Can you advise me on gas connections needed and how to fit connections


I think you are better off going to a Home Depot or Lowes or a plumbing supply house and ask for a gas stove hook-up kit. Then you ask all the questions you need, and ask questions over until you have a good knowledge of what to do and how to do it. There is a great safety factor here, so you need to be clear on how to do the hook up. You can take some pictures of the gas line and of the stove hook up pipe. If you do not have a gas line coming into the kitchen for the stove hook up, then get a qualified technician to install the gas feed.

The tank leaks from the two bolts that hold tank to bowl. I replaced bolts and the rubber gasket (it has ears). Slow dripping from two bolts.


Under the heads of the two bolts (inside the tank) there should also be rubber washers. Remove the bolts, clean the bolt holes (in the tank) thoroughly (a nylon scouring pad works). If the rubber washer aren't new, replace them. If the bolts aren't new, replace them too. While you have it apart, thoroughly clean the surfaces where the large rubber gasket seats too, in case your leak is coming from there. If cleaning and new bolts and washers doesn't fix it, you might try some plumbers putty or bathtub silicon caulk (not on the large gasket). Coat the two rubber washer generously all over. Good luck.

My house wires from the electic stove top has 3 wires and my new bosch electric top has 4 on red, white, green, yellow?


hook the red and yellow off the new stove to the two hot phases-then connect the white on the new unit to the neutral power connection and finally the green wire can hook to the same neutral wire also as long as the power comes directly from the main electrical panel in the home, but not a sub-panel

Where is the gas input located on the back of a duets dryer. I need exact location to purchase correct length gas line prior to delivery tomorrow.


The standard dryer BTU rating is 22,000 btus. A 3/8 connector by 60 inch will be good enough to handle it. Just make sure that you get the size that matches you gas line valve flare fitting. The connector should hook directly up to the gas line valve without an adapter. The adapter will come with the connector and that goes on the pipe thread connection at the back of the dryer. You only need to use PTFE tape or sealent on the pipe thread at the back of the dryer. You do use any tape or sealent on the flare fittings.

I am running new 220 lines for my dryer and stove I would like to see a wiring diagram for hooking the new wire into the fuse panel.The existing service was gas.thanks


on a 220 set-up the green wire goes to the neutral bar where the white wires from the 110 breakers are connected. the two remaing wires, black and white go to the double breaker you will be using for power. it doesn't matter which wire goes to either breaker. at the power outlet that the dryer is the green wire goes to the ground (:-) the right hand side of this simple diagram, and it doesn't matter which of the two remaining wires hook up to the left side of the outlet (black and white)
