Help wiring a stove top

I need help wiring a Jenn air range top I purchased today.

My house wires are the basic black and white with a ground lead.

The range top has the ground, a white wire, a black wire, and a red wire. Plus no instructions on how to wire!!

The load and circuits are okay as I'm replacing an older model Jenn air.

Any help on how I connect the range white, red, and black wires to the house wires will be appreciated.

Go back to where you bought it and demand the installation instructions. They should show you two different ways to wire it -- one for four-wire service and one for three-wire service. The instructions should tell you whether it is acceptable to connect it to three-wire service, and how to do it. There will be a ground strap involved between the neutral and the chassis. It would be easy for me to tell you how to do it, but I wouldn't want to unless the JennAir people approve of this installation.
