Can i just unconnect the coupling from the connection on the wall to disconnect and remove a gas cooker? Is it self  sealing?

Have someone with the correct gas paperwork and certificated in the gas industry to check for you. If anything went wrong, just imagine.

What a stupid question to ask on the internet!
 

Nobody knows what type of connection you have, how old it is, how well installed it was in the first place, whether it has been damaged at any point or any amount of other vital information.

 

GET A GAS ENGINEER TO LOOK AT IT!!! 😳

Doesn't mean it's self sealing doesn't mean if it is that it works....

 

The only safe seal you have us the cylinder tap at the meter.

 

Get someone in if you have to ask the question you are sadly not competent to work on it

It's a bayonet fitting

You should be fine.  I’ve just disconnected a gas cooker and it was self sealing. If you want to double check the connection is sealed use a bit of washing up liquid and if there is no bubbles all should be fine

If you do it wrong, blow your house up but you and your family survive, remember to tell the bank (your insurance won't pay out by the way) and authorities that rudds1 said "all should be fine".

Whip it off and wave a lit fag at it.

 

You'll soon know if it's self sealing or not.
