Connection can only be made to a suitable gas point. This requires a bayonet fitting on a fixed pipe approximately 75cm from the ground (ensure this is securely anchored/strapped to the wall). The engineer will supply a flexible hose for connecting the range together with safety chain or stability bracket as required.
If you have ordered a connection service with your range, please note that the manufacturer's engineer will NOT be able to undertake extra pipe work
to meet the required standard. If in doubt, book a local Gas Safe engineer
to carry out an assessment and do any necessary work prior to installation.
Although bayonet fittings are temptingly simple to connect to, the risks are obvious and you should get this done by a competent or qualified person who can carry out the necessary pressure tests and deal with any leaks.
- In most cases this requires connection via a 6mm heat resistant flex to a 32Amp double pole switch (consult the product manual for your cooker). The switch must be easily accessible, and all must conform to regulations or the installation may fail and no refund can be made. This high current can kill you instantly, so always consult an expert if in doubt.
- Usually only a suitably positioned 13 Amp electrical socket is required. A 13A plug will already be fitted to the range.
