Sorry Schrade. You probably should have made a new post. Yours kinda got lost in the noise. The neutral terminal of the stove needs to be connected to the frame when you go to a 3-wire cord. How this is done is dependent on the brand of stove. Sometimes it is a wire that connects from the neutral terminal to a screw, and sometimes it is two wires connected together.

Copy on that - thanks.

I fabbed a strap out of a corner brace, to bridge from the frame where the wire was attached, directly to the neutral terminal. She's toasty now!



If you're like me, be careful (I'm highly allergic to electricity - gives me the shakes 'n stuff. And I'll share too. Friends are good for keepin' ya' 'grounded - know what I mean?)
