Oven wiring, old house.


With a 40 amp circuit, 8/2 w/grd, I would like to know the correct wiring procedure for the red wire from the oven to the existing 1982 house wiring. .
Obviously blk/blk, wh/wh, grd/grd...
red connects to ___?

Many thanks
LF

House - white, black, ground
oven - white, black, ground, red

I moved the oven and wiring to a new location in the kitchen and I spaced out taking note of what wire the red (oven wire) connected to on the house side.

Hi Pluf,

You moved the wiring? Now you need to bring it up to the latest code. It was grandfathered, having only 3 wires, but 4 are now required. Existing circuits are not allowed to be altered.

Check with your electrical inspector to be sure.

You'll have to run an 8/3 w/grd for the oven.

Then the wiring is easy.

white - white
black - black
red - red
ground - green or bare conductor.

Hope it helps.
