Gas stove hookup


Trying to hookup a 48" KItchenAid gas stove.

I have a 3/4 inch connection going from floor and a 3/4" connection at the stove.

The pressure regulator that I have is 1/2 both sides.

Do I have the correct size Pressure Regulator? If so, what parts do i need to go from 3/4 to 1/2 to 3/4?

Why 1/2" and not 3/4" on both ends?

Reducer couplings 3/4" to 1/2" on each side. Unless it's a huge input the reg should work just fine

I assume this is a residential stove, not commercial. The 1/2 " regulator will work just fine. The regulator has an arrow, which points the direction of the gas flow, to the stove. The parts, from supply to the stove should be
Riser from floor
Manual gas valve, should have WOG on the valve someplace. Which means Water, Oil, Gas usage.
Flex gas line, long enough to move the stove for cleaning. I install 48" hoses. Do not connect 2 hoses together.
Regulaltor, with the adaptors mentioned in the previous post
Stove 3/4" gas pipe.
Use a pipe lube on all connections. Use a soap solution to check for leaks.

My Wolf specifies 3/4 ID pipe to the appliance with 1/2 connections.

If someone attempts to sell you pipe bushings to make the size change over tell them no thanks I want bell reducers.
