Questions about replacing electric cooktop with gas (GE JPG331)

I'm replacing an electric cooktop with a gas cooktop and have some questions.

1) I bought the gas cooktop used off of Craigslist. I didn't come with a pressure regulator and I'm not sure if I need one (I'm on natural gas). Some people say that natural gas is regulated at the meter and so it's unnecessary, while other insist it is necessary. If it is, do I have to pay $75 for the OEM part or can I get a generic replacement at HomeDepot?

2) As far as running the pipe, I understand that HomeDepot will thread the pipe I buy there, but what about where I tap in to tee off of the existing pipe? Do I need to thread the pipe for that or are there non-threaded fittings for stuff like that?

    Okay, thanks.

    So how to you install a threaded T into an existing pipe? Will I have to reconnect everything downline from the T?

Hi, I can get you the regulator for $66.95. The part would have to be ordered. Yes it does need the regulator. I'm sorry but there are no generic regulators for this and for the safety of your family, you do not want to cut corners if possible. Yes you will need a threaded T to connect to existing pipe. Please let me know if I can assist you further with the [art.

THanks

    My burner sparks though my burners are off


    did you spill liquid on the cooktop? sometimes if you just let it sit for a few days to let it dry out it will fix itself. but if you spilled oil on it it will not fix itself. you have a bad spark module and the only way to fix that is to remove the cookyop fromt he burner box. and find where all the wire go into this usually redish orange box sometimes its blue. but that is your spark module. let me know if you have any more questions

    Slight propane leak in JDC8536


    gas is not in the diy domain as it is more deadly than electricity
    call in a gas fitter who will have a gas sniffer to determine the exact position of the leak and carry out the repair
    by the time you can smell the gas , it is already at the explosive mix with the air
