    My new wall oven is wired with a white, black, red, and a bare. My outlet has a white, bare and two black wires. What do I do? Thanks.

  2. Dave Rongey says:

    Hi Bill,
    The only difference with the described wiring is that there are two black wires at the oven outlet which should be the 240 volt source from the dedicated circuit, therefore the wiring is matched color for color, except the red wire of the oven will connect to the second black wire of the oven outlet.
    Note: The circuit wiring should be tested and verified.
    Important: The circuit should be turned OFF before making any wiring connections.

    Be Safe,
