220v wiring confusion

I'm wiring an induction cooktop. My house wiring has red, black and white (no bare wire). The cooktop has red black and green. I'm confused about what to do with the white on the house side and the green on the cooktop side.

I would appreciate help on this.

Welcome to the forums.

I've moved your thread to our electrical forum.

What kind of cable is this.... NM type like romex ? If yes there should be a bare ground in the cable..... or is it metal clad.... like BX ?

Welcome to the forums!

How is the house wired? It is using a metallic wiring method? (EMT, Flexible metal conduit, etc) If not your new cook top does not require a neutral and you could re-identify the white as a ground using green tape.

The wiring has flexible metal conduit. Attached are pictures of house and cooktop wires.
