New stove wiring black,red,white where.
 
Need to know what wire gos where in main box. Bought a new electric stove and have it all set up at the receptacle end and new 4 prong plug. #6 -4 wire but not sure about where the red, black, white wire go when connected to 50 amp breaker. I know that the plain copper wire goes to the bus bar; does the white also go to the bus bar and the red and black go to the breaker or dos the white and black go to the breaker and red to bus bar? I am going for the black,red to breaker and white to ground ( bus bar).

Is it a wall unit or a stove/range?The white is the neutral and if you are using a sub panel it has to go with the other whites on a seperate bus bar from the grounds.If you are coming out of a main panel the grounds and neutrals share the bars.
