Matching 220 3-wire cord to 220 range


I have a 50 amp breaker feeding a 3wire 220V (black, white and ground) receptacle. The new range has a black, a white and a red wire where the white is grounded to the frame. How do I attach the cord leads to the range wires (nuts) so that I don't fry my new range.

Thanks in Advance!

Like this picture…

The neutral (white) is usually the center wire. It should have ribs running the length of the cord. The outer 2 get hooked to black and red, doesn’t matter which.

Unless this is type SE cable it is wrong and should be corrected. A bare ground in NM cable should not ever carry neutral current.

Good point Speedy. I guess I assumed it was SE feeding the receptacle. I was commenting on the cord, but good catch.
