Question about Thermador PRDS486GLUS Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range
My stove has been "screaming" like a fire alarm and flashing FI for over 4 hours now. It started after my rice overboiled. I turned everything off then cleaned the stove top completely. The "alarm & F1 message" will not stop. I have tried everything. PLEASE HELP. The noise is driving me crazy. Thank you Joy

I have a Thermadore 6 burner gas cooktop PCG366E purchased January 08. I purchased the LP conversion kit, they only make one kit for all models. The instructions included with the kit were written for an older model and have not been updated by Thermador. The gas regulator is located next to gas inlet pipe. You have to get at it from above. Remove the 2 star burners over that side of the cooktop. You will need a 20mm socket to remove the nut at the center of the star burner. Lift it off and disconnect the wire to the ignitor ( You need to push on the spring lock in order to seperate the the connector terminal). Remove the stainless steel pan and then remove the metal pan underneath ( you will need a Torxs bit for this screw or vise grips). You should now see the regulator. At the top of the regulator is a cap with the letters NG visible. Twist this a 1/4 turn ccw, lift up and turn over to expose the letters LP reinsert. The regulator is now ready. You will need to replace the orifice tips at each burner. Use a 7mm socket with an extension. Put a piece of tape in the socket to hold the orifice in place while you insert it. You also need to adjust the valves. You must pull off the knobs and and remove the trim bezel. If you look through the screw hole on the right you will see a screw head (bypass screw). Insert long skinny flat blade screwdriver through the hole and turn the screw CW all the way (about 1/4 to 1/2 turn in my case). My cooktop had two burners with a low simmer feature, This devise is located in front of the bypass screw. It has a hole in it but does not align well with the head of the bypass screw and makes it difficult to turn the scew. Thats it, I hope this info has been helpful. I have not yet connected the propane therefore have not tested the unit but it should work.

I own a similar range. As you can imagine I was dismayed to find out that my $6000 heap can't run a clean cycle, unless of course you just don't want to use your oven again. let me give you a tip something WILL break on your oven every time you use the self cleaning "feature".
The first time I used the self cleaning feature the board burnt up, I asumed hat this was a fluke. The second time the pvertemp sensor burnt out. The next few times that I was brave enough to try it the overtemp sensor triggered this is what I hope has gone wrong with yours since while it's not easy or convenient to fix it is free. If you pull out your range and remove the backsplash and then the rear panel there should be a breaker with a button you can push to reset. On mine it is located near the top of the oven compartment on the left side near the middle. I hope that works for you and you will soon learn as I have after doing this a few times that the self cleaning cycle is just not worth it. It willdo this every time and it really is just easier to use easy off and clean the oven by hand. I realize that is not what you had in mind doing when you bought a luxury Item like a 36" thermador range, but I hope you don't have to hate yours as much as I hate mine.

I had the exact same problem. I read someone else turned off the circuit breaker in the electrical panel.. so I tried that. Flipped breaker off for 30 seconds and then turned back on. Oven now works perfectly as before. Go figure??
