I suspect you have a wire that contains a red,black,white, and bare.

You should be using a 50 amp rated range receptacle with four prongs.

The white goes in the middle the red and black go to the outside and the bare goes to the green screw.

Do not install a three prong range plug on a wire that has four wires in the cable.

Good Luck
