How to Connect your Electric Oven or Gas Cooker

To have a gas cooker connected:

The most important thing to consider before embarking on connecting your gas cooker is that it must be installed by a Gas Safe registered engineer who will provide the necessary certification.

Most suppliers will fit your new oven for a charge (roughly £85-£100) and remove and recycle the old oven (approx. £15) if you want them to.

Before they deliver, you will need to check you have a live gas supply within 1.5 metres of where you want the oven placed.

If your new appliance has dual fuel, i.e. an electric oven cavity with a gas hob, you will need to check you have an electrical connection within 1.5 metres.

Check there is clear access and enough space around the cooker site for ventilation.

Make sure the area behind the cooker has no power points, switches, boilers, alarm sensors or flammable material, such as wallpaper, wall fabric, curtains, wood or shelving.
