Hard wireing a stove/oven


I have an old house. I am remodeling my kitchen and am putting in an oven. The old oven was directly wired and the issue I am having is there is 4 wires coming out of my oven and only 3 from the circuit box. Black,Red,White,Green are coming from my oven and Black, Red, Ground coming from my circuit box.
Not sure where to put the whit neutral wire. Green to ground I guess, black to black and red to red. But not sure about the white neutral. can anyone help?

The instructions should show you how to convert the oven to 3 wire operation. Most times a bond strap change is involved.

My sister gave me her oven because she changed out hers in her new house. There are no instructions and I'm not sure what a bond strap is?

The bond strap is a thin copper ribbon which it will connect between the netural and appalicne frame.

Merci.
