Electrical Troubleshooting Question:
I'm installing an oven. Behind the electrical wall plate i have a ground wire, black and white but on my oven i have a red, black, green, and a white . My question is, which one goes with what? I know that the green goes to ground, and the black goes to black, but where does the white and red ones go?

New homes now require all four wires, or a dedicated neutral.
