. At the fuse box they both go to the silver ground bar. If you are attaching a cord and plug purchase one to match the outlet you have. Usually at the terminal block the hot wires are on the outside. Neutral in the middle. At the terminal block there is a metal strap or wire going from the center terminal to the frame of the stove. If the cord you have is just 3 wires leave it. If the cord you have uses 4 wires remove the strap and connect it seperately to the green or ground wire on the cord.

To install electric stove ...what is the recommended and required amps number

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR APPLIANCE before beginning any service procedure.
Most of the electric ranges have either a 3 prong or a 4 prong gray electric cord that usually has a 220 plug, follow the color wires and match them to the wiring panel in back of the range. I am not sure on the amps, you may want to check with your local appliance dealer and also the customer’s owner’s manual, so check on the plug in the wall and then purchase the correct plug according to the number of prongs in the outlet and once installed level the range with the leveling legs. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local appliance dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. You did not give me a brand name or model # so check with the silver tag on the actual appliance and sometimes that will tell you the number of amps.
Thanks, Don – The Appliance Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.

All of the items you mention that do work, are 120 volt items.
All the items that do NOT work are 220 volt items.
Sounds like you have a voltage problem, you will need to use a meter to check if you have 220 volts a/c to the outlet the stove plugs into. Take care when doing the following, you will be around live voltage and could get hurt. If you are uncomfortable working with a live circuit best to call someone in to do it for you. Check for 220v at the outlet for the stove (where the stove plugs into), if you have it there, go to where the cord attaches to the stove and check at that point. You should have either a 3 or 4 wire cord on the stove, On the rear of the stove there is a terminal block that the cord is fastened to. Between RED and BLACK you should have 220v, between RED and WHITE and BLACK and WHITE you should see 120v. Another thing to check is that the nuts holding the wires from the cord to the terminal block on the stove are turned down tight. A loose connection there will give you the same problem you have as well.
