I am in the process of changing my stove and microwave/hood combo. The store is charging $99 for installation of the stove which is probably the connection of the flex pipe and inserting the plug in an outlet.

Can the installation of the stove be done by a layperson with two pipe wrench and a little soap and water or am I missing something here.

You could probably do it yourself with little trouble.
If the old unit has been around awhile and it's an electric stove (uses 220), the new plug might not match your old jack. I think some old ones are 3-prong, while new ones can be 4-prong. If you have a 3-prong jack and your stove requires 4, you should replace the old jack, not the new plug.

It is a gas stove with a regular 110v plug that I'm repacing with the same kind.
