1) How do I properly run 120V wire through a single stud? Seen it done elsewhere in the home but I've learned not to trust how things were done around here.

2) How do I connect a four wire oven (red,black, white, green) to the three 220V wires coming out of the wall (black, white, bare).

Thanks.

1. Assuming you are using NM type cable, thru a hole bored in the center of the stud, usually 3/4 or 7/8 in diameter.

2. If the oven requires a 4 wire setup, then you must run new (4)wires to the oven from your panel. Check the instructions to determine your wiring options.

Should I place a metal bracket over the stud to protect against someone driving a nail through it in the future?

The only time you are required to use the metal plates is when the wire is less than 1.25in away from the surface of the stud. That doesn't mean you can't use them everywhere, but that can get expensive. I do like to use them in kitchens since cabinet installers are notorious for using long screws.

What is the junction box grounded to?

If the oven requires a separate ground and neutral, and some digital models do, you must run 4 new wires from the panel to the oven.
