    Default Natural gas shutoff for built in stove

    Can the gas shutoff for a stove be located below the floor, in the basement? There is easy access there.

    I ask the question because the alternative is to come up through an adjacent base cabinet (from below), install a shutoff inside the cabinet, take a horizontal turn and exit out of the cabinet to the stove.

    It would be simpler to just come up through the floor behind the stove.

    Thanks,

    Jay

    Code requires it (I think) to be in the same room. Now, when I had mine installed, I had the guy put in one above, and one below the floor where it was easier to get to.

    Within 6', in the same room, and accessible.

    And any flexible "hose" to it cannot go through the cabinet wall or floor.

    You can't get away with putting it below. The issue of in the same room...ACCESSIBLE......is a mostly overlooked requirement, I supposed since it is so hard to achieve. I guess they figure it is accessible even if you have to pull the stove out while it is on fire!!!!
