Stove top wiring


Hopefully someone can help. Just bought a new GE stove top and it has 3 wires ( blk,red, and bare ground ) . The old stove top was wired with 4 wires ( blk to blk, red to red, white to white and bare ground to bare ground ). What should i do with the white wire?

Just cap it off, but please check that the correct breakers and wire sizes are being used....
