wiring a whirlpool cooktop
I have a whirlpool cooktop....it has four wires....red, black, white, and green.......my house has three wires...white, black and bare copper ground.
The old cooktop had a black wire attached to the black house wire, a red wire attached to the white house wire and the bare ground attached to the bare ground house wire.
The wiring diagram puts black stove wire to black house wire, the red stove wire to the red house wire, the green or bare wire to the white house wire...this doesn't attach the white stove wire to anything?
Senerio 1: black stove and red stove wires to black house wire, white stove wire to white house wire and green stove wire to bare ground wire from house.
Senerio 2: black stove wire to black house wire, red stove wire to white house wire, green wire and white wires from stove to bare copper house wire.
