I live in a house built in 1962, which has a 3 wire circuit for the stove. That was fine until I bought a new stove requiring a 4 wire circuit. I have purchased the new 4 wire receptacle, the new cable going from the receptacle to the stove, and 6-3 w ground cable to run to the service panel. My old ITE panel only has two ground bars, it doesn't have seperate neutral bars like I've seen in some of the newer service panels. This is the only service panel I have.
The current 3 wire configuration has Black & Red going to the breaker with the ground connected to the grounding bar. Can I convert to the new 4 wire circuit by connecting it's Black & Red wires to the breaker, and the White wire and ground to the grounding bar?
I thought I read you can do this on the Main service panel, but not subpanels. I am trying avoid the costs of moving to a new panel and hiring an electrician to install it if possible, but I don't want anything that is not safe.
