I have an old Frigidaire oven and an older mobile home. My oven came with 3 prog plugs but the outlet is 4 prong. RED/WHITE/GREEN/BLACK and RED/WHITE/BLACK.

Is it as simple as red to red, black to black and white to white? I'm confused and cant seem to find much on 4 wired outlets and 3 wired appliances.

So after a lot of reading I decided to try red to red, white to white and black to black. I removed the copper jumper wire from the white terminal and grounded the green wire to the frame of the oven instead.

Problem solved! I got to have pizza for the first time in my new place.

I hope someone else can find this tread useful.
