It is easiest if the gas line and the electrical outlet are already set up in your home. At that point, it is easy to set up the appliance.

When hooking up a new or used gas appliance it is required that you use a new gas line. I always try to use a flexible line and make sure it is extra long so the appliance can be moved in and out. Shut the gas off at the valve and remove old gas line and replace with a new one. They do have different sizes, so you can take the old one to your nearest Home Depot type store to ensure the correct size. They also have the needed fittings to do most jobs,always use thread compound on the joints and check for gas leaks when done with soapy water..Good Luck.

Consult with a legally licensed gas fitter/plumber. If you do it and something goes awry you will not be covered by your home insurance and you really don't want it to happen now do you. Best it be legal and done rite...

What causes a gas oven to not ignite?

Overtime the glow coil get weakened and doesn't send the amperage back to the gas valve to open up and release. Assuming you're on natural gas it takes 1200 degrees for natural gas to ignite so if the oven ignitor doesn't get hot enough, the current is too weak for the gas valve to open as a safty feature so the appliance doesn't pour gas into your house. Otherwise you would have a bad main control or thermostat not causing that system to start.
