Wiring Diagram for a Stove Plug

Please keep in mind, this is for a 4 wire cord and outlet for a stove / oven.

This is very easy to do but yes it can seem very intimidating. You just came home with the new stove your wife has been looking forward to. You go and pull the old stove out and to your surprise you fine the stove was hard wired. First thing you need to do.

1) Don’t move the stove anymore. Old wires can break while the power is still on.

2) Now turn the power off at the breaker panel if you didn’t do so yet. Test and make sure you really did turn the right breaker off.

3) Now that the power is off remove the wire from the stove / oven.

4) OK, so now you want to start mounting your new 50 amp outlet to the wall. Make sure you will be mounting it low enough so that the stove / oven can be pushed up to the wall.

You will want to cut back the wire so you don’t have a ton of wire hanging out. Now it’s either you will be using a surface mount or a recessed box with a outlet. See the below pictures.

Remember the green wire, GROUND is the most important wire. Why because it protects your life.

Most newer stoves with ovens require a 50 amp service. So you will really need to make sure if your stove with oven requires 50 amp or not. And make you have a 50 amp wire and a 50 amp breaker. Now I’m not saying it wont work if you don’t but once you’re cooking that Thanksgiving turkey and all the good stuff on the stovetop with all your quest coming cover in a hour or so that’s when your the problems begin.
