wiring a ge range
 
I have a GE range with four wires, red black white and a ground. I wired it with red and black , stove work but no power to control panel. So I used the white wire with the red wire. had power now but it sent 240 to panel and it blew the panel. Where should the white wire go? I'm getting another control panel and don't want to blow this one. The control panel works the oven clock etc.

Back up 3 steps:

#1) what sort of wiring/receptacle does your house have available?
is it fairly modern with the 4 conductors your new stove wants to see?

#2) What sort of power cord are you using?
is it an OLD 3 conductor cord or NEW 4 conductor cord?

#3) Do you have the install instructions which tell you how to wire the range
depending on the type of wiring/receptacle your house has?

somewheres you lost me, your stove has a red, black, white, and ground. You hooked up only the red and black? Then instead of hooking the white wire to the white wire on the stove you hooked it to a hot wire? Why didn't you hook it to the white wire?? Very expensive lesson.
