Stand alone oven replace. Stovetop separate (later). Old stove was hard wired with home power wires.
Thanks for reviewing. I have a new oven unit, just an oven,no stove top range. The stove top range is separate on the kitchen counter. My question is:
The old stove – the home power supply was wired directly into the stove (Magic Chef) via clips into a circuit board on the stove. I removed the home supply power wires – black, red, beige almost yellow (not white), and a bare hard copper line, which was grounded to the unit. I assume the beige is neutral.
The new oven comes with the black, red, green 3 wire all insulated together, not attached to the oven yet. Just bare wire clipped at each end..
Do I need to install a outlet now, or is there some reason I cannot just wire the home power supply to the oven power chord with wire connectors? Black to black, red to red, beige to green. And the other end of the oven power chord into the back of the oven?
Thank you so much for reviewing.
