frozen gas line connection


I'm relocating a gas range and relocating gas lines to fit new location
one of the old connections cannot be loosened. any advice on loosening the connection or is it just brute force?

2 - 24" pipe wrenches. One to hold the stationary end, the other to turn the other end (yea brute force)

Yup, you probably need a larger wrench. Most of the time when someone has a stuck fitting it's because they're trying to use a 12in wrench on a fifty year old rusted 1in fitting. Don't forget to hold back though.

Larger wrenches than you've tried, or use a cheater pipe on the handle of the largest turning pipe wrench that you have for leverage.
Good Luck!
