Questiongeek squad came to install my electric range and brought 4 prong cord but they said it can't be installed because it had 4 prong 50 amp dryer receptacle. I'm very confused because the smart choice they brought even says range or dryer cord.
- Answer I have run in to that before. They look similar it's the amps that makes the deference. If it says both range and dryer that's fine. However a dryer only needs 30 amps a range needs 50 amps so if it says for both it should work if it,s only dryer you would fry the range.

- Answer I would say buy a longer cord but really you're better off getting an electrician to move the outlet closer
- Answer No, ranges cannot be plugged into 110 volt outlets.

- Answer Range circuit is 40 amp minimum, requiring 8 AWG wire. The plug/outlet prong configuration depends on your local grounding code. What does the old range have? Use that, but with a new cord. Don't forget to upgrade your circuit breaker, if necessary. (Some older houses had a 30 amp range circuit, with matching CB.)
- Answer Chuck means which is hot, neutral and ground. In the case of 3 prong range cords, The real answer is, these ranges dont have neutral on 3 prongs. the middle wire is the ground. the other 2 are interchangable since both are hot wires. wire the middle one first, then wire the other two to either remaining available spots to wire it to. Once all 3 is wired, you are good to go.
- Answer Two different currents. If you hook up a 110V appliance to an active 220V outlet - you run the risk of much more than destroying your appliance. Either rewire the 220V outlet and wall plug to 110V or plug your appliance into another outlet.
