Leaving your gas line for a cooker is essential when installing a gas stove for the first time or replacing your current gas stove. Leaving your lines for a replacement stove ensures your fittings are up to code, and any harm which might have occurred to the lines will not interfere with the appliance setup. Based on your current setup, you might have to install a gas appliance shutoff valve prior to prepping the remainder of your line.

Put your gas supply line for the cooker in the “Off” position. Alternatively, if you do not have a appliance shutoff valve, turn off the gas in the main supply near the meter. Rotate the shutoff valve till it stays perpendicular to the gas line, utilizing an adjustable wrench. Contact your gas service supplier for any regulations concerning turning off the main gas supply to your property. Install a appliance shutoff valve if one isn’t installed.

Clean the threads on your own gas pipe, then using a small wire brush. Wipe the threads with a soft cloth.

Wrap the threads in three wraps of gas line thread seal tape. Twist a gas appliance valve on the gas pipe. Tighten the valve into the pipe, using an adjustable wrench.

Connect a union flare fitting into the appliance valve by wrapping the straight pipe threads in three seams of petrol line thread seal tape. Ensure the flare fitting points from the gas valve. Expand the fitting to the valve. Put one adjustable wrench on the valve to stabilize it and another on the union flare fitting. Tighten the flair fitting in the valve.

Twist one end of a flexible gas supply line to the union flare fitting. Don’t wrap the threads in thread seal tape. Use both wrenches to tighten the flexible line on the fitting.

Attach another union cemented matching to the opposite end of the flexible line. Don’t use thread seal tape. Tighten the fitting into the line, using the wrenches.

Wrap the exposed threads to the union flare fitting with three wraps of petrol line thread seal tape. Twist the gas pressure regulator on the fitting. Tighten it, using the 2 wrenches.

Apply a liberal quantity of gas leak detection solution to each gas link. Turn on the gas and fast search for any bubbles across the connections. Switch off the gas and tighten the fittings if bubbles appear. Permit the gas to dissipate for at least 10 minutes prior to making your final link to the stove and turning on the gas.
