I am removing my mothers old drop in range which was hardwired to a new range which has a 3 prond plug. I have purchased the female plug and am ready to attach the wires to it, but I am not sure which wires go where. There is a silver wire (that looks like a bunch of skinny wires all twisted to form a big wire) , then there is a copper wire and then a black wire.
Which wire is the one that goes to the bottom of the plug?
The old range was about a 1997 GE drop in Range, the new range is a 2006 that already has the 3 prong cord attached and is ready to be moved into place and plugged in. The house was built around 1989 if that might help. I am not at my mothers right now so I can not take a picture of the wires.
The old drop in was hard wired and I do not remember how it was wired.
