ok, just got a new stove, pulled old stove out to find a direct wire
stove. house was built in 1980. ok cut the power and opend the
junction box at the stove . this is where it gets interesting.
house has 3 way but the stove was 4 way and is wired like the
black-with red strip (hot)
and stranded alumium ground I guess
so on stove hooked up to house
black to black
red to red
white to aluminum
ground to aluminum.
so what options do I have for installing it. I read the other forum
topic on this but I'm confused on the multistranded aluminum.
rewiring it is impossible as we have very low roof line and getting
to the wires out of the fuse box in attic is zero unless your a 5 year
old in size.
do I uncoonnect the 4 way wiring from the old stove and hook it up as
4 way on the new stove or go get a 3way wall socket for range and 3
the stove has a 50amp fuse breaker.
thanks in advance.
