My oven recently retired and I have sadly purchased a new one. My old oven did not plug into an outlet. I'm wondering if I can wire the new one directly, the same way the old one was wired? Can this be done easily (can i handle the job)? If not, do i call an electrician or an appliance person for the job and about how much will this cost? Sorry to bombard everyone with so many questions...I just don't want to blow up my apartment!

Yes you can wire the new one how the old was wired as long as it facilitates this. I think most of the new ones come with plugs now, but you may be able to remove the plug and "hard wire" it. A plug installed into a 240VAC receptacle makes for easier cleaning, if you ever wanted to pull the range out and mop behind it.
