How do you connect wire to a breaker?

If you are connecting 120 volts, you connect the black wire to the breaker, white wire to the neutral bar, and ground wire to the ground bar. If you are connecting 240 volts connect the black & white wires to the breaker, & ground wire to the ground bar.

How do you wire a 4 wire 110V appliance to a 3 wire wall plug?

Why does a light turn when you place black to black and white to ground wire?

You don't say "turn off" or turn on". Light should be connected black to black and white to white and ground to ground. If you connect white to ground it will work, but you are then using the ground wire for an unintended purpose. Neutral is bonded to Ground at the panel. Current on ground wire could cause ground loops and may cause GFCI to trip if you have them in your house.

How to wire an appliance that has black white red and green wires?

It is most likely that the appliance is 220-240 Volts. Check the rating plate. If so you need to connect to that type of service and to a breaker that will handle the load. The 220-240 Volts is connected between Red and Black, White is neutral and provides 110-120 Volts between it and Red or Black. The Green is the ground.

Can you connect 2 wire to 3 wire house has black white red and ground Appliance has black white and ground?

It seems like you are describing the Red, Black, White and Ground in your electric panel. There is 240 VAC between Black and Red and 120 VAC between Black and White and 120 VAC between Red and White. The electric panel has two busses that supply 120 VAC on alternating breakers in your panel. Essentially, the Red turns into "black" in the panel for all practical purposes. If you have a 240 VAC circuit it essentially takes up to two vertical positions in your electric panel.

How do you connect the wires if you are installing a new oven that has 4 wires which are red black white and green and the old oven has 3 wires which are black white and bare copper?

How do you connect a 240 v cooktop with 4 wires to a service panel with 3 wires?

The new cooktop has a 4 wire connection. Red & Black are hot. White is neutral, and green is ground. You existing panel is wired with 3 wires. Black & Red are hot and green is ground. There is no neutral wire. Connect the black to black, red to red, and then connect the white and ground together at the plug.

How can you hook up the 3 wires 230V 1 phase?

US NEC Usage: There should be four wires, red, black, white, and bare copper/ground. Depending on application, white might be missing. Red and black are hot, 115V to neutral, 230V between each other, white is neutral, and bare is ground which is also tied to neutral at the distribution panel. If you are connecting a true 230V load, you would use red, black, and ground, connecting red and black to the two "marked" or colored terminals, and ground to the green terminal as well as to the box. If you are connecting a split 115V/230V load, such as a range or dryer in a non mobile-home environment, you would connect red and black as stated, connect white to the neutral/ground pin, and connect ground to the box. Neutral and ground will also need to be connected within the appliance. In a split 115V/230V load, in a mobile home environment, you must keep all four conductors distinct, using a four wire box, so that appliance ground is maintained separately all the way back to the distribution box.
