Getting a new range and decided to install outlet prior to arrival so that the plug wire can be attached and ready to go. The current range is hard wired with 300v to ground, Type SE cable, Style U Type RH, 3 wire (Red/Black/bare) 8 guage AL. Made sure the outlet I purchased was AL compatible. Stopped when I saw that the bare wire was used as the neutral. Older post indicated that the bare wire in SE wire could be used for current load. Can this wire be used or is a new feed required.
Thanks for your help,
