Re: can I replace my own gas oven?

I would also recommend buying the stove before you buy the new fitting and flexible metal hose. The shut-offs and hoses at the home stores are labeled for dryer, standard stove, high output stove, etc., but that designation is not an exact science. Its easy to get one that does not fit.

I've gone through this twice (new range and new dryer) in the last few months because I added new appliances and replaced existing hard pipe connections. I made an extra trip to the store because I did not bring the appliance manual with me and make sure I got the right type and size of gas line connector for the appliance. For the dryer I also looked at the 3/4" pipe I could see above the dryer, but failed to look behind it and notice the adapter that necked it down to 1/2" before the final connection.
