Question about GE JRP28 Electric Double Oven

Open Question

We just bought a GE Wall Oven Model Number: JRP28 and when connecting the wires from the house (red, black, yellow, and green) to the new oven (red, black, white, and bare) we connected Red-Red, Black-Black, Yellow-White+Bare, and Green-External screw (how it was on the old oven), leaving the bare wire and white wire crimped together. When we flipped the breaker back on there were sparks from the white+bare-yellow wires and nothing turned on. Later we uncrimped the white+bare wire and connected the green-bare and white-yellow. When doing this the bottom oven will turn on but the top oven and control panel do nothing. Did we break something or can this be fixed?

Thermador c272ub double oven is it single fase wireing


yes,the black and red era the 2 wires that supply 120 volts each for the required 240 volts necessary to operate the oven,the white is the neutral wire and the green is the case ground wire,and it should be connected to any metallic part on the oven not with the white wire,only if the power supplying this oven comes directly from the main power panel in the house and isn't off a sub panel before the oven can this be considered ok to be connected together

I think I can help you but i am a bit confused with the panel box and the junction box. If you want to reply explain the circuit in a bit more detail from the switchboard where the fuse is to the back of the oven. It would also be a good idea to have a voltmeter or test lamps handy. Does the double pole breaker do the Active and Neutral or is it 2 phases going through the breaker. Did the wiring used to be for a full range and now there is only the new oven in its place.

We are having a neff oven U15M62NOGB fitted. The wires in the booklet are earth on the left, live in the middle and neutral on the right. Is this correct as the neutral and live are the other way round on...


Yes, the installation instructions are correct. The wiring from your old oven isn't relevant.

Your query is a little confusing though. The new oven should have a power cable attached to it for connection to the mains supply. This should be on a separate circuit from your sockets and connected to an isolator switch. The wires in the power cable are colour coded to ensure that they are correctly polarised when connecting to the mains supply. I'm assuming you're in the UK as you list a GB model number, therefore, it should have a BROWN wire for LIVE, BLUE for NEUTRAL and GREEN/YELLOW for EARTH.

If your house wiring uses the old red (live) and black (neutral) colour coding, then you just need to ensure that the brown (live) wire from the oven lead is connected where the red wire from the supply is terminated. The blue (neutral) wire should be connected where the black wire is terminated and the green/yellow (earth) wire should be connected where the green wire is terminated.

Internally, the oven probably uses red cable for live and black for neutal, but you really shouldn't need to be doing anything with the internal wiring to install the oven.

You say you are having it fitted. Any competent installer would know (or check) the correct wiring order even if the instructions were missing. If you are installing it yourself, be sure are certain you understand what to do before attempting this and double-check the power for the oven circuit is off before you start.

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.

For anyone installing a replacement oven controller #WB27T10276, there is a GE publication # 31-10515 that should answer your questions. I bought a rebuilt control that did not have this info. with it. Lucky for me, a retail appliance parts store opened a box with a new control in it and copied the instructions for me.

IF you nhave a 3 wire feed fronm the house for your range, you connect the red and black for the power and then use the copper wire from the wall to connect to the white and copper wires from the range. All new construction must have a 4 wire feed to a range and dryer.
