Wall oven electric wiring

Posted by fezz (My Page) on

My problem is that my stove doesn't work. Selector light lights but temp light not working (light good)
I was moving the breakers because one of the breakers was not very firm or tight in the box but I might not have replaced them in the right location.
Electric stove hard wired to breaker.
My Breaker box has 3 breakers. Input to box is White to ground block, Red, & Black plus ground wire to panel box. 2 breakers are 25 amps. 1 breaker is 15 Amp. Currently both 25 amp breakers are on black side, 15 amp on red side. I get 120v from each breaker terminal with terminal to ground, 0v from the 2 - 25 amp breaker terminal to terminal.
Wires from stove are White, Black, Red, and blue. My questions are (1) What location should the breakers be in the box, and (2) Which wires should go to each breaker?

Did things work before you started messing with the panel?
