How do you connect the wires if you are installing a new oven that has 4 wires which are red black white and green and the old oven has 3 wires which are black white and bare copper?

Your old wiring has 2 "hot" wires and a ground. Your new appliance needs 2 "hot" wires, a Neutral, and a ground. Please consult an electrician.
