Question about Ovens
Oven = Westinghouse Freestyle 662. I stupidly unplugged my elements to make sure I got the right ones. The elements have four blades, two on the inner core and two on the outer layer. I have three plugs in my oven. The single wire on one side is black, I gather that goes on the core. The other side has two plugs, green and brown (the brown [on the fan element] is white on the griller element). The first time I plugged green onto the core, it sparked and blew the fuse, the elements were undamaged. If I put green on the outer layer will it damage the elements (A$80)? or is that how they should be? PS: next time I'll take a photo first... thanks.
Oven wiring has the same conventions as house wiring.
green = earth, outside coating
brown or white = one of core ends
black = the other end

I did the same thing.
Except I have two white wires on one side and one pink and one green on the other side.
Each side seems to have three pins.
One pin is connected to the outside skin (I think this is earth)
The two other pins are joined t the centre core of the element.
It is the same on each side
