tighten gas connect to stove

Hi. I think I may not have a tight gas stove connection. I moved the stove out to clean it was ok; but when I moved it back, I feel like a may have a slight headache. How do I tighten the connection just to be sure? Thank you.

I too get a headache every time my wife makes a big spill and I have to pull out the oven to clean, but I don't think of a headache as a common symptom of exposure to natural gas or propane. Either way you should have smelled the rotten egg smell of the gas long before it got to headache causing levels.

Get some children's bubble soap or mix some dish soap with water. Paint or spray the soapy solution on the connections in question. If you see bubbles forming then there is a leak.
