replacing an electric range
If the wall outlet matches the new range's cord plug... sure. Unfortunately (for some) most newer ranges come with a 4 prong plug and many older ones used only a 3 prong. In that case a new 4 lead (3 + ground) branch circuit may need to be installed from the house fuse/breaker panel and an appropriate wall outlet installed.
BTW. It is now the law in most areas that ranges must have 'anti-tip' brackets installed for them. They come with the new range and are not that difficult to mount but will need to be done when replacing an older range.

Sorry but I don't recall where that image was uploaded to. Maybe you could look for the other message which had it and link to that message?
