Oven/Micro Combo wiring....


I appreciate the time you spent in getting me this info!

I called Jenn Air this AM and they did say there is a whip on there. I called my electrician and he will be back to remove the outlet and hardwire it to the wip (using the 4 wire method).

Again, thank you for your time!

Your welcome

Keep watching this thread but I believe you have the information you need to get your unit installed properly.

Househelper may have some added input.

And keep asking questions if any come up.

One thing and your electrician will probably do this. If you notice in the diagram they don't show a ground wire jumper from the box to the ground wires from the supply and oven in the wirenut. When you install the metal 4x4 box it will have a threaded hole in the back to accept a green ground screw. You need to take a short piece of wire and loop the end and fasten it under the green screw and then put it in the wire nut with the other ground wires. This grounds the box. You can run up to the big box and purchase these items . They also have premade green insulated grounding wires that will work if you choose. You will also need the correct connector to terminate the whip to the metal box. Don't for get the cover and you may want to get one that has a knockout in the center in case you choose to use it.

It is possible that they intended the metal whip to ground a metal box but I wouldn't go that route I would ground the box with a bonding jumper.

Ok, we are all set and up and running. COnnected, hardwired in junction. Oven did come with a 4 wire wip on it. Put it into a junction box connectiong all 4 wire's (neutral and ground seperate) and we are now cooking!

Now if I could just get the unit to fit, seems to maybe be 1/4 to deep (could also be that the wall behind it is bowed) as the cabinet is new and is 24" deep.
