I have a new GE cooktop which has a red, black, and ground

Customer Question

I have a new GE cooktop which has a red, black, and green ground wire. The electrical connection in the wall has a red, black, bare copper ground, and white wire. My plan is to connect red to red, black to black, and the green ground wire to bare copper ground wire and cap the white wire in the wall connection, will this work ?

Yes, that's what you need to do.

The circuit from the house includes a neutral (white) wire, but the new appliance doesn't need it.

In these cases, we simply cap it off in a wire nut by itself.
