The first thing to do when installing an electric stove outlet is to figure out the space your stove will be occupied in. Then look at the back of the stove. There is an opening from the floor several inches up. Measure that opening and then transfer that measurement to the wall. You will want to keep your stove outlet within the opening space on the stove but favor the top marking. Don’t use an old workbox. Instead try to use a nail-on 2 gang box because it will be better secured when installing the 50 amp receptacle and pushing the wires and the outlet into the box Above all, don’t install the stove outlet box too close to the floor. This will cause a problem when you try to plug in the plug cord later on.
Measure from the top of the plug to where the cord starts to 90 and use that as a guide.When installing the 50 amp stove receptacle make sure you install the outlet with the ground facing up. This will allow the plug cord to run straight down to the floor with no twist or kinks.
Installing an electric stove outlet
When installing the 50 amp plug cord use an eyelet connector to connect the cord to the stove housing. After installing the 50 amp cord to the stove housing you will find a terminal block with 3 wires on it. A red, black, and white with a grounding strap connected to it. The first thing you want to do is remove the grounding strap from the white neutral wire as it is no longer code compliant. Now with your plug cord connect the black wire to the black wire on the terminal block. Then connect the white wire from the plug cord to the white wire on the stove terminal block. Connect the red wire to the red on the terminal block. And connect the green wire to the grounding strap terminal on the stove.
Install the stove housing cover and you are now done with your stove plug cord installation.
