So, you can take a ground wire and attach it to the box using a self-tapping screw. This will provide your ground and you can then attach it to the receptacle.
If your system was supplied by a conduit just attaching a ground to the box may not do. Sometimes the conduit does not have continuity, meaning there is a break in the pipe fittings. About the only way to check this for you would be to check for power with a meter. You should have 220V between the insulated wires and 110V between each insulated wire and the ground.
If in any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.AddendumIf you are fortunate enough to have conduit or old BX (steel sheathed wire) look into pulling new wire. If you only have 2 wires in the box, you may not be able to get a good neutral or ground connection to your appliance. You must have a good ground connection, and if you want this for a 220/110V appliance you need a good neutral connection. Without a good neutral you will burn up the 110V loads in the appliance. If you only have two wires, use them only if you absolutely cannot run something new. If you can run new wire, try to run four conductors instead of 3. This will allow you to install a more versatile 4 wire plug. For ovens and dryers old 3-wire plugs no longer meet the wiring codes for new work.
IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB
SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY
REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.
If you do this work yourself, always turn off the power
at the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work
always use an electricians test meter having metal-tipped probes
(not a simple proximity voltage indicator)
to insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.
You still need a circuit breaker. From your question it appears your stove is hardwired to the panel. It is perfectly acceptable to connect it to a suitably specified outlet and plug for the voltage and amperes for the stove. Basically you would turn off the breaker, install an outlet on the floor or wall so as not to interfere with stove. You can buy cords with the proper plugs and mating receptacles in most any hardware store. For an electric stove with an oven you are usually talking about a 50A breaker and the corresponding outlet and plug. This can be dangerous and if you are not sure of what you are doing an electrician is highly recommended.
The 4 prong stove outlet has 3 straight blades and a ground, and is rated for 50 amps. A dryer outlet has 2 straight blades for the hot conductors, and an L shaped blade for the neutral conductor, and a ground. The dryer outlet is only rated for 30 amps. A dryer male plug will not fit into a stove outlet, nor will a stove male plug with a dryer outlet. Note that although the stove plug is rated for 50 amps, the stove circuit is typically protected (fused) at 40 amps.
Could be the outlet, could be an open wire, could be a loose connection. First thing I would do is check that the connections are tight. Then replace the outlet. That leaves the wiring... The connection is probably corroded. Check the plug, if it's black and pitted you probably should replace both the plug and outlet.
Some stoves do. It really depends on the kind of stove. The stove I use at home uses propane gas, so in this particular case, the answer is "no". But if your stove needs to be plugged into an electrical outlet in order to work, then the answer (for that particular stove) is "yes". Other stoves may use firewood.
You can either hard wire the new one or install an outlet for the plug. It the wiring was done correctly on the old one, you should have a Black, Red and either white or a bare wire. Red and Black are power and white or bare is ground. Ask for a Range Outlet, they are different than a Dryer Outlet. Turn the power of first of course.
