Question and Answers

Q:

kenmore elite 30" standing electric. three prong 50A plug I have red and black wired to the block, neutral to the chassi. grounding strap removed. correct?

A:

I assume that you are attempting to wire it as shown in the image below from the installation guide. This is the only proper way to wire the 3-prong power cord. If it is tripping the breaker when it is wired in this manner than you have a short in the circuit of the supply wiring. I do not recommend that you attempt to connect the neutral wire to the chassis instead of the terminal block as shown below. I recommend that you have a service technician or electrician examine the range and the power supply to diagnose the problem. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

presto cooker need a cord to make it work

A:

Here is the a link for the owner's manual on the cooker that you seem to be describing: Presto Kitchen Kettle Multi-Cooker Owner's Manual . That link that Marc H. posted in the above response has the cord (Stock Number 09984) that you will probably need for that cooker. You can call Presto at 1-800-877-0441 to make sure that is the cord that you need and to order it if necessary. You should also be able to order that part from the link that Marc H. provided.

If you need more help, let us know.

Q:

Kenmore model 790.98023802 circuit requirement

A:

National and local electrical codes normally dictate the size of the breaker that should protect the range based on the kilowatt rating plate that is on the base of the range. Since you have an existing outlet that is protected by a 40A breaker, I assume that it was installed in compliance with the local and national codes. The outlet should also be wired with 8 gauge copper wire. This is fairly standard for a 240 volt range outlet unless the home is over 30 years old.

Since you have the lower rated breaker 40A, it is actually safer than protecting the range with a 50A breaker. I assume that you are plugging the range into an existing outlet. You should be able to use the existing outlet with the 40A breaker for this range based on the above assumptions. The 40A breaker will not normally trip even if the oven and all burners are used at the same time. If the breaker does begin tripping under normal use, I recommend that you call an electrician and have the circuit checked and the breaker replaced with a 50A size (or rewired to comply with electrical codes). If you are still unsure about using the existing outlet, I recommend that you contact an electrician in your local area to check the rating on the range and determine whether the outlet will work.
