Wiring a new wall oven that has 3 wires to the homes 4 wire


We are planning to put in a new Haier 24” True Convection Single Electric Wall Oven (Right hand) model HCW225RAES for my mom, and noticed that the new oven only has 3 wires. Her home has 4 wires coming from the wall. (Black, Red, White and Ground). I called Haier and was told that we needed to hire an electrician to put this oven in, as the oven doesn’t come with a ground. I thought that this was crazy. Am I? Any suggestions would be helpful, as we haven’t been able to find much information on the world wide web! Thanks!

  1. Most of the time and in your case the ground is the metal frame of the oven. See the picture on this page
