How to Run a Gas Pipe to a New Gas Oven


If you are installing a new gas oven in your kitchen, you must use a gas appliance connector or gas pipe to connect the gas supply to the oven. It's important to know where the gas supply shut-off valve is located in your home; and if you don't have a valve installed, you should contact a professional to install a gas line into your kitchen. The parts for installing the gas pipe can be purchased from any home improvement store.

Things You'll Need

  • Wire brush
  • Pipe thread sealant
  • Excess flow valve
  • Adjustable wrench
  • Gas pipe
  • Brass elbow
  • Locate the area in your kitchen where you want to install the gas pipe and oven. There should be a gas valve in the kitchen, which is typically located near the refrigerator.

  • Turn the handle of the gas shut-off valve to the "Off" position then clean any excess threads or tape from the gas shut-off valve with a wire brush.

  • Apply pipe thread sealant to the pipe threads of the excess flow valve part then screw the excess flow valve into the top of the gas shut-off valve by hand.

  • Tighten the two valves with an adjustable wrench then connect the copper gas pipe to the excess flow valve. Tighten the connector with the adjustable wrench once it's connected.

  • Connect the other end of the gas pipe to a brass elbow and tighten the pipe to the elbow with the flange nut on the end of the pipe.

  • Attach the brass elbow to the gas valve on the bottom rear end of the gas oven. Tighten the brass elbow to the gas valve.

  • Turn the gas shut-off valve to the "On" position then move the gas oven against the wall.
