Natural gas travels from supply pipes in your home into your
appliances via flexible, corrugated metal connector tubes. Because they're
usually out of sight, you might not think about them.
It's important to have your connectors checked to make sure that
older, uncoated brass versions are replaced with new stainless
steel or plastic-coated brass connectors. You likely won't be able to
see your connectors, so call a qualified professional to remove the
old connector and install a new one, if needed.
For your safety, please don't move your appliances. Movement can
cause an old connector to break, creating a hazardous situation.
