    hey im just going over the forum for info on wiring up an oven. i going to be using a regular house oven (GE Appliances) and on the wire there are 4 wires.Red,White,Black and a thin plane that i think is ground. i have it hooked up to a plug so i didn't have to keep it connected when im not using it. my thing it come on and all but i only have the thin wire for the ground, the W and B for the powers. Is there a certain was thing should be hooked up. I turned it on and I started smelling a sent like wire in the top of the over where starting to burn . well if anybody could help me out with this it would be of grate help.

    take's a bit but I wanted to keep it under 30 amp. It has an industrial
    temp control that would cost a mint except a buddy at work wired it up
    with used part we had laying around.
    Hope this help's,

    What did you use to insulate the walls? I need to build a bigger oven so I can do Harley Frames since that is where the big $$$ are down here in Fl

    would Two elements be enough for an oven that big?

    Do you want each element to see 220V?
    I'll give you paralell because it's easier to add elements at any time.
    However you go it's like this-- Thermostat or Temperature controller
    is wired 110V and trips a relay that isolates
    the 220V. The elements are wired white
    and black to relay.White on one end and
    black on the other.The neutral isn't used on
    heating elements.The controller can get its
    power from the neutral and one of the 220V
    lines, either black or white.But not both!
    For paralell you simply connect another
    element to the first like jump starting a car.
    White to white and black to black.
    Wayne when I get a free second I'll draw it and email it to you.
