I wired my four wire range (red,black,white,green) to an unused existing 3 wire(red,black,white)dryer feed on a 40 amp breaker. The dryer feed does not have a ground wire. I connected the stove's green wire to the metal junction box I used to splice the dryer feed to the 10-3 wire I ran from the stove. After I made the connection and turned on the breaker, the circuit tripped, immediately.

Hooray! I did not destroy my range. Turns out, when I clamped the wire to the metal outlet box, I tightened it too much and penetrated the insulation, thus shorting out the circuit.
