Customer Question

Customer: We just installed a new oven, and the installer said that there is only one leg of electric current. The ovens do not heat. Could this be the breaker?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The oven is on a separate 220 V circuit
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Electrical Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Sure, I have to leave but will be back in a few hours.
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

You'll need to open the junction box where it's connected, tell me how many and what color are the house wires. I'll then tell you what to test.
