I am installing new flooring in my kitchen and need to move my stove. I am fairly confident I can disconnect the gas line and turn off the gas feed. What I am less confident about is re-installing it. Is there a special sealant I need to use when I reattach the lines? I there anything I need to know about reattaching the lines? I am not changing anything on the current setup.

Oil Only

HiYIcrazy

If your going to only disconnect the connector from the shutoff valve, then the only tips I can offer is to:

#1
Turn off the valve FIRST!
#2
Remove the connector. <Use an adjustable crescent type wrench>
#3
Hold the connector in one hand and do not allow it to twist while your turning the connector nut.
#4
When your going to reinstall it, apply a light weight OIL the threads only. <3 in 1 oil is fine> Do not use pipe tape!
#5
Soap test the connection before pushing the stove in place. If you have any leaks, the soap will form bubbles. They may be really tiny but will be visable after a few minutes. Check totally around the connection before considering the job done.
