Oven Wiring

Hello: I am swapping out ovens. When I removed the old oven I found the red wire wired to the black and the black wire wired to the red.

I anticipated red to red and black to black.

What is the significance of that wiring?

In this case it makes not difference. The red and black wires are the same in this case.

It shouldn't matter since each wire is supplying 120v.

Hang in there and someone can back my statement up, or call me out....

Eeeek, Joed beat me, but at least I didn't make a fool out of myself.
