I'm in the middle of putting a new kitchen in and have recently had a new gas pipe installed. The plumber connected my existing free standing Gas Cooker so we could cook, until the new gas hob and electic oven had been fitted to the kitchen.

I would now like to disconnect the gas cooker so I can fit my cabinets. The new gas hob will be fitted by a Corgi registered plumber.

I don't really want to spend money on a call out fee just for someone to unconnect it, it this something I can do myself?

I have no idea how it works though?

Any advice appricated.

Best wishes,

Alan

Apparently only CORGI people have the right wrist action to disconnect a bayonet.

http://www.hse.gov.uk/foi/internalops/fod/oc/400-499/440_29.pdf

The link above is from the HSE website and covers the GSIUR 1998
(Gas Safety Installation and Use Regulations 1998).

paragarph 9 says

"9 However, the simple connection or disconnection of a bayonet fitting or other self-sealing coupling (such as used on a gas cooker hose), for
instance by a private consumer, has been excluded from the definition. This is largely to avoid the need for anyone doing this, purely to move the
appliance, to be subject to the requirements of reg.3, and other regulations referring to 'work', such as reg.26(9)."

Basically if you can push up and twist the connected hose and it comes away from the fitting then this means you can disconnect it yourself. If you can't then it is best to get someone who is qualified to do it.

      just to help decipher the above. Bayonet connections are a fitting that is exempt from the gas safety regulations in that you do not need to be a registered engineer to disconnect the hose from the bayonet fitting-as long as that is what you have got! You may not however attempt to remove the bayonet from the fitting on the pipework to permanently cap it etc
