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?
Thanks- Robert.

Hi Robert - Great Electrical Repair Question!
Most new ovens will allow you to bond their ground and neutral (white) wires together when installing into an existing older home.
New homes now require all four wires, or a dedicated neutral.
