converting electic stove to gas stove


I want to covert my electirc stove to a gas stove, I do have a gas hot water heater right below where the stove will hook up. Will this make the conversion easier?

Ayuh,... I assume you mean Replace the electric stove with a gas stove,..??

If so,... Sure, yank out the electric stove, run a gas line, 'n hook it up to the new gas stove...

Look into the new induction ranges, you may want to skip gas, especially as its cost keeps going up.

Oh it's definitely not simple, both of us are over simplifying the process just to show it can be done. Even switching to induction range which I HIGHLY recommend vs. gas will require new wire and a 50 amp breaker.

Single post questions tend to be trolls. As a result spending time on detailed answers generally isn't necessary.
