INSTALLING GAS LINE FOR A STOVE
The first thing we do is prepare your gas line for a stove. Preparing lines for a new stove ensures your fittings are up to code, and any damage that may have happened to the lines won’t interfere with the appliance installation. Depending on the current installation, a gas appliance shutoff valve may be needed to install before prepping the remainder of the line.
HOW TO HOOK UP A GAS STOVE
Licensed gasfitters will shut off the gas cock – the gas is off when the lever is at a right angle to the pipe. Most shutoffs are located behind the range, and sometimes in the basement just below. A shutoff is required in the line to the range and should be added if not yet installed. Professionals in this field should be able to tell you more about adding a shutoff.

It can be determined by the inside diameter of the tube utilized in a gas installation, otherwise noted on the package. The length of the connector should be considered to get enough room to work in between the stove and the wall. It is important also not to force or kink any type of connections or keep them far from sharp edges to avoid it from damaging, particularly when making use of braided hoses. Gasfitters must always inspect their work for leaks using a gas leak detector or any other approved technique.
