Nothing should be fitted in this “Hot Zone”. This includes any plugs, kitchen units or anything else that could burn or melt. Drop the hob down onto the sealing strips and tighten the clips. It’s now time to call the gas fitter; you can find a local fitter here. Competence :- depends on a combination of training and experience and is also combined with assessemnt and re-assessment every 5 years by the ACS scheme which all gas fitters have to do to prove cmpetence. Doing any job, people should research the particular job carefully. Methods, building reg, etc continually change and being up to speed is very important. Being qualified is one things, knowing everything there is to know about a particular subject (weather in the trade or not) is another.

There are some simple guidelines to follow when it comes to where you shouldn’t place your gas hob: Don’t assume that just because the gas hob or the connection hose is brand new that it can’t possibly leak. Defects can occur during manufacture and also things can get damaged during storage and transport. And although failure to observe the code is not in its self an offence it will be used in any criminal proceedings. I understand your concerns, as an IEE 16th Edition Qualified spark I have the same reservations about people working on electricity but if they obtain or attempt to obtain the information to do the job right doesn't that show they have the initiative to do the job right? Hot Zones: When installing your cooker or hob, take note of the hot zone on top of and on either side of the appliance. Make sure that there is nothing fixed for 760mm above it, including the extractor hood. On both sides, the hot zone is at 150mm where nothing is placed up to a height of 460mm. Once you have your hot zone laid out, there should be no plugs, kitchen units or wares placed here that could burn or melt.Most retailers are careful to provide lots of information so that you get the right size hob for the space you have in your kitchen. Fitting a Gas Hob Yourself

Now you are ready to fit your new hob, although it is wise to have a good read of the appliance instructions before you start so that you are familiar with the measurements for your particular gas hob.The valve of your gas hob controls the gas supply from the pipe to the jet. It is either fully opened or fully closed. The jet is used to distribute the gas evenly through tiny slots that form a circle on the edge of the burner. In the middle of this circle, a burner cap prevents food from spilling onto the burner and keeps the gas flow focused on the burner slots. When you switch your knob on, the ignitor creates the spark that should burn the gas as it exits from these slots. Just to wind up the corgi boys even more, I did move my boiler as well 2 feet to the left of where it was and it works a treat, I have installed a combined gas leak/ CO detector just to make sure and it looks like I have done the job right. I understand the Corgi's engineers concerns but being so dismissive of someones capability because they asked what appears to be a simple question isn't a indication of the more complex issues with gas installation already researched by paddyalan and that with was simply the final answer to that research of the overall job !!!.

I'm actually a fully trained and fully qualified electrician, with a degree in electronics and a good standing in mechanical design and fitting. I may not have an acs or corgi cert but I do understand rules and regs which is why the job is now done to the correct corgi standard and spec. Tested and all! My local plumbers merchant tried to fob me off by saying thats how they all do it! I found it unbelievable that they would use that many joints! I was even told by them that the use of a cooker hose was acceptable. My understanding is that this is OK for free standing but not for fixed install above the oven. If there are no instructions the usual size of the hole is 25mm less (all round) than the actual size of the hob. I agree with paddyalans research into installing his HOB. Researching this job has resulted in it being installed competently.

Gas Supplies

I would point you all to the a very useful resource for information.

The hob has the usual BSP tapered connector on it. I would imagine that the connector to the gas main would have to be an elbow with an end feed or compression fit on it to the pipe and a threaded connection on the other end of the elbow. Would you use a slip coupling to achieve this fit and where would you obtain this connector. Drill a 25mm hole inside the cut out area (more than one can be drilled if it makes life easier for you) and use a jig saw to cut out the hole required for the hob. A gas hob is cut into a worktop and sits over a kitchen base unit like the one in the image above. Before it is cut you need to measure the hob itself, or use the manufacturers fitting instructions and/or template to make sure you know the exact opening size to cut.A very common size is 600mm wide by 500mm deep. The size of the hole you will need to cut into your worktop will be smaller than the overall hob size.
