Having a new Kenmore 5' gas range connector is the key with installing your new gas range. Old connectors wear out in the fitting where the seal may have been broken by age or by moving the connector several times turning the threads creating gaps for gas to escape. The new connector is packaged with several sized fittings to adapt to your main line in your home with ease. It comes with thread tape for proper seal and a soap solution to check for leaks after threads have been tightened. If you see bubbles after you have turned the gas on to your main line, turn the gas main off, ventilate the room for 1/2 hour, re-tighten and try once more with the soap solution test. This is to ensure that you have no gas leak. The nice thing about delivery of your appliance is that the delivery team will professionally hook up your connector for you at no charge. You must purchase the connector at time of delivery scheduling. If you have any questions about your appliance, call your local Kmart appliance dept. and we will help you.
It's just a hose but if you're in California, check your city/county's code. If you need earthquake protection - get a kit from ***************** and add the valve you need. The cost is $27 and includes a 48" hose.
The item did the job. The technician came in and unhooked the old connector and had no issues with the install of this new one. Excellent!
What can I say about this item! I mean have you ever seen such a lovely piece of tubing and brass connectors?!?!?
If you don't buy this, you're crazy! Tell you friends!!!
Just ordered it for the new range and Sears took care of it!
We love the stainless steel look of the appliance.. We are remodellign our kitchen it is easy to clean. We trust Samsung products so we know that we will get along life out of this appliance rest assured we will take advantage of the 1 year warranty but know that we most likely not use it ..... that is if w did not get a lemon.
my wife loves the gas stove and we had to buy a new gas range connector so they would install the stove.over all not a bad deal buy the connector for twenty dollars and sears will install the stove.
We bought a new gas range and this was the connector piece we needed. It was available in the store and it was a cinch for my father in law, who is a plumber, to install. The range has worked perfectly since we installed it.
I love my stove and I know the correct parts will enable my stove to last a long time. I always feel secure when I purchase Kenmore products because Sears stands behind everything they sell. I know if I have a problem I will be helped.
This flexible gas connector line by Kenmore allows the gas range to be pulled away from the wall for cleaning. As it is flexible there is no worry about gas leaks. A dependable item at a good price.
Works and looks for !y needs
This was the recommended connector for the gas range I purchased. It is advertised as a flexible connector, which it is, but the metal is pretty stiff, and the installers had to keep bending it various times in order for the range to be pushed as closely as possible to the wall. Then, the range turned out to be defective, and I had to have another one installed. The second range also has some minor issues, and so I'm contemplating exchanging it for a third one. I definitely am concerned that all this bending of the connector cannot be good for its longevity. I wish it was flexible like the dishwasher hose.
yay it works!
I could not be more pleased with my new Whirlpool range. It looks nice, was easy to learn and bakes perfect. My old stove was 28 years old and it is such a pleasure to cook on this one. I am already looking forward to cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my family. I might even have a practice run in June.
Works like a charm
Works great! But black is very hard to keep clean!
Good product, but adapter it came with was wrong size. Fortunately, the old connector had a correct size adapter we had to reuse. Make sure you seal connections with pipe tape (or similar) and check for gas leak with liquid soap.
