I want to replace my old electric cooktop with a new electric cooktop. The new cooktop is 208/240V. It has 3 threaded wires: red, black, and green.
The metal junction box is 4-wire grounded. It has red, black, white wires and a bare wire grounded to a screw in the box.
Looking at my circuit breaker, the circuit running to this junction box is 120/240V.
Is this something I, not an electrician, can do? If so, is this the proper way to connect:
- Red to Red
- Black to Black
- Green (from appliance) grounded to the same screw as the bare wire (from the circuit)
- Cap off the white wire (from circuit)
