wiring a stove

i hooked up a 4 wire connection to a new stove. I did not remove the copper bonding strip between the neutral wire connection and the green ground wire connection on the stove. Will this cause a problem?

Yes, by not removing the bonding strip, you have created a ground-fault condition on the neutral conductor.

In essence, the outer frame of the appliance is now part of a current-carrying conductor.
