220 oven wiring

I recently bought a used stove to replace an old one. When I removed the old one I foung them to be hard wired. The new one has a 3 prong plug on it.
So I bought an appropriate receptacle but found the wall wires were different than the oven wires. There was one solid black, one black with a purple dashed line, and a braided silver wire (uninsulated). The range plug has a black, red and white lead. I assumed that the black with the purple stripe from the wall was the white. Is this an incorrect assumption? After I hooked everything up and turned the main breaker back on to test the range I found that the burners took a very long time to heat up and the digital display blinked on for a short period then went out and would not come back on again. Also the light inside the oven came on once when I flipped the switch but went out immediately and would not come back on again. Have I wired it incorrectly? Should I switch the black and black striped wires? Could I have caused permanent damage to the digital display electronics? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, BigTufTer

The white from the range should be connected to the silver braided wire. The black and blackw purple connnect to the black and red fromthe range.

any luck?

Hi Bigturfer,

Any luck with your stove? I am curious and I am doing the same thing.
Although rather than creating a plug, I am hooking it up directly to the stove.

Good and Bad Luck

I did get the stove burners running but apparently a sensor was burned out and the oven won't run. The dude is ordering a new one. I created a female plug because the oven already had a male plug on it. It seemed simple enough. Thanks guys.
