Disconnecting/Reconnecting Gas Range


We are having a new countertop installed, and have to disconnect and then reconnect our Gas Range ourselves. It is a new (1yr old home), and we do have a shut-off valve behind it. The tubing appears to be copper (or at least copper colored), and is connected with hex connection to the wall stub. Will we have any problem reconnecting this after the work is done? I have worked with metal tubing before on a sink and refrigerator, and have always found it very difficult to work with, having to be replaced sometimes...

Sounds like this is a situation where you need to turn off gas at meter, remove the range & the copper. Install a line valve at the wall stub & reconnect the range with a flex connector. If you are not comfortable doing this a plumber should be used. Don't forget to leak check with soap solution.
