Hi,
Moving next week and i have agreed to dump the very old gas cooker for new owner .....

one question before i do so, i suspect the current connection is not up to date anyway to modern standards as the cooker is ancient, but before i disconnect can some of you see photo attached and advise? do i remove black pipe from metal wall connection?

just want to do it safely..

thanks in advance!

You need someone who is gas safe registered and qualified to work on gas appliances to do this job legally and safely.

OK

I stupidly thought you could disconnect an oven yourself

....i was doing him favour as he didnt want the oven, i may just try leave it in that case as i do not want to pay for gas engineer for an oven i am dumping

It's a bayonet fitting you can perfectly legally disconnect it yourself just grab the brass ring lift, twist and pull it out.

It's supposed to self seal but you might wanna check with soapy water

Good choice, just because it's legal doesn't always mean you should :thumbright:

Apologies for giving incorrect advice :oops:
Is just the installation of a cooker that's deemed illegal to do yourself then razor? Even on a bayonet?
I was under the impression it had to be tested and certified,even(incorrectly) if disconnected.

No worries Steve it was well intentioned

The gas regs specifically allow for non gas muppets to remove self sealing connectors and bayonets. It's a favourite ACS exam question and isn't counted as 'work' on the gas :wink:

It is quick connection plugin fitting. It is safe to plug it out on your own. If you are not familiarized with that maybe is better leave to new specialist, You could also pay for service and when new tehnat move in they will use service you paid. You can use removed Mod 2. they are cheap and fast.

For something as rare as moving a gas cooker I would always get someone in, while I trust myself on electrics, gas scares me and rightly so I think.

That connector needs a push up and a twist. You may need to remove it when the sausages fall down the back or if (in my case) the electric oven needs a repair (to which I chickened out).
