Gas Cooker Disconnection

If you are considering buying or have recently purchased a new gas cooker you will need your old appliance disconnected before it can be replaced. The disconnection of your old appliance should ideally be done before your new cooker arrives, ready for your gas cooker installation.

A gas cooker disconnection can be seriously dangerous if not done properly. After disconnecting a gas cooker the connector should always be sealed off properly. In most cases this will be a bayonet connector and will be self-sealant. It is advised you check your connector before disconnecting a gas cooker, if you discover it is not self-sealant you should get a qualified gas cooker disconnection specialist to complete this. In order for this to be done safely and correctly you should have a Gas Safe Registered engineer do this for you.

If you have previously had an electric cooker and are changing to a gas cooker, then the appliance should just be removed from the power mains and put aside out of the way ready for your gas cooker installation.

Gas cookers can be purchased from a variety of places from major high street retailers, online stores, auctions etc. Some retailers will offer to complete your gas cooker installation for an added cost as part of their service. However, most request that you organise to have a Gas Safe engineer come and complete your gas cooker disconnection and installation yourself.
