As the links in post #16 defines.

Ranges installed as plug-in's as the instructions state, when allowed by local codes, is an option.

People keep saying what is legal or illegal without citing laws. I believe the Florida Building Code is where I should be looking?

And you should have a permit, because, " well, somebody on the internet said this," is not a legal defense.

We do not know which NEC Florida is using, and amended.

You are correct , the 3 prong outlet is no longer legal . Must be 4 prong , with 2 " hots " , 1 neutral and an earth ground .
