No due majtory of the ranges are required netural conductor anyway beside few counter top units are straight 240 volt sans netural it can get by with it.
For your extsting A/C circuit I am pretty sure that is two conductor sans netural so I will NOT bother try to hook it up to your range better off just run new circuit for your range and be done with it on codewise and it have to be full 4 conductor cable or conductor in conduit one of the two.
