    My range came with a 3/4" gas line for the cooktop. The manual states it is
    1/2" . It even comes with a plastic bag taped to the gas line with a 1/2"
    90 degree street elbow inside with instructions that say to use it on the pipe ?
    there is very limited access on the back of this range and it is impossible to use any 3/4" fittings on this range with out removing one of the cooling fans. I do not believe I would be able to reinstall the fan after the fittings would be installed.I can not get a answer from anyone about why it does not have a 1/2" pipe like the manual states. For the money I paid for this range I feel I should not have to relocate cooling fans to hook up a gas line. Does anyone else have this problem or is my range the only one like this?

The manual says the pipe of the internal gas line is 1/2 and the external line 3/4 flex gas line :
Use 3/4" flex line to connect between the gas supply and the appliance manifold
pipe, which exits the upper rear of the appliance on 30” and 36” ranges. The appliance manifold pipe connection is 1/2" NPT. Use caution to avoid crimping the 3/4" flex line when making bends.
Suggested length of flex line is 48";gas pipe manifold pipe size is 3/4

Use 3/4" flex line to connect between the gas
supply and the appliance manifold pipe.

i did download an installation manual, didnt have your model but checked a few and seemed to be the same. asking that you install the supplied pressure regulator, perhaps you didnt install that and thats where the pipe sizing diff is.

Hi, I guess you question is how to use these pipes.
You can use manifold pipe adapters/ fittings which can connect pipes of two different sizes.
I can look for one if you can tell me about the pipe. what brand is it? did you get it along with the Cooktop ?

Thanks, :)

Viking model VGR48 stovetop burners will not ignite?


First shut off the gas supply & disconnect electrical power to the range.
  • Remove all the burner control knobs, grates, burner caps & trim rings.
  • Remove the 2 screws securing the manifold panel, one from each corner. The panel will drop down.
  • Remove the screws from each manifold pipe mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 inch hex head bolt from the center of the manifold pipe. Push supply tube back to release from manifold pipe. Lift the cooktop assembly at the front to clear the 1/2 inch locator pins attached to the top of the bodyside.
  • Place cardboard between each side of cooktop & bodyside to prevent damage.
  • Move the cooktop to one side, being careful not to put stress on the wiring harness on left side.
  • Remove the wire from the electrode.
  • Remove the screw from the electrode mounting bracket to release the electrode.
You can replace the electrode & reassemble following instructions in reverse order.

I have a quote from a contractor to install a Rinnai R75 tankless water heater. The heater normally requires 3/4 piping. My home has 1/2" piping. The contractor says 3/4" is better but 1/2"...


There are advantages and disadvantages to both pipe sizes. Typically, most houses utilize 3/4 inch or larger to supply high volume circuits like the circuit from the meter (or well) to the hot water heater, outside spigot, or water softener. Distribution from water heaters is usually 3/4 for the main branch but this is reduced for the runs to the sink, dishwasher, washing maching. The reason for reducing the size is to reduce the volume of water in the tube or to reduce the amount of cold water you run down the drain before it turns hot.
Since your house seems to have 1/2 inch supply to the current water heater, I would suggest staying with the current size. The option is to enlarge the tubing from supply to distribution which can be a major plumbing task. If your current water pressure (at the faucet) is ok, then go with what you have.

6 burner propane fed will not allow all burners to produce a usable flame for cooking,grill is not hot enough


I need more information, but I suspect you may not have a large enough regulator on your propane line. The only way to know for sure is to attach a gauge called a manometer onto the manifold that feeds the gas burners. There is a 1/8 inch pipe fitting on the manifold for this purpose. It should read 10 inches of water column. You need a capacity to run about 300,000 BTUs when everything is on at the same time. This requires a large capacity regulator. Also the line from the regulator to the range should be at least 3/4 inch pipe.

I am purchasing a home with a kenmore elite gas range model # 790.3670--the seller doesn't seem to know if the oven is electric or gas. What is standard?


Electric or gas would be standard. If this is a stove like in the picture you provided, and is gas on top ... it is probably gas inside. You could always look to see if it has a burner or a calrod. See if there is a setting for Pilot or Igniter. Electric ovens don't need a pilot nor an igiter.

Of course, you could turn it on ... or pull it away from the wall to see what the connection is ... gas pipe or, if electric is involved, a very heavy electric cord - probably 50 amp 220 volts. If it has a small cord plugged into a standard wall outlet ... definitely gas fired. You say the top is gas so there will be a flex pipe for the gas ...

I searched Sears - they claim there is no such model.

Your agent should be able to tell by looking.

Hi,
Yes if you are only going 30 feet with the 1/2" black iron you will be fine.
This will give you all the gas you need for your range.
