  • Gas stove- appliance shut off accessible ???????

    This has always been a joke to Me. The Lil lady is going to pull out the wolf range
    oven in an emergency ? When I can ,I locate them in the next cabinet. I have a slab
    home ,elec. conversion,gas piping coming in outside wall. New stove , has warming draw on bottom, can't use that for valve access,and is tight to outside wall where My supply comes in!

    sounds like you're thinking ahead.

    but remember that a gas flex can't penetrate a wall. only for exposed locations.

    so as long as you pipe the gas into the next cabinet, install a shut off valve and then pipe it back to behind the proper cabinet location, then connect with a flex and flex adapters.

    i wouldn't be too concerned, as a gas dryer has the same issue, especially on a stacking unit. although, my stacking washer and dryer have accessible water and gas shut offs. and i do shut the water when done.

      Thanks Rick. As I typed, the loop with valve in cabinet, came to Me. I would never run flex through anything.

        Not only are you on the right track, but many inspectors would not buy a valve behind or even under a range. Cabinet valve and rigid pipe to behind the range is the way to go.

        We have even used an empty ox box w/a 1" ball valve for larger ranges.
