Kitchen Range Circuit and 3-Wire Connections
[ad#block]Electrical Question: I recently purchased a new electric range with a digital control.
- The instructions allow for a 3wire or 4wire connection.
- I am using the three wire connection from my original cord.
- The digital control will not work.
- I now have a second stove because I thought the first one was defective, but that was not correct.
- The new stove has the same symptom.
- Why will the three wire cord connection not work with the digital control?
This electrical wiring question came from: Bob, an Electrician in Florida.
Thanks for your electrical wiring question Bob.
