The installation instructions are in the user manual and the wiring must be done by an accredited , qualified electrician
do anything yourself and the warranty is void

SOURCE: Gas oven electrical hookup issue

Hello. I can help you. What you have there at the wall is a circuit with 120 volts of power available. Your Gas oven requires 240 volts of power, thus the additional [red] wire. That said, they do not match up.

You will have to run a 240 volt wire from your electrical panel to rear of your stove opening with the correct circuit breaker in the panel, the correct amperage wire to the stove, the correct receptacle for the stove and the correct plug on the stove.

This is serious electricity here so do not proceed on your own as you could get seriously hurt or worse.

SOURCE: I wired up the the Fridgedaire wall oven and it

the unit is 240 volts not 120 volts/its ok to have the wht and green tied together so long as it comes directly from the house main panel/new law in some places require them to be separate/wht=Neutral/Green=safety grd to case...now how many watts does this unit draw? 2/12 wires sound awful small for the input current/sounds like you need to upgrade to atleast 2#6 wires for power/1#8 for neutral and atleast a #10 for safety ground

SOURCE: i have a jenn-air wall oven it has a red wire a

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.

How many watts does my oven use?


The wattage will be on a plate on the outside of your appliance! Probably on the back or side! The wattage will depend on the country of use!

We have to replace the control panel on our Amana AOES3030E wall oven. We have the part but how do we access the area where the new part needs to go? I'm not seeing how in the user manuals I looked...


To replace the control panel, the wall oven needs to be pulled out about 10-12 inches to access the conrtol panel..it has screws on the side AND in the back of control panel taht have to come off to get into panel...typically it can be pulled out fairly easy a couple of feet without it tipping and falling out of cabinet but only pull out as little as necessary

I HAVE A AMANA SINGLE WALL OVEN THE ELEMENT SPARKED AT THE BACK OF THE WALL. I PURCHASED A NEWW ELEMENT AND WHENITOOK THE OLD ONE OUT THERE WAS NO WIRE TERMINALS AT THE ENDS OF THE PLUG IN END OF THE...


when it burnt off it fell somewhere between the oven chamber and the back panel.once finding it,its just a matter of splicing a new wire terminal end and attaching it to the element. The problem lies in thats its a built in wall oven and may be needed to be removed from the cabinet to find and repair this wire. Depending how tight it fits into the cabinet it may not come out easily and even break the wood around the cabinet. which of course you could face in pulling it out to replace it with a new oven. ONe thing to keep in mind is that all wall ovens are slightly different in size and the replacement oven needs to be pretty close to the size of existing one or the cabinet will need to cut or filled in so their wont be a gap left when new one is smaller leaving a gap in cabinet up to 2 inches on either top or side walls

I need the bottom heating element in an old westinghouse wall oven. the model # is OG25HXO


I am not certain what geographic region you are in but... Bake elements are often generic between brands. The key is to match up voltage, wattage, size, bends and terminals. Here are 2 pages of westing house elements:

http://www.partselect.com/PartSearchWizard.aspx?Appliance=Range+%2f+Stove+%2f+Oven&Brand=Westinghouse&PartType=Element+or+Burner&Electrical=Yes

I tried searching using OG25HXO with little success even on westinghouse sites US and AU.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a microwave oven that I need to take out.


These are mounted thru the cabinet above. there should be two bolts which you need to remove in the cabinet abobe. remove these while you have help holding the unit. it will not drop but is kind of hinged on the wall (a lip sits on a bracket on the wall) After removing the two bolts tip the unit forward and lift off the bracket on the back wall.Don't forget to unplug it and pull cord thru cabinet as well Good luck...

Continuous loud fan noise during use and long time once off.


fan noises are caused by contact of blades to housing, vibration of loose parts or bearings in motor. Check for these and oil fan shaft at bearing or oil holes. Is the noise from the vent or the oven itself.
