Convert Four Wire to Three wire for stove
Asked Feb 5, 2008, 02:55 PM
I had a four wire circuit from a dryer that I needed to convert to a NEMA 10-50R for my new Whirlpool electric range. I wired the new receptacle with two hots a and GROUND and capped off the neutral. I tested from the hots to the ground and I get 120V. From hot to hot I get 240 Volts.
The Whirlpool installation manual says to use the two hots and the neutral to connect the three prong pigtail to the range... (and I don't have a neutral... I have a ground).
Did I wire this correctly? Will it blow up the range? Should I rewire this circuit with two hots and a neutral instead?
