wiring wall oven


I have removed the old oven, I could not get to junction box to disconnect wires. I cut them from the back of old oven. Is it okay to connet wiring from new oven to those of the old oven thhat are still connect to the junction box as long as they have wire nuts and tape?

If every splice is in a junction box and same gauge wire must be used.

Is it okay to connect wiring from new oven to those of the old oven...
In principle... you should be OK.

BUT! I'm concerned about why you "could not get to junction box to disconnect"...
as this should not be difficult and probably should be fixed while you have things open.

wiring wall oven


Is it possible that the oven was wired directly to the home wire with no junction box/plug?

I have seen some people do that with a range and dryers. Not sure if it's legal.

I would try to find out while it's open and maybe install one. Leaving enough wire between oven and junction box to safely remove the oven for service.

wiring wall oven


Is the new range direct connect or does it have a plug on it?

There might have been a junction box inside the old oven. Your new oven might have the same. But if the cable will no longer reach it, you'll have to do something else. If there's room, you can mount a new junction box in the back of the cavity and make the connection inside it. All wire splices and junctions must be inside a box.
