Wiring a 240v Delonghi cooktop


I am replacing an older cooktop with a 240v one and I was wondering if anyone can confirm the wiring for me.
The appliance has three wires; black, white and green. It says it does not use a neutral connection? AND, it keeps mentioning a red wirefrom the appliance but there isn't one.

That don't sound right. There has to be that red wire. EVERY range i've wired since forever is a four wire. Stubbie??? BUT if there is no neutral connection, then it would be three wire. What does Delonghi say?

Where did you buy this?

Can you post the model number preferably from the unit itself.

DEECT110VFS - 120 volts

or

DEECT212FSS - 240 volts

The white wire makes me think it's a 120 volt unit.

Wiring a 240v Delonghi cooktop


Let me step in for a min.

if you are conftable to work on this system then i will expain a easy way to do this.

make sure the range or countertop range breaker / fuse is off first

then you should see either the repectale or junction box to this countertop and open the cover and you see how many wire and the colour itself.

btw what year this house is build ?? [ the reason why i ask because there was a pretty big code change in 1999 code cycle ]

and if possible the wire size if not just tell us the breaker size we can go from there.

Merci, Marc

Wiring a 240v Delonghi cooktop


hi, I had to re-register from Cape45... it kept locking me out for some reason??

This is the model number: DEECT212F

It says it on the box and the unit itself also says 240v only. When I saw only 3 wires (white, black, green) I thought it must be a 110v unit by mistake but, I wanted to make sure.

My cooktop does not use a neutral. It had a Black, Red and Green wire only. I would contact Delonghi's Customer Service and ask about the red wire referred to in the instructions. Surely there must be a contact number in the instructions. I would not connect the white wire to a hot wire without the manufacturers OK. I am not a licensed electrician

If the nameplate on the unit says 240v, then the unit is 240v... regardless of the wiring colors...

The OP is talking about a cooktop, your talking about a range, there is a BIG difference.

ahh now i get it what ya mean with this 2 burner countertop device.

just hook up just like what stubbie saying with it but let me add one more word here with any XX-2 wires's anytime you use the white wire as hot please remark with marker like black red or other colour as long not green so you know it is a hot wire instead of netrual so in case in future someone else dont get it by mistake.

Merci, Marc
